What if I want a holiday?
Under DIAC legislation, holidays are not granted to students on student visas. Under special circumstances it may be possible to defer your course, but in order to do this you must leave Australia.

What if I am sick?

If you are sick or have a personal problem, please ring up ABI to let us know what is happening. You will need a doctor’s certificate if you miss your class because of a sickness. You need to keep the original to show DIAC in case they question your attendance.

When you enroll with ABI you are required by law to have Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) and when you arrive at the ABI, your health card should be ready for you at the start of your studies at ABI.
