There is no minimum duration to approve a course, but the duration of a course may affect the date from which you are considered a full-time student. Note: The time rules allowed for Austudy do not apply to YA. Students in austudy must exceed their authorized time instead of reaching it (see 184.108.40.206). This is if you have already studied in a tertiary course but have not completed the course. Policy Reference: Guide SS 220.127.116.11 Ya Completion of Activity Test, 18.104.22.168 YA Full-time Students, 22.214.171.124 YA Full-Time Students Satisfactory Progress Example 1: Vincent is 20 years old and has completed 1 year of a university degree in Business. He retired from commercial studies and switched to engineering after 1 year. Since Vincent withdrew from his previous course for reasons that were NOT beyond his control, Vincent must enter into and comply with the terms of a YA Activity Agreement until he completes his course within the time considered satisfactory in that course or is no longer qualified for YA, whichever comes first. However, a person MAY be approved in certain circumstances to continue their education as a YA job seeker (with the study approved as a short and approved activity). These students must register their studies in a PPE. Example 2: Lisa is 22 years old and has a 2-year degree in computer science. Lisa dropped out of computer science at the end of the second year and started working. After a 2-year hiatus, Lisa returns to university, retires from her computer science studies and begins a degree in landscape architecture.
Lisa can be paid for the degree in Landscape Architecture. However, since she has withdrawn from her previous course, she must complete and comply with the terms of a YA activity agreement until she completes her course within the time frame considered satisfactory in that course or is no longer qualified for YA, whichever comes first. All previous studies are ignored and the time allotted for their completion in landscape architecture is reset. Higher education is any study at a level higher than secondary education (or the equivalent of secondary education). This study can range from relatively simple courses that last a few weeks to highly specialized courses that last several years. If you are studying a number of tertiary courses, select the most appropriate level for your course from the drop-down list, e.B certificate, diploma or degree. Payments managed by Centrelink for students are not paid indefinitely. A limit is set on how long you can still receive a payment at each level of study. This limit is based on the course you will currently take. Other studies that you have already conducted at the same level can also be considered. For tertiary studies, the time allowed is the minimum time required to complete the course full-time, plus an additional period of study. If a course has semester topics, the time allowed is the minimum time plus a semester.
If the course has one-year subjects, the time allowed is the minimum time plus an additional academic year. A student identification number (ID) or personal identification number (PIN) will be issued to you by the educational institution upon registration. If you received one of the numbers, enter it in this field, for example, JS12345. Payments managed by Centrelink for students are not paid indefinitely. A limit is set on how long you can still receive a payment at each level of study. This limit is based on the course you will currently take. Other studies that you have already conducted at the same level can also be considered. Only the normal minimum duration of a completed course is taken into account, whether you have actually studied longer or not. For a non-student contribution course, a student is considered a full-time student if: Explanation: A failure in a course occurs when a student is prevented from completing the course by the institution for any reason. .
