After you have arrived in Australia, there are yet many things left to be done. First and foremost, all the students must get in touch with the High Commission/Consulate by the means of either an email or a letter. This is done in order to convey that you have arrived. The main components of this communication are details about you including your contact details, basic details about you meaning your name and address. If you are joining an educational institution, then do notify the name of the institution and also the details of the course that you are joining. You must also notify them the time you intend to stay.

There are a number of student services offered like counseling, job assistance etc… You will also need to open a bank account for your bank needs. Help in this matter is also extended by the student services. Generally, there are various banks at the campus itself to choose from.
