Create and Edit Students

Managing the students' information accurately and securely is paramount to not only adhere to regulatory compliance but also to streamline administrative processes.

Considerations for Creating Students

Student Type

Depending on the Student Type, some additional options will be available for those students. For example, the Visa and Insurance sections will be available only for Overseas Students. This Student Type is determined by the value of the field ‘Overseas Student' on the student details form. If the option is selected, the student is considered an Overseas Student, otherwise, a Local Student.
