When you come and study in Australia, you will need to get a bank account with a local bank. There are many options across the country but the biggest bank is CommonWealth, offering you great services.
One of the best ways to start this process is to sign up for a free account with CommonWealth Bank even though you are still in your overseas country. You can transfer money to your account here in Australia and check your balance online.
Once you arrive in Australia as an international student, you can withdraw your money directly from the bank account.
