Evidence of Funds Requirement
Depending on your passport nationality, and the education provider you have selected, you may or may not be required to show evidence that you have genuine access to money to support yourself and any family members who accompany you.
Refer to the Immigration Department's Document Checklist Tool to see what you are required to provide as financial evidence.
Even if you not required to include financial documents in your online application, your case officer can request proof of funds at any time. In addition, if you did provide evidence in the application, you can be asked to show additional funds. Be prepared for anything!
The Immigration Department must be satisfied that all students can support themselves during his or her time in Australia. This is a very expensive country in which to live, and relying the limited hours on student work rights will never cover these costs.
These funds support your living, study, and travel in and out of Australia.
This is a breakdown of the amounts:

Who can show the funds for me?
Anyone can show the funds for you, but your case officer will consider:
the type of the relationship you have with that person (close family, girlfriend, employer, etc.)
your income, assets, and employment, and/or the same of the other person providing the funds,
your previous visa history, and the same of the person providing the funds. (ie. have either of you traveled often to Australia?)
Documents as Evidence
There are quite a few different documents you can provide as evidence, but these depend on your situation.
We highly recommend you watch the training video on this topic, as it is quite complicated.
