Australian Student Visa Processing Time 2019

Normal advertised time is 
25 – 36 days if applying offshore
51 – 88 Days if onshore

These are average times only and do not reflect all situations.
Some are taking longer than 88 days in Australia
Some are quick.
If you already have a student visa there is no reason for Immigration to process quickly because you have the right to stay and study regardless while waiting for the grant.

if you are offshore you are considered higher priority because you need to meet course entry dates in Australia and the most regular time is about 4 weeks offshore.
