I'm an italian M.Sc. student. I have an agreement with a professor of the Australian National University for performing (part of) my master thesis abroad.
I will have to stay in Australia for less than 3 months (as then I'll have to come back home to graduate) and I have no plans of working. I will not be awarded any academic title by the Australian National University.
I would like to know what is the visa the better suits my situation. I was thinking to the eVisitor visa (apparently I meet all the requirements - even though it is not very clear whether I can study or not - and it's free!), but I'm not sure whether I'm actually eligible or if there are other visas that better suits my situation.
