Credit Card for International Student Visa

I was wondering if Bankwest would consider me to get a credit card. I have been banking with Bankwest since arriving last Aug 2014 and all my money goes through it. I am on a postgraduate visa sub-class 574 which gives me unlimited working rights. Aside from my part time work income, I also have a regular allowance good for 4 years. I have tried popping into a branch but they never even allow me to go beyond the formal application since I am an international student. I have friends who are also international students with similar circumstances with me and they were granted a credit card with their bank, NAB.


Please enlighten me on this matter. Otherwise, I may have to consider switching to a different bank who understands us more.
