Visa D - Student or Tourist?

My adult daughter is heading to Austria for a 12 week (84 day to be precise) study course. She wishes to also spend some time (an extra 2 months) travelling in Europe. So the plan is to extend her Austrian stay by a week so she can get a Visa Type D. (We are from Australia, and I think the rules are similar to North American visitors: Type D Visa is for 90 to 180 days, and allows up to 90 days visiting other countries as well).

The problem: would it be better to put on the visa application "Student" (even though the course doesn't run 90 days), or "Tourist"? I'm leaning to "Tourist" because it's more generic.

Yeah I know I should probably ask a visa lawyer, but we need to make a decision today. (She has a visa interview tomorrow, which is when she needs to submit her paperwork).
