Study Requirement for Skilled Migration Australia
AIS Immigration Solutions can help you understand the study requirement for skilled migration to Australia. International students who complete a qualification/s within Australia that take at least 2 years of study will be eligible to obtain additional points towards their Skilled Migration Points Test and may also be eligible for a Graduate Temporary Subclass 485 Visa.
For more information about the study requirements for skilled migration and the points for 2 year study in AU, please get in touch with our team of professional migration agents on +61 7 3216 0052 or book a Skype meeting here.
Studying in Australia: The Benefits
There are several benefits to studying in Australia including receiving additional points towards your Skilled Visa application. The point advantages are as follows:
Students can receive extra points for their studies:
- 5 points for meeting the 2 year study requirement
- 5 additional points if they complete 2 years of study in a regional area
- 5 additional points for completing a professional year in Australia
There is a time limit imposed for students wanting to apply for a Graduate Temporary Subclass 485 visa – they must apply within 6 months of completing their qualification. Other factors to consider include:
- The completion date is the date you are notified of your final results, not your graduation date (which may be many months after you complete studies).
- In most cases, your student visa will expire within a few weeks or months of completion of your studies. You will need to apply for a further visa before your student visa expires and this in practice is a tighter deadline.
- You can claim points for Australian study even if it has been more than 6 months from the date you completed your studies.
