Tasmania Graduate Nomination
By studying a course in Tasmania, it could open yourself up to the Graduate Nomination Pathway to apply for the Skilled Regional (Subclass 491) or the State Nominated (Subclass 190).
In order to encourage people to study in Tasmania, the state makes it easier for it’s graduates to migrate there afterwards.
It is one of the only states in Australia to have such an open pathway for students.

Eligible occupations for 190 & 491 visa
Tasmania have said they are most interested in those students who can make a positive contribution to the state. They would like you to have an occupation on the Tasmanian Skilled Occupations List (TSOL) may help inform your choice of course.
The state gives particularly high regard to people who have studied or have experience in high-demand occupations, including:
- trades and construction
- community services (including aged and disability care)
Do I need to have a job?
If you do have a job, that is great. But it is not necessarily required. Employment is one aspect Tasmania considers when assessing nomination applications from Tasmanian Graduates. While employment can show you have a genuine capacity to contribute and commitment to stay in Tasmania, the state also recognises that many graduates have focussed on their study and have only just begun to develop their professional career in Tasmania. Therefore if you can demonstrate that you have a career plan and have a high chance of employability, you can still be nominated.
