Steps to Studying in Aus

Here are the steps you need to take before receiving an invitation to apply for the visa.


Get in Touch

You can give us a call, send an email or enquire online using the form down below.


Set Study Goals

One of our consultants will reply to any questions that you may have and assist in determining your overall study goals whilst in Australia.

Find a Study Path

Our consultants will then talk students through a range of study options that best suit your needs and develop a study path.

Enrol to a School

Once a specific education provider has been chosen, your consultant will then help students complete their school application and assist throughout the entire enrolling process.

Apply for Student Visa

Once your enrollment has been confirmed, our qualified migration agents will assist in applying for your student visa.

Temporary Graduate Visa

If undertaking study in Australia for a minimum of 2 years you may qualify for the Temporary Skilled Graduate Visa. This visa allows the holder 1.5 years of unlimited work rights in Australia. Many graduates use this time to build up experience in their field or find an employer that is willing to sponsor their visa.

If you have applied for the Temporary Graduate Visa you may also be eligible to apply for the Job Ready Program. The Job Ready Program is run through TRA and allows graduates in certain disciplines to have their skills assessed for skilled migration purposes. It is a way for people with no experience to have their skills assessed. Once the student receives a positive skills assessment they may be eligible to apply for permanent work visas such as State Sponsored and General Skilled Migration Visas.

Note: It is never recommended to engage in studies for the sole purpose of trying to gain a visa to Australia. Speak to us and we can find a course that matches your long-term career goals.
