Situated in one of the fastest growing areas of Australia and only a one-hour drive north from Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast is an exciting and progressive region for students to live, learn and start their futures.
The Sunshine Coast is home to a welcoming community, and an endless coastline and hinterland. It is a place where students feel safe and happy from the moment they arrive.
The Sunshine Coast offers great beaches, hiking, water sports, mountains and rainforests. The sunny climate is ideal for year-round activities. Swim, sail, surf, jet ski, snorkel, paddle board or water ski in crystal-clear water.
The Sunshine Coast is classified as a regional area by immigration. This means students can claim an additional 5 points on the Australian Immigration Points Test for studying in a regional area and may be able to apply for a Skilled Work Regional Visa (subclass 491).
Why study a trade?
Studying the right trade or vocational course can greatly increase your chances of receiving Work Visas to Australia.
But migration can be very difficult to understand. There are so many different types of visas and so much information out there, which can make it super challenging to know what is accurate for your circumstance.
Therefore we’ve created a booklet for you that explains a pathway that has been tried and tested. Pathway to Aus has had many of its students successfully go down this path to achieve Permanent Residency.
This pathway is not for everyone, however it may be for you!
Step 1: Study a course or package of courses
Step 2: Receive the Temporary Graduate Visa
Step 3: Participate in the Job Ready Program
Your employer will not need to sponsor your visa, as you will already be on the graduate visa. This will mean that you have a much higher chance of finding employment as it is very easy for the employer to hire you. You may find this video on the Job Ready Program helpful.
Step 4: Apply for a General Skilled Migration Visas
