Ultimate Guide : Study to Migrate in Australia


This guide aims to briefly the process from studying to migrating, offering a structured roadmap to international students and their parents.

Step 1: Knowing your goal, Choosing the Right Course and Institution

Selecting a course that resonates with Australia’s Skilled Occupation List can be a game-changer in the pursuit of employability and migration opportunities.

Institutions recognized by Australian immigration authorities are preferable as their credentials are deemed valid for migration purposes. The location of the institution also plays a pivotal role; regions with higher demand for certain occupations could potentially offer more post-study work opportunities.

Section 2: Understanding Visa Requirements

Securing a Student Visa (subclass 500) is the first step towards your Australian education journey. Key requirements include proving financial capacity, showcasing English language proficiency (IELTS), and having health insurance coverage.

Timely submission of the visa application with all requisite documentation is imperative to avoid any hitches.

Section 3: Gaining Relevant Work Experience

Engaging in part-time work during your studies can not only help with living expenses but also accrue valuable Australian work experience. Internships or work placements in your field of study can significantly enhance your resume.

After graduation, the Temporary Graduate Visa (subclass 485) opens the door to work opportunities, allowing you to amass relevant work experience on Australian soil.

Section 4: Pathways to Permanent Residency

Australia offers various pathways to Permanent Residency (PR). For those with family ties in Australia, the Family-Stream Permanent Visa could be an option. Employment in Australia, especially in occupations listed on the Skilled Occupation List, can lead to a Work-Stream Permanent Visa. Alternatively, the Business or Investor-Stream Permanent Visa could be a pathway for those with substantial financial resources looking to engage in business or investment activities.

Section 5: Preparing for Citizenship

Understanding the residency prerequisites, including the duration of stay before applying for citizenship, is essential. Engaging with local communities, embracing Australian values, and fulfilling residency requirements pave the way for a smooth transition from a permanent resident to a citizen.
