The Temporary Graduate Visa (subclass 485) is a work visa to which international students who have completed 92 weeks of study can apply. There are two paths available to this visa, one for those who have completed university studies and the other for vocational training studies. This visa can last between 18 months and 4 years according to the studies carried out.
This is an excellent alternative to extend your stay in Australia and increase your chances of applying for a permanent visa later on. With the graduate visa, you will be able to work full time for at least 18 months, thus having the possibility of finding a sponsor and requesting the sponsored visa.
With the Temporary Graduate Visa, you will have the opportunity to pursue your career in Australia. Besides, the graduate visa allows you to add a relative to work in the country without time limitations.
This type of visa is for international students who have recently graduated with skills and qualifications relevant to specific occupations Australia needs. This graduate student visa allows you to live, study and work in Australia temporarily.
With the graduate work stream visa Australia you can:
This visa is for international students who have recently graduated with a degree from an Australian institution. It allows you to live, work and study in Australia, temporarily.
With the Post-Study Work stream you can:
You will need a recent degree and a course registered in CRICOS
The Skilled Recognised Graduate visa allows recent engineering graduates to live, work or study in Australia for up to 18 months. For this, you must have obtained a degree or higher qualification from a specific institution in the last 2 years, be under 31 years old and have not previously been the main visa holder of a subclass 476 or 485 visa.
If you are thinking of applying for the Graduate visa at the end of your studies to work in Australia full time, you must meet a series of requirements, with which you will avoid setbacks when applying for the 485 visa. Applying for a 485 visa will be easy if you meet the Australian Study Requirements, which is the most difficult thing to do. When applying for the Temporary Graduate Visa, to meet the study requirements you must have completed:
Important: If you are going to apply for a graduate visa, you must have completed your study in the 6 months immediately before applying.
Each qualification that you have completed and that you trust to meet this requirement must:
Note: English language proficiency courses or enabling programs to meet the Australian study requirement will not be valid. The requirement of 2 academic years of study must equal 92 weeks contributing to 1 or more acceptable grades.
The study of two academic years, or 92 weeks of registered study, is based on the duration of the course registered by CRICOS. You can take longer to complete your course, but you will only be credited for the number of weeks that CRICOS determines as the standard duration. Only completed studies count towards the 2 academic years. Except for failed subjects.
The Australian studies requirement cannot be met in less than 16 calendar months. This period begins when the course begins until the date all academic requirements have been completed. If your study credits shorten the amount of time you physically studied your course in Australia to less than 16 calendar months, then you may not meet the Australian study requirement.
You may want to complete an additional eligible qualification, so your additional qualification must be of sufficient duration recorded in CRICOS to offset the credited units of your course (s), leading to the 92 weeks total.
You can still meet the Australian studies requirement if your course included study abroad, provided you complete at least 2 academic years of study in no less than 16 months in Australia on a CRICOS registered course. You must complete at least 16 months of face-to-face study in Australia. You will not have met the Australian study requirements if:
Provide a certified copy of the completion letter from your educational provider showing:
Applications for a Graduate visa must be made within six months of the course completion date. The course completion date refers to the date you met the academic requirement for the degree, diploma, or business qualification and were informed by:
This date should not be confused with the date the diploma was awarded. The award date is the date the student receives their grade. At a graduation ceremony.
