Australia Visa Rules for Indian Students

by / Thursday, 13 March 2014 / Published in Australia Visa

Article below for PSW rules of Australia:

Excerpts — DIAC has confirmed that a combination of courses, including Graduate Diplomas and Graduate Certificates, one year bachelor PLUS one-year master, and two 1-year masters degrees, will qualify postgraduate coursework students for the visa.

Please note that:

  • Bachelor degree studies of a minimum of 2 year will qualify students – but any period of diploma studies will not be counted towards the “Australian Study Requirement”, so students should be advised to take a Dipoma course that provides a maximum of one year credit towards a 3-year bachelor degree
  • While Graduate Certificates and Graduate Diplomas will count towards the study requirement, they must be qualifying courses for the relevant master degree. In other words, a student cannot do a 1.5 years master degree, and then after the master take a Graduate Certificate to reach the 2 year study requirement. Such students should be counselled to take a second master degree

Post-study work rights announced

DIAC has announced the long-awaited implementation details of the new Post study Work Stream within the 485 visa class. As expected, the visa will provide, for those students who first applied for a student visa after 5 November 2011, a 2-year stay following completion of a bachelor or master degree, a 3 year stay following a master by research and a 4 year stay following a doctorate.

DIAC has confirmed that a combination of courses, including Graduate Diplomas and Graduate Certificates, one year bachelor PLUS one-year master, and two 1-year masters degrees, will qualify postgraduate coursework students for the visa.
