Tips for Future Migration Aspects

If you are an international student interested in applying for general skilled migration in future, there are a few things you should keep in mind to improve your prospects for migration.

Consider ways in which you can enhance your application for permanent residence and build more points.

  • Review your educational background. You must have studied for a minimum of 16 calendar months within Australia in a course registered with the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students and you must have completed two academic years of study. If you have exemptions or academic credits from overseas studies, this can impact whether you have sufficient Australian study to lodge an application.
  • Review the state published lists of occupations in demand. If you are able to get a state nomination, you do not need as many points to qualify for migration and your application is processed at a high priority level.
  • If you are thinking about choosing a course, think about choosing a course which would allow you to pass skills assessment in a CSL occupation.
  • Obtaining relevant work experience can earn you extra points. Be aware that the Department of Immigration and Citizenship reviews work experience carefully to ensure that it meets requirements regarding skill level, salary and hours per week.
  • The 18-month Graduate Skilled visa (subclass 485) is a helpful way to obtain more points.
  • Consider engaging in further studies. Completing a completed an Australian degree, diploma or trade qualification earns only five points. Completing an honours year or a masters degree earns 15 points, while an Australian doctorate degree earns 25 points.
  • If you are studying in IT, accounting or engineering, consider completing a professional year. In addition to earning extra points, your application may be processed more quickly.
  • If English is your second language, develop your English language skills. Most international students will need to do the IELTS test of English language ability. The Commonwealth Government recently increased the minimum language skill requirements for some trade occupations. Because test results are valid for a two year period, the test can be completed well in advance of your application.
