Post-graduate career opportunity

You can remain in Australia from 2 to 4 years after your graduation with the Post-Study Work Visa subclass 485*


For those who are interested in applying for a Post-Study Work - Temporary Graduate visa (subclass 485) to stay and work in Australia temporarily after you have finished your studies, please note that one of the requirements from Australian government is that “you completed your course as a result of at least two academic years of full-time study (92 weeks)” as a full fee paying student in Australia (which is equivalent to 192 RMIT credit points). Therefore, please check your remaining credits if you plan to apply for this type of visa upon completion of your studies in Melbourne.
