Our migration consultant shares the secrets to successfully study in Australia
An Australian immigration consultant licensed by the Australian Government has shared all the issues related to studying in Australia. You can see part 2 of this article to know the experience of applying for a Student visa. Also don’t skip to part 6 to learn how to increase your chances of settling down after graduation!
Australian migration study abroad route
Unlike international students in many other countries, international students in Australia are allowed to stay and work after graduation and move to a settlement when eligible. But this is not simply the result of holding a Student visa, but the result of a long process, including many other visa applications later.
Specifically, the route for you to study in Australia includes the following steps:
- Step 1: Apply for an Australian Student visa
Before applying for an Australian Student visa, you need to determine that your field of study is on the list of priority occupations in Australia. And of course, the state you want to study also needs a policy for students to stay, work and settle.
- Step 2: Apply for a Post-graduation visa
After completing your studies, you need to apply for a Graduate visa – Subclass 485. Holding this visa, you will be in Australia for 1.5 – 4 years to gain experience.
- Step 3: Apply for Australian Skilled visa
Finally, you need to apply for a temporary skilled visa to continue to stay in Australia to work and apply for a permanent skilled visa to settle down. The group of Australian skilled visa categories includes subclass 189, subclass 491, subclass 190, subclass 191, subclass 482, subclass 186, and subclass 494.
When you want to study in Australia, you can consider going with VEM – a place with the ability, experience, and knowledge to advise a study abroad route to settle down correctly from the beginning.
Because when you are alone or accompanied by an unqualified immigration consultant, you will most likely be forced to leave Australia after graduation!
The case of Mr. Vu Phong Dan Dang before becoming a client of VEM is a typical example.
More specifically, Mr. Dan spent 7 years studying, completing 2 Master’s programs in Australia, but still could not apply for a Skilled visa to settle down. The reason is that he was not guided on the path to studying in Australia right from the time he applied for a Student visa.
When the second Subclass 500 visa was about to expire, Mr. Dan asked VEM’s immigration specialist for help. The expert has consulted from the beginning a new study abroad journey in Australia, and dedicatedly guided on how to apply for a Skilled visa.
Thanks to that, Mr. Dan got his third Student visa and passed the skills assessment. In addition, currently, VEM is still following closely to support Mr. Dan to complete his application for a Subclass 189 visa for skilled migrants.
As an experienced person, Mr. Dan has a couple of messages for you about the importance of having an Australian study abroad program in place from the very beginning:
Is it easy or difficult to study in Australia?
Many people cannot fulfill their dream of studying in Australia because they do not meet the conditions to study in Australia. In addition, many people meet the conditions but choose to study a field that does not give priority to settlement. Or, they choose the right major but study in a state that does not have the policy to allow students to work and settle in Australia.
Therefore, the answer to the question: “Is it difficult to study in Australia?“ depends quite a lot on the study and preparation of international students.
And in fact, those who apply for a visa alone always face more obstacles than applicants with a reputable Australian study abroad consulting company.
If you want to use an Australian visa service, be sure to choose a trustworthy place. But where specifically? See “Australian Government advice on using the service” for the answer!

Ways to increase your chances of settling down after studying in Australia
To study in Australia, international students must follow the right route. Right now, based on the roadmap mentioned in part 1, VEM will share ways for you to increase your chances of studying in Australia and settling down!
The higher the level, the better
Most people who want to study in Australia have graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Australia. So to increase your chances of settling down, you should study higher (Master, even Ph.D.) to stand out and be prioritized.
STEM majors are always favored
The Australian Government always prioritizes immigration opportunities for people with STEM occupations (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics). If your industry is in this block, you will get up to 10 points on the immigration scale.
If you want to submit your own visa but don’t know how to apply for an Australian Student visa while studying STEM, make sure you know the secret to apply for an Australian student visa! Or, to save time and get dedicated support, you should consider using VEM’s service!

Studying in a suburban city
You will be added 5 points for the opportunity to study in Australia if you study in a place that is not regulated by Australia as a big city. Examples are Perth, Gold Coast, Newcastle, and Adelaide.
Work in Australia for as long as possible
The longer you work in Australia with a post-graduation visa, the more priority will be given to settlement. In particular, if you want to study in Australia in 2023, then you will have an advantage.
Because since January 20th, 2021, the Australian Temporary Graduate visa – Subclass 485 has allowed applicants to extend the visa once to stay in Australia for another 2 years.
If you want to know how to extend this visa, contact VEM for guidance from an immigration consultant!
Good level of English
If you want to stay in Australia after you graduate, you should try to get an IELTS score of 7.0 or higher. Because then, you will be added 10 immigration points. If you score 6.0 IELTS, you will “pass the parking round”, but no points will be awarded.
In case you need to increase your IELTS score to expand your opportunities to study in Australia, please refer to VEM’s English study abroad program.
