Post Study Visa - Temporary Graduate Visa
As a student that is studying in Australia, you are eligible for a post-study visa – known as a Temporary Graduate Visa – in order to spend time in Australia to gain work experience and, if eligible, do a professional year program in order to gain points to put towards their Permanent Residency (PR) application.

How to use your post-study visa wisely
Both work experience and professional year programs will provide you with points which you can gain during your post-study visa period to improve your chances at receiving an invitation to apply for PR in Australia.
Currently – most students are eligible for a post study visa for a duration of at least 2 years.
We outline the duration of the post-study visa available based on your study below:
- Certificate / diploma level course: 2 years
- Bachelors Degree: 2 years
- Masters Degree: 3 years
- PhD / Doctoral Degree: 4 years
The minimum duration of 2 years is plenty to get your skills assessment done, gain some work experience and apply for PR – if you meet the eligibility criteria.

Working with Easy Education was an amazing experience. From the first consultaiton they explained very well what was required and how it could help shape my future in Australia. They helped me with the entire process, from university to the visa requirements.
