Study and work in Byron Bay … the Temporary Graduate visa

At BBMA, we are education agents as well as Registered Migration Agents. We know the student visa Australia legislation and – most importantly – which local courses meet the requirements for a Temporary Graduate visa upon graduation. There are only a few courses locally that meet the Australian Study Requirement and qualify you for the Temporary Graduate visa upon completion of your studies.

With minimum work experience requirements in place since March 2018, international students really need to make use of the Temporary Graduate visa to gain as much work experience as possible.

What visa do I need for a longer stay in Byron Bay?

I am often asked by people who don’t have an Australian partner how they can stay in Byron Bay for a few years or more.

International student fees in Australia can be prohibitively expensive. But in the above example, all course fees, insurance, medical exams, police clearances, student visa Australia application charges and Registered Migration Agent fees came to less than AUD$30,000 for this 3.5 year stay. As at 20 Sep 2018 AUD$30,000 is approximately £16,500 or €18,500 To learn more about this topic, please send us a...
