Top 5 Tips to Secure PR in Australia for International Students

by Arpita Shah Seo Executive

There is no dearth of international students in Australia who dream of living permanently here after completing their studies. Every year, thousands of students are permitted to come and study in Australia, but General Skilled Migration is an entirely different and a bit complicated process. It is run by the Department of Home Affairs and influenced by the Australian labour market needs.

GSM or General Skilled Migration depends much on your score in the Points Test. Truly speaking, the fact that you have studied in Australia doesn’t qualify your for GSM, but some other ways can help increase the chances of getting PR in Australia for international students. Let’s find out the ways to boost your score on the Point Test!

Improve Your English Skills

Candidates deemed as having English language skills that are ‘Superior’ (IELTS 8 or equivalent) or ‘Proficient’ (IELTS 7 or equivalent) attract more points- 20 and 10 points respectively.

Study in Regional Area

Students who have completed their studies of two years in a regional area are eligible for additional five points. The ones who have lived in a particular regional area for a period of minimum two years and worked full-time in that area for 12 months are eligible for a different visa type- the Skilled Regional Visa.

Complete a Professional Year Program

Professional Year Brisbane is a skill development program which combines formal learning and workplace experience. Once you have completed the PY program, you will be eligible for receiving five extra migration points. The PY programs run for 12 months and are available for accounting, engineering and IT graduates. 

Stay in the Country Even After Completing Your Degree

You can get more time to improve and enhance your English language skills and employment experience in Australia even after completing your degree by applying for an 18-month Temporary Graduate Visa. This will provide you with an opportunity to boost your score in the Points Test.

Climb the Qualification Ladder

You can choose to polish your skills and develop your knowledge by progressing to a more advanced qualification- for instance, moving on from a diploma to a bachelor degree. Diplomas attract 10 points, but bachelor degrees account for 15 and doctorate for 20 points.


So these are the five things that you can consider for boosting your migration points and securing PR in Australia. For more, you can contact an expert migration agent Melbourne at AECC Global.
