Hi! Need help URGENTLY!!! I'm an international student graduating this year July 2019. I'm looking to get the 485 TR visa, followed by the 186 employer-nominated visa. I need advice on the Australian Study Requirement. I understand the ASR requires 2 years/92 weeks of study, and I'm unclear even after several calls to the DHA. Here's my case: - The 3-year course I am doing is 156 weeks of study (based on CRICOS). - I transferred to Australia midway through, so instead of 3 years I spend 2 years here. So 2/3 years x 156 weeks = 104 weeks. - A full 2-years/104 weeks consists of 4 semesters, each semester with 4 units = 16 units (full 3 years/156 weeks would = 24 units). So 16/24 units x 156 weeks = 104 weeks. Now the thing is, I did 13 units instead of 16 units. And 13/24 units x 156 weeks = 84 weeks which is under the 92 week requirement. I would need to do 2 more units to satisfy the ASR (15/24 units x 156 weeks = 97.5 weeks). I eventually concluded with some options I'm exploring: Option 1- IF I don't fulfil the ASR and I need to do 2 more units? Is there a chance I can apply for exceptions (due to reasons below)? On one call to the DHA, I was advised to submit my visa 485 application with an agent and cite my case, and that the case officer may exempt from the ASR. Things to note: 1) I will be completing my degree July 2019. Adding 2 units would be absolutely pointless in my degree. It just doesn't seem to make much sense, costing so much time and money. Option 2- IF I don't fulfil the ASR and I need to do 2 more units? Is there a chance there is a different visa route I could take does not require the ASR? I am interning with an employer as an accountant who's looking to take me on full time and most likely sponsor my visa. On one call to the DHA, I was told about TR visa 482 (that did not require ASR) and recommended to go through visa 482 and then 186 for a ASR-free employer-nominated route. But upon reading online, it seems like visa 482 requires 2 years prior working experience (which I may need some clarification on how the visa works and if I may be eligible!) Option 3- I do the 2 units because I have no better alternatives. Perhaps I can do a professional year? At least I would gain 5 points while working to meet the ASR. Exploring study options that may be more useful or cheaper as well, such as taking 2 easy-pass units up in a low-cost registered institution. Really need some advice as DHA calls have been pretty contradicting and I'm really confused! Please let me know if there are other options I could explore.
Hi! HELP please! Perhaps anyone one of you might be able to help me find some answers ? I am an International Student in AU and before my student visa lapses, I plan to lodge for a temporary Graduate Work visa 485. This type of visa takes 12 long months to process (from DIBP website). A bridging visa will be granted so you can lawfully stay in AU while waiting for your next substantive visa. 1). Can you work while under a Bridging Visa? Full-time or Part-time? 2). Will my kids be allowed to study under a bridging visa? thank you!
Hi I would like to ask the questions: Now, I am on-bridging subclass 485 visa (over 6 months). I did the 2 years study in Australia and got positive assessment from ACS. However, I expecting my visa will get refuse because the IELTS result I submitted is not 6 bands in each components. One of my friend got refused in same issues. However, my partner still under student visa and just finished her 2 years study. She just got IELTS 6 bands in each component and got positive assessment from ACS. I believe that she are eligible to apply visa subclass 485 or 489 (if get invitation). My questions are: 1) Can i join her visa when she applying the new visa (485 or 489) with my on-bridging status? 2) Can i withdrawn on-bridging subclass 485 and join her new visa (485 or 489)? Thanks..
