VisAustralia has analysed different categories of course that result in the ability to apply for a Skilled visa. We have classified these as Gold Rated Courses, Silver Rated Courses, Bronze Rated Courses, and Lead Rate Courses (for those not interesting in migrating).
Gold Rated Courses are low cost 12-month courses that allow you to migrate after completing the course. You need to be accredited in an occupation in demand in Australia based on your existing overseas qualifications and work experience and meet state nomination policies at the end of your studies.
The rating of a course does not depend on the intrinsic nature of the course but arises from an analysis of your previous qualifications and work experience measured against the requirements of Australian migration policy.
To identify a Gold Rated Course specific to your personal circumstances we invite you to arrange a consultation with a VisAustralia expert.
Vocational diploma level courses run for 12 months and are taught at high quality government owned technical colleges or by private vocational institutes. These courses focus on the development of practical and technical and skills.
The knowledge gained by completing a vocational diploma will be of immediate assistance to you in the workplace.
The cost of these courses is significantly lower than the cost of a university-based post graduate diploma or undergraduate or master’s degree.
