Silver Rated Courses

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).

Silver Rated Courses allow you to apply for full accreditation at the end of the course and apply for state nomination or the Skilled visa directly. These courses may also allow you to apply for a Graduate visa and work in Australia for 3 years.

The rating of a course is based on whether it allows you to be immediately accredited without needing to work in your occupation for 12-months.

To identify a Silver Rated Course specific to your personal circumstances we invite you to arrange a consultation with a VisAustralia expert.

Medium cost Courses

Silver Rated Courses include 2-year medium cost vocational diploma level courses taught by high quality government owned technical colleges or by private vocational institutes. Vocational courses focus on the development of specific technical and practical skills. The cost of these courses is significantly lower than the cost of a university-based degree.

The knowledge gained by completing a vocational diploma will be of immediate application in the workplace.

A Silver Rated vocational course may allow you to apply for a Graduate visa at the end of the course.
