At the start of every financial year, the Department of Home Affairs in Australia provides a list of occupations in demand. While the circumstances of every student are different and will need to be individually assessed, these courses can serve as a guide to finding a pathway to permanent residency.
In order to live and work in Australia on a permanent resident visa (PR), there are various options for candidates. Three of the most common pathways are:
Employer Nomination Scheme
Skilled Migration Program
Students aiming to settle in Australia permanently should consider selecting the right course which eventually will lead to a profession in demand in the coming years. All the qualifications and work experience need to be assessed by relevant bodies in order to be considered as relevant to the chosen occupation.
To provide you with examples, here are some of the sought-after courses with strong PR prospects:
Nursing and medical courses
Education and teaching
Cookery, patisserie and hospitality
Computer and information technology (IT)
Building and construction
This list is only a guide and no guarantee of permanent residency. To find out more and get assistance with the specifics of your situation, please get in touch. Contact our student support team member .
