Utilising study as a pathway to residency?
Whilst the student visa program exists to allow individuals and their families to undertake study in Australia on a temporary basis, it can also provide a potential pathway to residency under the General Skilled Migration (GSM) program or other visas.
Whilst our services are primarily focussed on assisting you with obtaining a visa, and outlining any potential pathways to Australia, we also work with Australian based Education Agents who will find the right course for you.
