Australia is one of the top destinations for the students to pursue their higher education. No doubt the living standard and quality education attract many International students every year. But, at times, students get confused about which part of Australia they should study. Where you choose to study is a very major factor if you want to get a longer work visa based on graduation or in the future if you wish to apply for permanent or temporary residency.
Studying in the Regional area
- The competition for points is increasing and in that case, when you choose to study in the regional area it will give you additional points. Make sure when you wish to apply for the Student VISA Australia then take the help of the best migration agent as they are aware of the procedure and help you make the right decision.
- Choosing a place like Melbourne, Sydney, or Brisbane will only score 5 points after studying for 2 years.
- On the other hand, when you study in regional areas like South Australia, Western Australia, Sunshine Coast, or the Gold Coast then 5 additional points are given for regional study.
Graduate Visa 485Till now, whether you plan to study in a regional area or city, the benefit of the graduate visa (subclass 485) was the same. But, now with the new changes being implemented, it will help the students a lot.
