Are you an international student who is currently in Australia and are thinking about what to do next? Or perhaps you are offshore and are considering studying here? Would you like some help from an expert migration agent Henley Beach to steer you through the complex world that is migration law, to help you to achieve your migration goals? Well, we are glad to say that you have come to the right place!
PAX Migration Australia agents are trained and experienced professionals in migration law in Australia, and as part of our broad service offering, we not only help with the initial student visa application, but we also provide ongoing support for international students in Adelaide, South Australia.
We have been doing this a long time and based on our extensive training and experience in the industry, we always keep our eye to the future, looking forward at the steps ahead. This enables us to formulate tailored advice with long-term outcomes in mind. Many student visa holders in Australia go on to apply for further visas, such as a Graduate or Skilled visa, and ultimately become permanent residents. In other cases, students visiting our shores are simply doing so to gain a unique experience combining study, travel, and limited work rights in Australia, before being on their way to their next destination as they explore other overseas opportunities. Or they head back home, bringing with them their newly acquired qualifications to build a better life for themselves and their families.
We Are Your Partner On This Journey
Whatever your personal circumstances and goals may be, immigration agent Henley Beach can help you on your way by planning a pathway to reach your goals, in the best and most effective way possible. And given the fast-changing nature of the migration system in Australia, we keep on top of your case at all times, working with you to adjust the original plan if new laws, regulations and/or policy is enacted which may affect the original pathway.
We don’t just complete each job and then sit on our hands; we are proactive, and always on our toes, looking forward and revisiting each client’s case to ensure any changes are clearly communicated and plans adjusted where required. But you always remain in the drivers seat, we just help you to steer the wheel by providing advice on where you can go, and the potential ramifications of each turn, so that you can make an informed choice about where you want to go.
This is your journey. And we are your partner, always here by your side, to provide advice and support as you embark on what can be a complicated and stressful experience. Let us take the pain out of your hands so that you can focus on the good stuff; the invaluable experience of studying in Australia as an international student, gaining a world-class qualification, travelling around this unique nation, which offers something for everyone.
Natural wonders and the environment provide endless hours of viewing pleasure; beaches, national parks, deserts, wide-sweeping landscapes, the outback, reefs, and rainforests are just some of the unique attractions for you to explore. Australia is a nation of contrasts, also offering a rich cultural experience in dining, museums, art galleries and the like in cosmopolitan cities around the nation. It is also a melting pot of cultures and languages from every corner of the globe. As an international student, not only will you have the opportunity to experience Australia and its people, but meet other students from all around the world, forming lifelong friendships and sharing experiences with other keen-eyed students who, like you, are in search of a unique and enriching experience in Australia. You can venture into the various states and territories across the country, without limitation, so that you can experience this nation of contrasts for yourself. One day you may be exploring Uluru in the Northern Territory and the next, dining in cosmopolitan Adelaide in South Australia. There is something for everyone.
You can also get a taste of what its like to live and work in Australia, with a student visa being able to be granted for up to a period of five years (depending on the length of your course/s), and the ability to work (subject to certain restrictions on work hours and when you can work).
What International Student Services Do We Offer?
Our service extends beyond the initial student visa application stage. We also provide ongoing support for international students in Adelaide.
Here is how we can help.
Local Support For International Students
We are with you every step of the way, providing tailored local International Student services to our student clients.
It is common for many international students in Australia to apply for a Temporary Graduate visa at the completion of study. This pathway is designed to lead to a skilled visa and ultimately, results in either extending your stay in Australia with further temporary visa options, or ultimately, achieving permanent residence.
We are experts in graduate visas and international student pathways to skilled visas. We keep our eye on the ball, always thinking ahead to the next steps. And this includes helping to ensure that you are eligible for a Graduate visa and the opportunities that this brings.
What Is A Temporary Graduate Visa?
A Subclass 485 Temporary Graduate Visa can be a good option for recent international graduates who have completed study in Australia. It is a temporary visa consisting of two streams, a Graduate Workstream and a Post-Study Workstream. The visa term can range from between 18 months to 4 years, depending on which stream you apply under, and your qualification.
As a graduate visa holder, you can work, study and travel in and out of Australia on an unrestricted basis for the duration of the visa term. The work rights in particular can be very beneficial for applicants intending to apply for a skilled visa at some stage in the future. Post-qualification work experience can be a key element of a skilled visa application and for skill assessment purposes (which can be a requirement to qualify for certain skilled visas). For points-tested skilled visas, you will receive more points for skilled work experience in Australia than for overseas experience, thus helping you to accumulate the required points score to be eligible to apply, or to improve your chances of a successful result.
And if you’re an international student who is unsure if you will qualify for permanent residence in Australia, you can rest assured that our expert immigration knowledge ensures you get the best advice about your permanent residency pathway.
We Can Help You Find That Important First Job After Graduation
Given the highly competitive job market, you need every advantage you can get to secure employment in Australia as a student visa graduate.
We can help you to prepare an effective and well-designed resume and cover letter. We also assist with preparing for interviews and provide you with introductions to potential employers.
Settlement, Orientation And Community
Settling into a new country and a new university can be daunting. We can take care of as much or as little of your settlement as you like. We can help with accommodation, orientation and registrations.
And we know the importance of support groups for wellbeing and success. To assist, we offer social events and student support networks to ensure our student clients settle in comfortably to their new home. Feeling at ease will maximise your chances of having an effective and successful study experience in Australia.
We Are Local
Australia’s education system can be very different from other countries, and not what you are used to in your home country. It is important to ensure that you are well informed about what it means to study at an Australian education institution, so that you are prepared for what you can expect.
We have in-depth knowledge and experience of Australia’s education system, both as students and as teachers. Our director, Christina Katsouri-Paxinos, has worked in the migration industry for more than 15 years, having assisted migrants and international students as a migration agent, a coordinator of various government programs, a counsellor and an English language teacher at a G8 University.
When settling into a new country and embarking on a new journey like this, the less surprises the better. Get that peace of mind by being prepared for what is to come.
But enrolling in a course is only the start; passing and achieving strong grades are important to maximise your job prospects for when you graduate.
We are qualified counsellors and know what it takes to pass Australian courses. We also know what Australian employers are looking for in graduates from Australian universities.
Where To From Here?
As you can see, studying in Australia involves a lot more than just simply applying for the initial Student Visa. The advice, assistance, and support that we offer as part of our service to student clients is invaluable in making your experience in Australia as effective and successful as possible. Although it is important that you enjoy your student experience and gain as much as you can as an international student in Australia, with forward planning, you can help maximise your chances of achieving your longer-term goals too. Don’t miss these opportunities by leaving it to chance. Planning is the name of the game when it comes to migration.
