Graduate Stream Visa is easier than ever to get.  That’s because you now do NOT need to nominate an occupation and that means you do NOT need any skills assessment.

That is great news for all students of very general qualifications which do not relate directly to a particular occupation. These such as leadership and management and business principles, sustainability and  strategic planning.

Oz Migration Services can help you now with your Temporary Graduate Visa using the Graduate Stream – or the Post Study Stream

Graduate Stream Visa

Temporary Graduate visas are for international students who hold or recently held a student visa and have finished their Australian course. There are two streams – the Graduate Work stream visa and the Post-Study Work stream visa . For both you must have completed your Australian study requirement.

The Post-Study Work stream applies to students with a certain degree qualification or qualifications, from an Australian university or non-university education   CRICOS registered provider.

The new changes are for the Graduate Work stream visa relating to  those studying for vocational qualifications –   especially trade qualifications  – at diploma level and below.

The amending regulations  remove the need  under the Graduate Work stream to:

  • Nominate an occupation,

  • Have a  qualification closely related to the applicant’s nominated skilled occupation,

  • Evidence of applying for a skill assessment at the time of applying basic work experience also required in some situations, oe

  • Obtain a  skill assessment.


The changes will open the Graduate Work stream to many more international students. Oz Migration Services considers the changes will particularly benefit students  gaining a qualification not directly related to a specific occupation, such as general management or leadership or business strategy etc  and below degree level.

But the changes only apply till  30 June 2023.
