A Professional Year Program could be the head-start you’re looking for

You’ve gained an Australian qualification in Engineering / IT / Accounting and now you’re looking at what your next move is going to be.

That’s where a Professional Year Program can help. It is a structured professional development program with Australian companies, designed to help international students develop industry-specific skills through study and work experience, preparing them for professional careers in the Australian workforce.

Over 44 weeks, you’ll learn all the skills you need to get started as an industry professional, and gain valuable work experience in an Australian company through an internship.

  • Upon completion, you would be eligible to receive five extra points on the Department of Home Affairs (DHA) ‘points test’ when applying for a Skilled Independent (subclass 189) visa.
