  • Top 9 Best Courses to Study in Australia for PR 2023

    Many international students plan to settle in Australia permanently as they find the country a safe, welcoming, and supportive place to live and study.

    Suppose you are one of those students considering settling in Australia and gaining permanent residency. In that case, you must first apply for a student visa, which allows you to study, live and work in Australia.

    After you complete two years of study in Australia, you are eligible for a postgraduate work visa. This visa allows you to work full-time and stay in Australia for 2 to 4 years.
