WHAT IS A PROFESSIONAL COURSE?
Vocational courses in Australia, called VET (Vocational Education and Training), are training courses offered by accredited Australian educational bodies. They have strong practical content and are oriented to train you for a specific profession.
VET courses are the best choice for those who want to find a job in Australia in specific professional sectors.

Many jobs around Australia require a level of further education to be considered for the role.
In some cases, a VET course is a requirement that may be necessary to undertake an immigration journey to Australia.
We work with many Australian schools to offer you the most suitable course to enhance your professional profile and get the best out of the world of work.

Vocational Education and Training (VET)
However, if your English is already great and you want to focus on a path that can help you with your work, you can opt for a professional course (or VET). VET is a training course with strong practical content that was created with the aim of preparing for a specific profession. There are VET courses for almost all employment sectors, so it won’t be difficult to find a route that is in line with your area of interest.
There are a number of VET courses that only take three months to complete. These short-term courses are a great option for students looking to earn credit towards a degree or experience what it’s like to study abroad in Australia.
University or Post-Graduate Study
There is also the possibility of attending a university or post-graduate course in Australia. This choice can be very demanding, in bureaucratic, organisational and financial terms, as university is very expensive in Australia. Just remember, if it’s easy to dream it, it’s easy to live it; university is definitely an option for international students.
Choosing the Correct Visa
Any course you choose to study in Australia requires a visa. The Working Holiday Visa allows you to study and follow a course for four months and work in the meantime, without any limit to weekly hours.
To undertake a full-time course, the Australian government requires you to have a Student Visa. This special visa allows you to stay in Australia for the duration of your coursework, and to work part-time during the course and full-time during breaks. Student Visas are valid for the duration of a course and can even be extended for up to five years.
