You should not make educational choices solely on the basis of hoping to achieve residency, as the program will continue to adapt to Australia’s economic needs. If you find that you need to study for further qualifications before applying for a permanent residency visa, you can apply for an 18 month temporary visa to extend your stay. In this case, you do not have to pass a points test but you must already have a recent Australian qualification as a result of at least two years of study.
