[Expert Tip] 2-Year Study Requirement Explained


You might already know that to apply for visas such as the Temporary Graduate visa, you need to have met the 2-Year Australian Study Requirement. How exactly do you know if you have met this requirement?

To meet this requirement, you need to have studied for 92 weeks, that is, per the CRICOS registration of the courses.

What does that mean?

It is NOT as simple as just calculating the number of actual weeks you studied.

For example, if your course is registered with CRICOS for only 78 weeks, but you took 92 weeks to complete the course, that course will still only count for 78 weeks towards meeting the Australian study requirement.

Check how many weeks your course counts towards here: http://cricos.education.gov.au/Course/CourseSearch.aspx

Your studies must also have been completed over 16 calendar months or more.

In the cases where you have completed 2 or more courses, changed schools, failed subjects, it’s important to be extra careful when calculating this.

If you are still unsure about how to calculate this, feel free to send us a message and we’ll help you out!
