Exploring Pathways to PR: Leveraging Your Business Education for Permanent Residency in Australia

If you want to obtain permanent residency in Australia, it is not advisable to pursue a bachelor’s or master’s degree in business. After completing the course, you will be able to obtain a graduate work visa, though. The problem is that it doesn't prepare you for a lot of highly sought-after specialized jobs. We frequently engage with candidates who are enrolled in this course and then inquire about their alternatives for permanent residence.

These are some choices that we can suggest:

1. General Skilled Migration:

You can try to pass a skill test to become an organization and methods analyst or management consultant. To pass the skill assessment, though, you would need to work in your area for at least a year. You can increase your work experience in this profession while on a Graduate Work Visa by doing this.

2. Employer-sponsored initiative:

You might consider applying for a training visa or the regular employer-sponsored visa if you can locate a company to sponsor your visa. Please be aware, though, that in order to apply for a regular employer-sponsored visa, you must maintain the necessary qualifications in addition to two years of work experience. It will just take a year of relevant work experience to qualify for the training visa.

3. Enroll in a Program with Enhanced PR Opportunities and No Work Experience Needed for Skill Assessment Clearance.

Another choice is to look into taking a course that is truly in demand and doesn't require any post-qualification work experience if you are unable to obtain employment. Something like teaching, social work, or nursing is what we would advise. You can pass a skill assessment without any job experience and get a Graduate Diploma in just one year for a profession like teaching. Your PR pathway will open as a result. Not everyone who has recently completed their bachelor's degree wants to return to school. Nonetheless, this might be a wise choice if you want to raise your chances of receiving PR.


While pursuing a business education in Australia may provide some avenues for temporary visas, it may not necessarily lead to a direct path to permanent residency. However, exploring alternative pathways such as General Skilled Migration or Employer-sponsored initiatives can significantly enhance your prospects. Additionally, considering programs with enhanced PR opportunities and no work experience requirements for skill assessment can also open doors to securing permanent residency in Australia.
