If you decide to find a job overseas
Wanna study further?
Not ready yet to leave your student years and start working? No worries, we’ve also been there. You can stay in Australia and study further or embark on another field of study. Before making this decision, check whether your visa allows this or if you need to apply for a new one. If you completed a Bachelor’s, Master’s or Doctoral degree, you could be eligible for the Post-Study Work stream of the Temporary Graduate (subclass 485) visa.
Refer to the Department of Home Affairs to find out what your options are.
Preparing to return home
Homesick? We feel you. Once you’ve finished your degree you might be eager to head home to see your friends and family. There are some important things to do before you leave Australia:
- Work out how to get your stuff back home.
- Get any additional exam results which are not part of your degree.
- Get back the security bond from your rent.
Join alumni organisations
Many institutions run information seminars with advice on returning home and adjusting to life outside of Australia. Ask your international student support staff if they organize something like that.
Staying in touch through alumni groups
With more than half a million international students from 192 countries, we’re sure you’ll make loads of new friends from all around the world. There’s no better way to stay in touch with your former groupmates than through alumni associations.
Wherever your after-university path leads, joining an alumni group from your institution can help you down the track. You can find and join alumni associations in Australia to connect with the people from the course you studied, or other students from your country. Most groups and clubs are online, so it is easy to participate in all their events.
Joining an alumni group will help you:
- Kickstart your career: Fellow alumni who work in your field can be a great resource when you are just starting out with your career. They can provide you with some insider information from your industry.
- Keep in contact: Regular social events allow you to stay in touch even as you and your former classmates start new chapters in your lives.
- Get the support you need: Family and friends are always there for you, but an alumni network is full of people who have share similar experiences and can therefore support you.
- Give back: Alumni groups give an opportunity of mentoring former and current students. You can use your experience and contacts to help other students navigate through life and study in Australia.
