With this visa, you gain unrestricted work rights, allowing you to work full-time, part-time, or casually during your stay in Australia. This can be invaluable for gaining work experience in your field of study.

The Post-Study Work Visa gives you the chance to explore Australia, its culture, and its job market. It’s an excellent opportunity to decide whether you want to pursue further studies or build a career in Australia.
