Asia Pacific group has been very helpful for me from student visa extension to get regional sponsored. They have been proactive about the documentation and had explained me the importance of all the documents. They have always treated me professionally and answered all my queries at all times.

The Professional Year in Engineering has been developed by Engineering Education Australia (EEA) and the professional component is delivered by EEA. The program provides with membership of Engineers Australia and access to the Engineers Australia learning platform.

The reason for the development of this course is to provide a solution to the limited number of skilled professionals in Australia and increase the number of employable international students by increasing their expertise and skill-set and giving them the opportunity to obtain field training.

It is a 44-week course which includes 32 weeks of coursework and 12 weeks of internship.

One of the top benefits of completing a Professional Year Program is that the graduate is eligible to receive five (5) extra points on the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) 'points test' when applying for a Skilled Independent (subclass 189) visa.


Professions in Engineering are in high demand as they are listed in Skilled Occupations List (SOL) and Consolidated Sponsored Occupations List (CSOL). Some of the professions are Civil Engineers, Materials Engineers, Mechanical Engineers, Plant Engineers, Electrical Engineers, and Telecommunications Engineers. The procedure for securing Permanent Resident status includes an assessment procedure by a recognized authority mandated for work sponsorship or for migration purpose.

Professional Year Program is officially recognized by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) and enhances the employability of graduate international students thus improving the chances of securing Permanent Resident status.
