Course Description

Migration LawThe Graduate Certificate in Australian Migration Law and Practice is a prescribed qualification leading to registration as a Registered Migration Agent.

This course will expose you to real-life migration problems and improve your practical, problem-solving and interpersonal skills, enabling you to function effectively in the important and challenging role of a Migration Agent.

If you’re entering the legal profession, this course provides important knowledge and grounding in this highly specialised, dynamic and complex area of law.

You will learn about the fundamentals of Australian migration law, relevant legislation and policy, and the general concepts of migration practice. You will also investigate the visa application process, as well as the role and ethical responsibilities of Registered Migration Agents. In addition to theoretical knowledge, you will gain skills needed by Registered Migration Agents such as how to prepare visa applications and submissions for review.

 

This course is recognised by the Office of the Migration Agents Registration Authority (MARA) as the prescribed entry-level training course leading to registration as a Migration Agent. However, it is also important that intending agents check on other registration requirements as determined by the MARA (visit www.mara.gov.au). This course has also been approved by the MARA for Continuing Professional development (CPD) for existing Migration Agents.

Upon completion, this qualification meets the prescribed knowledge requirements for registration with the Office of the Migration Agents Registration Authority (MARA) as a ‘Registered Migration Agent’. This allows the applicant to provide immigration assistance, either for a fee or for non-commercial purposes. It might also enhance employment prospects in the legal, accounting or human resources professions. Our graduates have gone on to work for established migration advice practices, law firms, employment recruitment agencies, firms of chartered accountants, community legal centres, the Department of Immigration and Border Protection and private practice.
