My girl friend and I have already applied for 885 PR visa onshore last week .

She is primary applicant and Im second applicant

I am currently holding a student visa until March 2012 which mean I will be granted a Bridging Visa A when the student visa held expires.


I applied for a Postgraduate diploma of Commerce course and Master of Commerce. When the time I applied for Master of Commerce. Australia University only offers me one year postgraduate diploma of commerce course with condition and require me to achieve average 65% result in order to get a Master offer later.

However, I already finished one year postgraduate diploma of commerce last end of year. I decided to get into industry since I do not have working experience at all, therefore my postgraduate diploma course average was not very high. I decided to get some working experience first then back to University again.


I would like to get some valuable advices from your professional view and I hope you could point me out to the correct direction for my future in Australia.


There are summarized of my main questions as below:


1. My concern is I would like to work as a full time and part time study. However, I am still holding a student visa until 2012 and I am only allowed to work not greater than 20 hours.


2. Is that possible to change my student visa expire date early without canceling my student visa since I have completed my postgraduate diploma course. I think I should have a choice to choose whether to continue for further study or not.


3. As I heard from my agent I will be granted a bridging E visa when I cancel my student visa. Is that true? In this case, How can I get a bridging A visa directly?


Thanks for anyone who had replied

You are spinning such a web there, I'll not even enter for fear of getting tangled.
The basics of a student visa are there is a studying expectation and you default on that you can expect your visa to be cancelled and without being eligible for another visa you will be expected to leave Australia.
The student visas are not at all there to provide for people to work here other than the 20 hours/week.
Stuff around with the regulations and you could find yourself on a trip out of Australia.

It's the same deal. you have a student visa and there are conditions to maintaining it.
Stuff around as though you have a say in what you want to do and the visa can be withdrawn.
It is not up to you to decide on working fulltime and studying parttime and the visa is for it to be the other way around as you know, so very specifically for you:
1. You can continue your study in accordance to as approved for the visa and work up to 20 hours per week whilst studying.
2. You may think you shoulkd have a choice and you do, comply with the visa or have it cancelled and leave Australia.
3. BVAs are only for when one has been eligible to apply for a further visa and their existing visa expires and they await determination on the new visa application.
