Australian Study Requirement for visa 175

Can anyone help me and explain the Australian Study Requirement?

It seems that I need to have studied for at least 2 years IN Australia

It is one of the basic eligibility requirement, so I need to have it right?

How does one actually fulfill this requirement if he/she is OUTSIDE of Australia and have never been in Australia???

Hi, I was reading this page to find out for you:

It's quite confusing and it's only at the bottom that they answer the question:
Skilled – Independent (Migrant) Visa (Subclass 175)

Course requirements
Each qualification that you have completed and are relying on to meet this requirement must:
- be either a degree (a bachelor or any higher degree), a diploma, an advanced diploma, or a trade qualification
- have been undertaken at an Australian educational institution in Australia
- have been conducted in English
- be registered on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS).

Uhhh... I'm sorry, but I'm still lost

It says it must have been undertaken at an Australian educational institution in Australia... how does one actually get a visa 175 then if they are outside of Australia...

Is this a catch 22 thing?

No, that's not it. To be eligible for the visa you must have at least 65 points from the points test. You get points for age, exeperience, qualifications, ect....
Here is the list of things which grant you points (if you meet the requirement):
Skilled – Independent (Migrant) Visa (Subclass 175)

There are no points awarded for things that are obligatory (health, character, skills assessment...you'll see them on the link I posted).

Having studied 2 years in Australia is not a requirement for the visa. If you have done the 2 years study in Aus (on the right course), you get extra points. If you haven't done the study, you don't get those points but it doesn't mean you'll fail the points test.

Oh, thank you very much!!!

I was confused by this line "Use the table below to assess your eligibility. You must meet all of the basic eligibility requirements and pass the points test.
" on that website.
