No further stay?

Hi,

I've just completed my masters and I am thinking of doing a project management course.

The project management course is a 38 weeks course. I've been advised to apply for a 572 visa. I am currently on a 573 visa.

My friend has applied for the 572 visa, and he got imposed with a NFS. He was told that its because he came under assesment level 4 (he is from India) and also because the course is less than 10 months.

I am from Malaysia, and the page at on IMMI shows that I am assesment level 1.

My question is, am I also at risk to get a NFS imposed?

Hi,

This is all I could find on the matter:

Australian Immigration Fact Sheet 50. Overseas Students in Australia
No extension of stay
Most Assessment Level 3 and all Assessment Level 4 students (except those in the Schools sector) undertaking a course or courses of 10 months duration or less, are subject to a 'no further stay' condition. This condition generally prevents students from extending their stay in Australia, although they may apply for Graduate Skilled Temporary (subclass 485) visa or a student visa with permission to work.

If an Assessment Level 3 student provides evidence of funds to cover a further 12-month stay, the ‘no further stay’ condition is no longer mandatory.

Students who are sponsored by the Commonwealth of Australia or the government of their home country may also be subject to a 'no further stay' condition. They will only be able to extend their studies in Australia if the sponsoring government gives written consent.

I think you might be ok, being level 1, however they might take into account time already spent in Australia. Yes, give them a call to see what they say.
