Smile Subclass 476 (Recognized graduate visa) query

So I'm applying for Subclass 476 (Recognized graduate visa) from Pakistan. I have a Masters degree in Industrial Engineering from Oregon State University, USA.
I have the following questions:

1. My husband is on a student visa studying in Australia, and he will graduate in November 2016. The online application form had a section where you have to give details of your and your partner's visits abroad exceeding 12 months. Since my husband is currently in Australia what dates should I write for his visit as 'currently there' is not an option given?

2. Once I get this visa and my husband graduates, can he also get this visa as my partner?

When filling in dates and the person is currently there just put the last date as "totday's" date (the date you are filling out the form.

Your husband can apply as the secondary applicant after he graduates. However I suggest that you seek advice from an experienced Registered Migration Agent as it may be advantageous for him to apply for a post-study 485 with you as the secondary applicant if he is eligible to do that. The 476 is an 18 month visa where as the 485 post study visa is a 2 year visa.
