Overstaying my student visa

Hello guys! Need some advice.

I was on a student visa in Australia for my bachelor's. I, unfortunately, overstayed my student visa due to being misadvised by a migration agent.
My timeline is as follows:

- completed bachelors of commerce on 3rd September 2020
- Conferral date 24 September 2020
- Student Visa expired on 30th September 2020
- Applied for BVE on 1st October 2020
- BVE granted on 9th October 2020 till 20th November 2020
- Departed Australia on 14th November 2020

So technically I was unlawful for 9 days and overstayed for 9 days. Due to recent amendments, it seems like I can apply for a 485 visa offshore.

Will I face any potential issues with immigration?
Should I just forget Australia and maybe got for post-graduation in maybe Canada or UK?

Did your BVE come back and say you can no longer return? If not, I don’t see a reason why you can’t apply for a new visa.

Was your agent a registered migration agent?

Graduates who held a student visa will be eligible to apply for a post-study work visa outside Australia if they are unable to return due to COVID-19.

Perhaps you should consult your agent, or one of the registered migration agents who posts on this forum, to see what might be done to retrieve your situation.
