Second 485 Visa possible or not?

Hello Everyone,

I had an IT background with Bachelors in Computer Applications when I came for a Diploma in Graphic Design in 2008. Did not like the course and took a 2 year diploma in Hospitality and then was granted 485 visa.

Now I have gone back to my IT field and am on student visa doing my Masters in Information Systems.

I heard I can not get 485 again after my study. Is that true.....are there any exceptions??

ACS requires professional year or 1 year experience for assessment. Professional year can be done only after the completion of the study during 485 visa.

My migration agent says my only option is to go for another student visa after my current student visa expires and look for a job during that period.

Do I have any other options??

Can I still apply for 485 and can it be granted on discretionary basis??

Any help or advice appreciated.
