I applied to an Australian university and got rejected because I do not meet the GTE requirements. I'm sure it was because I was honest with them and said I wanted to live in Australia after my studies.
Here is what the GTE requirement says:
An applicant needs to show they are coming to Australia temporarily to gain a quality education.
At the same time:
The GTE requirement is not designed to exclude those students who, after studying in Australia, go on to develop the skills required by the Australian labour market and apply to obtain permanent residence.
Does this mean that I can apply for work visa only after I work for some time in my home country (or some other country)? Is
student visa -> work visa forbidden?
