You have to apply for Visa 476 within 2 years of graduating from university but the processing times as shown on the website are:
- 75% of applications: 15 months
- 90% of applications: 17 months
So given the long wait my plan would be to do a graduate scheme in the UK (after I earn my Masters degree) and apply during it for the visa. However, most grad schemes are 2 years long so if my visa got accepted very quickly this wouldn't be ideal if I had to quit that midway through and move across to Aus shortly after approval.
So when you're approved what is the time frame in which you must move to Australia?
I'm from the UK, age 22 and will be graduating with an MEng just for some info.
