Webinar Wednesday 9 August: Understanding student visas

Join us as we explore the ins and outs of student visas in Australia.

As talent mobility professionals grapple with finding the right talent, many are turning to students and working holiday makers as a means of developing talent and recruiting the skills they need.

In this session we’ll hear from Visa Executive Director Sarah Loch-Wilkinson and Solicitor Christina Lien as they discuss:

  • Australia’s student visa program
  • Take you through their work restrictions, and
  • Discuss options available for employers

Followed by Q&A.

If you have ever had questions about the Australian student visa regime, have wondered how your company might use student visas to support its graduate program or are keen to understand the implications of students applying for their own visas as compared to your company, then this masterclass is for you.

This free event is open to TEMi Talent members and non-members.
