some question though about applying online

1. Was the form you used by online application is 1221 and 80? So the 1276 form basically for those who use paper application? We dont need to fill 1276 via online then?

2. Even so the scanned originals dont need to be certified, is it still need to be translated into English?

I see some differences of required documents in online application compared to via post. Since i think the online lodgement correlate with a shorter time period of processing (people said take 1-2 months) rather than paper/courier lodgement (up to 7 months, the official site said so). However i dont have any passport yet so i couldnt see the whole documents that are needed in online lodgement.

Hi Shel,

Thanks for the reply and the link. I assure you that I've spent a considerable good amount of time browsing through immi.gov.au and collecting essential infos before I began posting questions in the thread.
Anyway back to the question, what I meant to ask was.. given the list of the recognised institutes for South East Asia region, will other equally recognised university (but not listed on the list in immi.gov.au) from a same country of origin (in this case Malaysia), by any chance be given the same recognition by Australian as well?
If it is so, it would save heaps of hassle that I presume many of us would have to go through (considering point based visas) just for gainning some Australian work experience..

No I'm afraid not, only graduates of the universities listed are eligible for this visa. You are able to go for degree for assessment for a skilled visa though.

Thanks for a very quick reply!
That said, my obvious option would be to go for a 189/190 visa with a +ve Skills Assessment in hand right?

Thanks again..

Yes if you meet the points requirement, have the required IELTS score and a positive skills assessment make an expression of intrest. The more points you have and if you have state sponsorship the more quickly you will get an invite to apply.

Default Top universitities not in

I have a very important question here. I want to apply for this subclass visa 476 but my university is not in. Why is that Cambridge and Cardiff University not in when it is one of the leading engineering universities in the UK? Thanks

Because Australia must not recognise it as such and its their decision and their rules I'm afraid.

Hello,

I completed an Engineering degree from the university
listed in the recognised oversea institutions. My graduation date was 25
March 2010 which just passed 2 years time. In this visa requirements, it is
written as "This visa is for you if you completed an Engineering degree at
a recognised overseas institution in the last two years." Could you please
advise me if I am still eligible for applying this visa?

Unfortunately, you are no longer eligible. You would have needed to apply for this visa within 2 years of the date of your graduation.

You could still apply for another skilled visa, provided that you meet the eligibility requirements of that particular visa class.
