Default Visa 189 Engineer - Studying medicine

Hello

A quick question for you all:

I applied to Visa 189 as a Canadian engineer and recently got an invitation. I am a bit hesitant to put information about my enrollment at a medical school here (my new path). My thought process is that since I received the invitation for a "skilled migration", will they frown upon someone who is supposed to come into Australia with a supposed intention to work as an engineer?

Thank you for your comments.

Have you already enrolled ?

Then you should not hide the fact
Moreover you have to give evidence only till the date you were invited
Generally what you do after that date does not affect the processing of the grant

I donít think the department would have a problem if you decide to hone your skills before you plunge into the Australian work market

Cheers

Isn't the 189 intended to recruit foreign trained engineers? I'm uncertain how they would evaluate someone after inviting an individual only to find out that they will no longer practice as one but pursue some other profession.

Logically thinking you are correct, but Immigration is all about law

You are not breaking any law or rules or even bending them when you decide to study

After all in my view you become more qualified to contribute to the economy then you are today

It maybe better to consult a Mara agent and clear your doubts
Iscah, comes to mind , in case you want to go that route, but please do your own due diligence

Cheers
