How to Pursue an MBA when Living Down Under

How to Pursue an MBA when Living Down Under

There are many reasons why you may decide to travel to and live in Australia. Whether you want to gain a new skill from working in the immigrant program that all newcomers to the country must complete, start a new life at the other side of the world or simply live in a warmer climate and meet new friends, moving down under is a popular decision amongst many people these days.

 

But, if you want to study, then there are several routes that may be available to you. Getting an MBA in Australia is a great idea, but it’s important to understand how to go about achieving this goal. Some options include:

 

#1. Study Online:

 

If you’ve just moved to Australia and are spending most of the time working on a farm or in the construction industry, you probably don’t have the time to attend college classes – and as a newcomer, you may not be allowed to just yet if you don’t have a student visa. Studying online is an ideal option as MBA distance learning UK gives you the opportunity to access course materials from a university back home whilst you travel, giving you a UK-based degree which can be preferred if you’re not considering staying down under forever. Online degree programs also tend to be more flexible and self-led, allowing you to work it around any jobs that you’ve taken on in Australia and give you the freedom to use your spare time either studying or exploring.

 

#2. Get a Student Visa:

 

If you want to study for your MBA in Australia and want to make sure that you are getting the full student experience, then the best option for you could be through a student visa. You will need to apply for a student visa to visit Australia for a full course of study. Before you can apply for a student visa you will need to demonstrate that you have been accepted to and enrolled in a course of study in Australia at a recognised educational institution and that you have the means to stay there for the duration of the course. This visa not only allows you to live and study in Australia but you can also bring family members along with you. You can apply for a student visa both before you arrive and after arriving in Australia.

 

#3. Through an Employer:

 

If you’re already working in the world of business and have accepted a job position in Australia, then you may be able to get onto an MBA program through your employer. If you’re already eligible to work in Australia for your employer and wish to improve your educational achievements whilst you are there then it’s worth talking to your employer to see if they can help. A student visa will last for up to five years, which is typically enough time for students to take an MBA course part-time alongside working full-time.

 

With internationally recognised qualifications, affordable tuition and plenty of flexibility, Australia is a great choice for those looking to gain an MBA.
