Study in Australia: Great Work Opportunities
International students have the option to temporarily work in Australia after their course. The Temporary Graduate Visa (subclass 485) facilitates this. This visa allows students from both the Graduate Work Stream as well as the Post Study Work Stream. The Graduate Work Stream Visa, granted for 18 months, is only issued to international students who complete their education in Australia in areas which are in demand in the Australian labour market. For this visa, the aspirant must have completed the course and should have earned a degree, diploma or a trade qualification. The Post Study Work Stream visa is granted for two, three or four years depending on the educational qualifications. The eligibility qualification for this visa is a Bachelor's, Master's or a PhD degree.
Work options are also available for current students. Student visas permit the students to work for 40 hours every two weeks during the course duration and unrestricted hours during course breaks. Students can work in the retail, hospital, tourism, agriculture, sales and telemarketing sectors in clerical roles or engage in tutoring.
Employees working in Australia, including international students, have some basic rights at work such as minimum wage, challenge of unfair dismissal from the job, breaks and a healthy and safe work environment.

First of, you need to remember that Australia has the lowest conversion rate to residency programmes and even lesser for surgical specialisations. Now if you have completed your MBBS in India, you will have to appear for AMC exam and clear the exam. Then you have to pursue an internship for atleast 2-3 years before you become eligibile for a Residency programme. It ideally takes 4-5 years to get into a residency programme in Australia. The fees might vary from 12,000-15,000 Australian Dollars. And this might change periodically.
