State nomination for Australian PR without IELTS and ‘work experience’ is now possible

South Australia has announced exemptions from English language requirements and work experience to a particular category of state nomination applicants.

Under the new scheme, high performing international graduates from public universities in South Australia, will be able to claim these exemptions, besides ‘financial requirement waiver’.

Such applicants will also have access to a more extensive list of occupations on either the State OccupationList or the Supplementary Skilled List.

However, applicants will still be required to meet the work experience and English language proficiency required for the skills assessment and registration.

To qualify to apply as a high performing graduate, an applicant is requited to be currently residing in South Australia. In addition, applicants must have completed one of the following qualifications at a South Australian public university in the last two years with the required Grade Point Average.

  • Ph.D. or Masters by Research.
  • GPA of 6.0 or above in a Masters by Coursework degree (following completion of a Bachelor degree in South Australia).
  • First Class Honours in a dedicated Honours year (following completion of a Bachelor degree in South Australia).
  • GPA of 6.0 or above in a Bachelor degree.
