    More Migration Success Stories

    Student Visa

    Another Subclass 500 Student Granted

    Congratulations to our client and wish you all the best with your studies.


    - No show money
    - No English exam requirement
    - Client has a Bachelor degree in the Philippines
    - Courses in Australia are Diploma in Leadership and Management, and Advanced Diploma in Leadership and Management

    As previously explained in this forum, you do not have to study MBA or Masters in Australia if you have a Bachelor in the Philippines to be granted with Student Visa.

    Also, there are articles in other forums saying that Student visa applications with Advanced Diploma in Leader and Management as courses are being refused. It still depends on the presentation and argument in the visa application.

    About Rey Aquino LLB (Migration Lawyer)

    REY AQUINO - Migration Lawyer (LLB)
    Office of the Migration Agents Registration Authority

    MARA Number: 1279638

    Rey’s goal is simple:

    To share the feeling he experienced to others after receiving his Australian citizenship.

    Rey has been practicing migration law since September 2012 after becoming a Registered Migration Agent under the Office of Migration Agents Registration Authority. On 27 August 2018, Rey was then admitted as a Solicitor in Queensland. Due to the end of dual registration of Registered Migration Agents and Legal Practitioners on 22 March 2021, Rey is now regulated by Queensland Law Society.

    Rey’s road to Australian citizenship was not ‘smooth’ in the beginning. In 2000, Rey’s parent wanted to apply for Australian permanent residency through the business migration framework. Due to lack of guidance in Australia, Rey’s parent encountered an unregistered migration agent and this agent provided advice outside the migration law.

    This agent advised that Rey can apply for Student visa in Australia while holding a Visitor visa which was not allowed by the Department of Immigration and Australian Citizenship (DIAC at that time) during that period and while waiting for the result of the Business visa application of Rey’s family. As a result, Rey held a Bridging visa for a year in Australia and both applications for Student and Business visa were refused.

    After meeting a migration lawyer, Rey was advised to apply for Student visa outside of Australia and to study Accounting. Rey decided to follow the migration lawyer’s advice and completed his degree in Accounting at the University of Technology Sydney. This led to Rey’s obtaining his Australian permanent residency under the Skilled visa framework.

    With over 8 years of experience in migration law and personal dedication in this field, Rey has developed expertise in different visa applications, citizenship applications, applying for Ministerial Intervention, appeal matters to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal and Federal Circuit Court.

    In Rey’s free time, he enjoys spending time at the beach with his loving wife and kids or watching NBA games and interesting shows in Netflix.
