Applying for Student Visa while in Sydney

Hi po, gusto ko lang po sana humingi ng advice sa situation ko.

Working po ako sa Sydney ngayon on a temporary visa. Ang problem ko po ay mag eexpire na siya in two months (September).

Currently, meron akong 75 points for 189 and EOI ko is this month lang (July). Unfortunately, sa current trend, mukhang malabo parin ako ma invite on August, so baka kailangan ko na mag student para makapag extend ng stay.

So ito po yung mga tanong ko:
1. Paano po ba process ng pag student sa ganitong case?
2. Ilang days/weeks po ba yung processing nun?
3. May mairerecommend po ba kayong agent? Recommended po ba na mag agent?
4. San po ba pwede malaman yung mga program/course na pwede pasukan?
5. May alam pa po ba kayong other ways na pwede akong mag stay at mag work?

Thank you po in advance!

    @butterfingers Yung temporary visa mo ba 457? Why not try NSW 190 especially if your occupation requires at least 1 year work experience in NSW.

    @butterfingers Hi, we have the same situation. My 485 visa will be expiring this October. Plan ko to study again just to buy time. I have lodged my eoi last June @80/85 pts for 189/190 visa. I dont think ma invite din ako in 3months dahil mataas masyado reqs for accountants... Mag consult ako ng migration agent in 2 weeks. But I think just to be safe mas ok mag study ulit. Pero if ur company is willing to sponsor mas ok...

    @maguero hi po, ano po ba process ng 190? Separate po ba yun sa 189 EOI?

    @Preitty hello po, pa share naman po ng advice ng agent ninyo kung okay lang. Unfortunately, di po ako ma sponsor ng company. Pero maswerte na okay lang daw student visa ako, minus working hours nga lang haha. May work around ba dun sa restriction na yun or strict ba yun..?

    @butterfingers Kailangan naka-tick sa EOI mo yung 190 visa option and naka-specify na gusto mo ma-invite ng NSW. Ito yung link para sa NSW state sponsorship https://www.industry.nsw.gov.au/live-and-work-in-nsw/visas-and-immigration/skilled-nominated-migration-190 Tignan mo kung nasa list nila yung occupation mo and kung may additional requirements. Nag-umpisa na mag-invite ang NSW last week so kung mataas points mo baka naman mainvite la in the next few months.

    @butterfingers, hi sorry late reply. Actually Kaka meet ko lng sa agent. Ang advise sakin is to go for company sponsorship. Willing kasi ung company to sponsor. But in any case, ok din ang mag student visa ulit - just make sure na ok daw ung statement of purpose at aligned sa career goals kasi ung gte requirement tlga ang titingnan. Most likely makikita nila na baka nagbabuy lng tlga ng time Kaya nag student visa which is not a good sign.. Pero pwede parin nmn to apply.
