Overseas students studying an AASW accredited social work course in Australia

From 1 July 2022, international graduates will be able to apply directly to the Department of Home Affairs for the Temporary Graduate 485 visa and will not be required to undergo a qualifications assessment.

Given this, Assessing Authorities including the AASW will no longer accept applications for the assessment of social work qualifications for a Temporary Graduate 485 visa.

The last day for the AASW to accept a TGV application is Friday, 10 June 2022.

In order for a decision to be made by Thursday, 30 June 2022 on such applications, it is requested that complete applications including all certified documentation be submitted.
