Earnings per month: (40×2) x 23 = Au$1,840

Total expenses for a student who works part-time in Australia and one who does not work part-time in Australia are as given below:

▪ Au$30,700

▪ Au$49,100

Australia is a very expensive place to study and hence most students will do some part-time work to offset at least their living expenses. 

During vacation time, you can work full time and hence earn 2.5X what a student earns monthly part-time, but we have not considered that additional earnings for calculation purposes.

Your spouse is also allowed to work part-time in Australia.

▪ Living Expense: Au$400 per month i.e., Au$4,800 for a year.

▪ Flight ticket: Au$3,000

▪ Health Insurance: Au$3,000

▪ Visa Fees: Au$300

▪ Part-time work earning at minimum pay if working 10 out of 12 months in a year: Au$18,400

Net SURPLUS earned by a working spouse will be Au$7,300.

So, if both student and spouse are working part-time during your 2/E course in Australia, the actual cost will come to: Au$23,400.

Approximate net expenses for a student and spouse under different conditions are given below:

Total expense for the student is Au$ 49,100 (26 Lakhs INR if 1 Au$ = 53 INR) if the student does not work in Australia.

Total expense for the student is Au$ 30,700 (16.30 Lakhs INR if 1 Au$ = 53 INR) if the student works part-time in Australia.

Total expense for the student and wife is Au$ 60,200 (31.90 Lakhs INR if 1 Au$ = 53 INR) if none of them work part-time in Australia.

Total expense for the student and wife is Au$ 23,400 (12.40 Lakhs INR if 1 Au$ = 53 INR) if both work part-time in Australia.

We will be guiding you with the visa procedure. The visa procedure is totally online now and is similar irrespective of the nationality of the student.

Au$9,661 per school-going children.

Travel cost per child: Au$3,000

Educational Loan / Personal Loan:

As you can see, the amount to show for an Australian visa is huge. Hence, most Indian students take loans be it personal loans, educational loans, loans against property, home loan top-ups, loans against insurance policies, loans against jewellery, etc. If you wish to apply for a loan, please do revert.

The money for the visa can be shown as cash in a bank account, fixed deposits, or bank loans. You can also show funds held by your parents, in-laws, and own brother/sister. 

Any sudden reflection of a large amount of money in your bank account will need to be explained with documentary evidence regarding its source as otherwise, that can be a ground for visa refusal.

Permanent Residency (PR) in Australia.

The PR for deck officers, engineer officers and Ships Master was stopped in Australia from 31 July 2017. Before that many seafarers did the Chief Mates or 2/E CoC from Australian Maritime College (AMC), University of Tasmania and took PR in Australia. It is not certain when PR for seafarers will start again for Australia as PR for professions is demand-supply based. Once the seafarers who took PR in Australia move back to shore-based jobs in Australia, one expects that demand will then outstrip supply and seafaring professions will again get included in the shortage occupation list (SoL). It may happen in 1 year or 5 years, that is something nobody can predict. That it will open again is almost a certainty but when it will happen can’t be predicted. As it is over 7 years since PR was stopped for seafarers, it is anticipated that it will reopen in the next 1 – 3 years’ time.

This leaves a student looking to do the Chief Mates or 2/E CoC course from AMC, University of Tasmania with 2 options primarily:

1st Option: Finish your CoC course and obtain your bachelor’s degree in marine engineering from UTas. Come back to your home country and start sailing. Whenever PR starts again for seafarers, apply for it from your home country only. PR processing takes about 6 months, and you will need to contact the Australian govt. licensed migration agents who are called as MARA agents.

2nd Option: After obtaining your 2/E or C/E CoC from AMSA and bachelor’s degree from UTas, proceed to do your MBA in Australia in a relevant field e.g., maritime logistics & supply chain or maritime management from the University of Tasmania. These are 1.5 – 2 years courses. Together the 2E / BSc & MBA will take your total course duration to 2.5 years. The rule in Australia is that if you do 2 years of continuous full-time study at a degree or above level, you get 2 – 4 years of post-study work visa in Australia. As Tasmania is a regional area, you get 3 – 4 years of post-study work visa if you work in Tasmania. Look for employment in Tasmania during your post-study work visa. After completing 1 year of relevant skilled employment in Tasmania then apply for PR under different occupation categories (not seafarer category) e.g. business development manager, market research analyst, procurement manager, quality assurance manager, sales & marketing manager, university lecturer, etc. Your MARA licensed migration agent who files your documents for PR will check your prior academic qualifications and work experience. He will guide you accordingly under which occupation (ANZSCO code) you should file for your PR. If you are married, your wife can work full time (as it is a post-graduate and not an undergraduate course) when you are doing an MBA in Australia. The costs get greatly reduced if you are working part-time and your wife is working full-time during your MBA course and your chances of applying for PR may open for both seafarer and non-seafarer categories.

I have given links to x2 such MBA courses that may be of interest to you in future:

▪ MBA in Maritime Management:


▪ MBA in Global Logistics and Supply Chain Management


Someone with a bachelor’s degree can opt to do this MBA course directly without doing the 2/E course.

I work for the University of Tasmania, Australia and am not a MARA-licensed migration (PR) agent. Hence, though I can help you out with admissions and student visa procedures as I am appointed by the University of Tasmania, I cannot file your PR (residency) application. Also, PR and other migration rules keep on changing depending upon the demand-supply for such jobs in Australia. So, it is best to approach a MARA agent once you finish your studies if you are looking for permanent migration to Australia.

If you wish to enrol, please send the documents as mentioned earlier. Also, please send the below-mentioned information:

▪ Your residential address and postal code.

▪ Any visa refusals for any country in the past.

▪ Travelling alone or with family. If with family, their name and relationship to you.

▪ Any relatives in Australia. If yes, their name, city of residence and relationship to you.

▪ Which batch you wish to join: February or June

▪ Your O level (Class X), A level (Class XII) and any Diploma / Degree certificate as well as course start/end date in the MM/YYYY format for the O level, A level and other diploma/degree qualification.

▪ Your email address.
