About this program

This Graduate Certificate program is not available to International students.

In 2006, the Office of the Migration Agents Registration Authority (MARA) launched the Graduate Certificate in Australian Migration Law and Practice. This program is an important step forward in increasing entry level standards for migration agents. It also helps improve community perceptions of the profession. New applicants for registration as an Australian migration agent, who do not hold a current legal practising certificate, are required to complete this postgraduate program.

This graduate certificate is open both to lawyers and to those without a legal background. As a currently registered migration agent wishing to complete the program, you should also note that it will provide credit towards Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements. The program may also offer credit to lawyers for CPD. You should check with the relevant law society in this regard.

This program belongs to a suite of postgraduate programs.
