To stay for your Graduation, the student must have a letter from the Authority of the Educational Institute along with the date of your graduation.

If you’re a mastermind and recently Graduated from a well-recognized Engineering Institute you can make an effort to apply for the Skilled Recognition Graduate VISA i.e. Subclass 476.
