PROFESSIONAL YEAR PROGRAM – INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY

The ACS (IT) Professional Year is a Department of Home Affairs initiative which is designed for international graduates with an Australian IT degree. Developed by the Australian Computer Society, the ACS PY program provides IT graduates with a guided pathway from university to employment in Australia.

The reason for the development of this course is to provide a solution to the limited number of skilled professionals in Australia and increase the number of employable international students by increasing their expertise and skill-set and giving them the opportunity to obtain field training.

It is a 44-week course which includes 32 weeks of coursework and 12 weeks of internship.

One of the top benefits of completing a Professional Year Program is that the graduate is eligible to receive five (5) extra points on the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) 'points test' when applying for a Skilled Independent (subclass 189) visa.
