Designed to equip you with the technical and practical knowledge needed as a registered migration agent, Applied Migration Law and Practice is offered three times a year.

In addition to allowing you to apply an advanced body of knowledge across a range of contexts, the course features teaching and learning activities that allow you to participate in realistic client scenarios, from first contact through to finalisation of the matter.
