Graduate Diploma of Australian Migration Law and Practice

Griffith University

This program meets one of the knowledge requirements of becoming a registered Migration Agent in Australia. The Office of the Migration Agents Registration Authority (OMARA) recognises Griffith University as a provider of the Graduate Diploma of Australian Migration Law and Practice. Applicants intending to register should also ensure they meet OMARA requirements for registration. Only Australian citizens (or those holding permanent resident visas) can register with OMARA. This program is open both to lawyers and to those without a legal background. As a currently registered migration agent wishing to complete the program, applicants should also note that it will provide credit towards Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements. The program may also offer credit to lawyers for CPD. Applicants should check with the relevant law society in this regard.
