The information technology (IT) industry is one of the fastest-growing industries in Australia. Because of this, competition for excellent job opportunities has become tougher than ever, making the situation more challenging for recent IT graduates. Fortunately, the Professional Year in IT equips international IT graduates with the skills and knowledge they need to thrive in Australian workplaces.
The Professional Year Program in Information Technology is open to international students who have obtained a degree in IT from Australian universities. It is designed to help improve the graduates’ qualifications and employability by providing them with job readiness training and a 12-week IT internship placement.
The 44-week program is developed by the Australian Computer Society or ACS and endorsed by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection to help address the shortage of qualified IT professionals in the country.
