Why VU?

Janelle Kelly 

One of the things that makes the VU migration course really unique is the fact that it's taught by practitioners that are actually working in the field. So they've got that practical knowledge as well as the academic knowledge.

I was once the head person at the Refugee Review Tribunal and that experience was something that I'll never forget, because these people are in dreadful situations.

What skills will you gain?

Janelle Kelly

In the VU course students will develop skills in being able to read the legislation, but also being able to apply that to practical situations so that they can assist their clients. The course will also help students to develop their submission skills, their interview skills, research skills, all things that the students will need once they become migration agents.

When people talk about immigration law they just feel that it is just visas, but it's not just visas. There's a lot in immigration law. There's corporate, there's investors, there are students, there are migrants, there are people who are unlawful. So you learn a lot. The skills, what you learn from practising  immigration law is diverse.
