From 3 April 2019, a new definition of an ‘academic year’ has been released. This is defined as ‘at least a total of 46 week’ duration for a CRICOS course. It is intended to remove uncertainty as to the number of weeks a course must be registered. This will potentially impact on persons aiming to meet the Australian Study Requirement e.g. the 485 Graduate visa.
