MTA 024 - Don't Study Accounting Or Smoke Weed

In mid-December, the latest round of invitations for the Skilled Independent visa (subclass 189) and Skilled Work (Provisional) visa (subclass 491) from the Australian Department of Immigration and Home Affairs were released. 

These are working visas, and pathways to permanent residency, and invitations to apply are assessed using the points system that David discusses frequently.

The latest round has lifted the MINIMUM points required to be considered has risen to 100, and now makes Accounting a very poor (if not stupid!) choice for anybody thinking about studying in Australia as a pathway to gain permanent residency.

David and Grant walk through how to arrive at 100 points, and discuss how it is basically impossible for anyone studying accounting.

They then answer a listener question about cannabis (weed) and the medical blood test for immigration.
