Description of the program

Working on the farm provides an opportunity to participate in rural life with the possibility of financing a trip to Australia. This intensive training followed by a guaranteed salary allows young people on work holidays to save up to AUD $10,000 in 3 months! And to renew their visa for a 2nd year! The only condition: be motivated, ready to learn and get your hands dirty.

Like all of our gap year programs, this project in Australia offers a combination of training and employment within a local organization to allow you to obtain a complete professional experience, while leaving for a gap year advantage.

The program is available from 4 to 24 weeks, all services are included in the first 2 weeks which explains the unique price regardless of the duration. In general, participants choose to stay 3 months on this first job because the completion of 88 days or more of farm work allows them to obtain a second Working Holiday Visa, which is 1 year more in Australia!

Thus the 16 week program is the standard program to optimize the start of your working holiday in Australia. This is the ideal length of time to prepare and benefit from a safe and guaranteed path to your second visa.

If you wish, you can start your program with English classes to improve your level and have the best immersive experience afterwards!
