Career Defining & Character Building

This is what our Professional Year program can do for you




“If you are looking to make your big step towards your professional career, Performance     Education is the best place to start off your journey from theory to practical” Aasa

“We did our Professional Year with Performance Education and it was one of the best experience we had! When I first came in Australia, I didn’t know how I should be starting off with my IT Career. Didn’t have references, didn’t have a perfect resume. Also, I didn’t know that there was a package deal that will align with all my requirements and eventually help with my career growth!” Aparajeeta

Many international graduates find themselves in the same shoes as Aparajeeta – with all the aspirations and enthusiasm to start their professional careers in IT or Accounting and dreaming of a happy life in Australia.

There are many providers out there who offer Professional Year programs, and one thing they all have in common is the fact that upon successful completion, you may be eligible for 5 points under the Skillselect Migration pathway to Permanent Residency in Australia.

But beyond that, there are MANY differences in the quality of the programs!


Take it from our graduates directly as they share their experiences on how the Professional Year (PY) has helped them personally to develop more confidence in themselves, and professionally with relevant practical experience in their chosen field.



of our graduates receive paid employment offers directly from their Host Employer where they completed their internship.

And not only that, but the companies that we place our students in, have to meet certain criteria and understand that an internship is a way to nurture and support the interns throughout the 3 months placement – and an opportunity for the company to discover new talent.

As one of our mentors said recently:

“I really enjoy the opportunity to mentor the interns we take on board and see their skills develop over the 3 months.” Senior Manager, Salesforce


Our PY Graduate, Shivam Sachdeva, said:

“I would recommend the PE Professional Year Program to any graduate who is looking for their first job. It really boosted my confidence and I started to believe in myself. It changed my life – not only at the professional front, but at the personal front as well and after completion I have received my Permanent Residency.”



We know that many of you have this dream of working for one of the big global brands and sometimes we do have opportunities for internships at places like Salesforce.


“I am very happy with PE – I am currently interning for Salesforce and I couldn’t be more happier. The mentor is very responsive and provides me with valuable advice. She has also been helping me secure an opportunity within the business. I am proud to be a part of a large MNC and when I speak with my peers at other providers, some of them are struggling to find internships whereas PE has placed me in an amazing opportunity. This is the best part about PE.” Suresh Baral


But our guiding principle is this: We find the right internship FOR YOU!


Our team of dedicated Placement Consultants takes time to personally get to know you and your career aspirations. For example, if you are dreaming of running your own business one day, interning at a SME will be much more beneficial for your learning as you’ll get exposed more quickly to various areas of the business.

We pride ourselves in this matching process. Working with the largest number of Host Employers amongst all of the providers (11,500 companies and counting!), we will find you an internship that will give you the edge and propel your career forward!

And with locations in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Brisbane, and flexible study options, the program WORKS FOR YOU.



A few final words on the overall experience with Performance Education:


“I would like to express my sincere gratitude for providing me with the best possible assistance during my professional year, which helped me to gain a paid internship. I must say, I appreciate the guidance provided by you and your team at every level.” Mirza Sulaiman Baig


“To all the international students who want to learn new skills, improve your confidence and achieve your career goals, I recommend PE’s Professional Year program to set you up for a career in IT.” Shriya Dangol


“I would highly recommend Performance Education for Professional Year course given their industry connections and candidate support throughout the internship.” Ahmed Abdullah
