Tier 5 Youth Mobility Schemes provide a cultural exchange programme that allows young people aged 18 to 30 from participating countries and territories to experience life in the UK for up to two years. In return, qualifying UK citizens enjoy similar access to our partner countries.

We have no current plans to increase the upper age limit of the scheme between the UK and Australia.
