The Indian students are strongly getting influenced by Australia’s migration policy in terms of higher education. With the recent changes in the skilled migration policy, a huge number of students from around the world are choosing Australia to pursue their studies.
Due to the stringent Australian Visa and Immigration rules, there was a decrease in the enrollment number of applications for Australia. Keeping all this in mind, the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) made few changes and also reduced the financial requirements for the students visa. This allows the international students to work for almost 4 years in Australia after their graduation.
The DIAC intended to make changes in work visas. The work visa was made compliant by introducing post study work visas that would benefit the students. These changes would attract students to immigrants to Australia to pursue their higher education.
The steps that were taken to change the policy has benefited Australia. Due to the positive promotion of Australia as a safe destination has helped to attract students from around the world. Australia offers opportunities for students to do part time jobs along with their education. The student can earn money along with their education and take care of their expenses.
