Following an Australian Government review of the migration system, a new discussion paper called The Outline of the Government’s Migration Strategy has now been released.
Recommendations and proposed reforms
The Outline includes recommendations and proposed reforms that are relevant to international students and graduates, including:
- improving the job-readiness of international students
- establishing more efficient pathways to graduate visas for international students
- supporting international students with the greatest potential to succeed in the labour market in Australia, and
- ensuring that student visa holders are travelling to Australia for the genuine purpose of receiving a world class education.
A final Migration Strategy is expected to be released in late 2023. More information about the Migration Review and Outline of the Migration Strategy is available on the Home Affairs website.
How we will be supporting international students
Throughout the year, the Australian Government will work closely with all state and territory study destination agencies to support international students and graduates seeking employment in Australia.
Together, we will develop a program of Study Australia activities that build on current resources such as the Study Australia Employability Hub and our range of helpful blog posts. Updates will be provided via the Study Australia website, student newsletter and social media channels.
