Australian Temporary Graduate Visa Attracting Many Global Students

Australian Temporary Graduate Visa
The number of global students who reside in Australia following graduation on the Australian temporary graduate visa– often recognized as the subclass 485 visa is rising fast. There were approximately 92,000 holders of temporary graduate visa in Australia as of Jun 2019. That’s up from approximately 71,000 in Jun 2018 which is a 29% boost.

The subclass 485 visa was launched in 2008 and refreshed in 2013, taking on suggestions from the 2011 Knight Review, which identified post-study work permits for global students as essential for Australia to continue competing in the global education market.

Below the visa, recent global graduates of a degree or qualification from an institution in Australia can live in Australia for tenure of two to four years, based on their qualification. The government of Australia points to this visa as offering an opportunity for foreign students to remain in Australia for a restricted period and obtain global work experience.

In our current study, we analyzed the consequences of the subclass 485 visa policy on foreign students in Australia and on the Australian labor market.

Out of the visa holders we examined, 76% told right to the visa was an essential factor in their choice to study in Australia and the plenty of the past (89 percent) and present (79 percent) subclass 485 visa holders in Australia engaged in the labor force.

But several graduates didn't work full-time, and they didn't significantly work in their area of study. A substantial graduates number were engaged in hospitality, retail, or cleaners.

The Statistics

The collected data by an online survey from 1,156 foreign graduates, some of them are in Australia and some of them are back to their home lands. We also attended in-depth discussions with students and other important stakeholders such as companies. Our study covered government policy and figures.

The first five citizenship nations of subclass 485 visa holders in Australia (China, India, Pakistan, Nepal, Vietnam) have also been the best five source nations of international registrations in Masters (China, India, Pakistan, Nepal, Vietnam) programs since 2013.
