March 2018, 05
EMAIL  Print A+
Considering the statistics released by the Department of Home Affairs - Australia, the number of Indian students, who applied in Australian universities, witnessed an increase of 32 percent between July and December 2017.

190,000 foreign students had applied for studying in Australia between July and December 2017.

The increase among Chinese applicants was 13 percent, and Nepal stood at the third position from where 12,000 students applied.

There was an increase of 14.1 percent, between July and December 2017, in the number of foreign students, who wished to pursue higher education in Australia, compared to the figures in 2016.

There was no impact of the job squeeze and racist attacks in Australia, on the Indian and Chinese students, who intended to study in Australian universities.

The number of student visa given, increased by 7 percent, and 90 percent of applicants received it. 41,000 student visas were given to students from China. The numbers for Indian nationals was 20,000.

The government statistics made known that the number of international students, who moved into skilled jobs in the country after completing the graduation, had decreased. This was the result of the changes, which were made to the 457 visa, which is presently abolished and will be changed during the present month.  3,000 graduates moved on to the 457 visa, registering a decrease of 50 percent compared to the figures of 2016.

A statement given by the Department of Home Affairs, stated that on April 18th, 2017, PM Malcolm Turnbull and Minister for Immigration Peter Dutton, jointly made an announcement that the Temporary Work Skilled visa subclass 457 shall be abolished, and it will be replaced with a new Temporary Skill Shortage visa, to support all businesses, to address genuine skill shortages, in the country.

The 457 visa, allows a skilled worker, to arrive in Australia for working in a nominated occupation, for the approved sponsor, for four years.

The aim of the new visa is to strengthen the quality and integrity of temporary and permanent employer-sponsored Skilled Migration Programs in Australia. Its implementation began in April 2017 and would be completed in March 2018.

The numbers of persons who transitioned to either the 189 or 190 Skilled Visa, also decreased. There was a 30 percent increase among the students who transitioned to a 485 temporary graduate visa. This visa is meant for global students, who have completed their graduation, recently, from an educational institution in Australia.

Many Australian universities like NSW, Deakin, Queensland, and Canberra witnessed an increase in the enrolment of Indian students during 2017.
