Australia announced an ‘Additional Temporary Graduate’ visa. In this, international students graduating from a registered university’s regional campus get an additional year of work in Australia after studying. According to the current rules, students studying up to Bachelor or Master degree in Australia get a visa for work for 2 years after studying. But now they will get three years in the new rule.
In a separate release released on 20 March, Prime Minister of Australia Scott Morrison announced a new scholarship scheme. The scheme was meant to attract Australian and international students to study in other areas of Australia. Every year, local and international students will receive around 15,000 Australian dollars (about 7 lakh rupees).
