The government is trying to showcase the talent that is brought and the pieces of training that the system provides to employers in Australia. Hence the
New rules have been proposed at the two-day jobs and Skills summit. They are:
The degrees that will be given priority will get announced in October and the list includes engineering, IT, and Nursing. Government considers that graduates can directly replace the shortage that is there in highly skilled workers.

The Federal government has already taken a forward step to maximize Australia’s permanent skilled migration program target by welcoming 195,000 skilled workers to Australia. Initially, it was 35000 only to invite nurses and technology workers who directly meet the skills that are in shortage.
As international students study in the Australian education system and bring a lot of money to Australia, they can contribute a lot to the economy, which helps with the skills that are in shortage.
Jason Clare, the Federal Education Minister says “Around 16% of international students stay back to work after their studies in Australia, whereas this number is 27% for Canada”
International students were always seen as temporary by employers, and it was difficult for them to get a job after.
“The extensions for allowing graduates to work in Australia for longer will surely provide certainty to the foreign students while finishing their studies and can help them in finding work.
There are fundamental misconceptions about international students working. Many of the onshore foreign students assisted Australia during the COVID period by working in Aged Care homes, Cafes, and volunteer organizations.
Due to misconceptions about their rights to work and most of them were not staying in Australia for more than two long years.
Relaxation in working number of hours
The government is looking for an extension on the number of hours that the international students work and training visa holders can also work till June 30, 2023, with the stakeholders.
Mr. Zi Shao Ong says considers working on the extension of the number of working hours will not exploit illegal working conditions.
There are steps planned to take for international students who could be allowed to work in their relevant industries to earn and support their education. Hence there is much need to work on the rights of international students working after graduation, rather than reverting back to the old rules after June 30, 2023.
