The overseas students pursuing their Master’s degree in Medical stream are being affected by immigration red tape. Stephanie Chu from the US arrived in Australia to pursue her higher education in Medical stream in one of the top universities in Australia. She was hopeful that the Master’s degree would enable her to secure a job in Australia and eventually obtain the Australia PR.
On the other hand, the 25-year-old immigrant from the US is adversely affected by the immigration red tape in Australia. She is disheartened to learn that in spite of spending 8 years at Sydney University the federal agency to recognize medical laboratory scientists considers that she has not received an appropriate education.
Ms. Chu now is risked with deportation from Australia in spite of having a Master’s degree and having worked in Australia. She has worked as a medical scientist a field that has a huge demand for workers. The immigration red tape is now emerging as a loophole in the 20 billion dollars education industry of Australia.
The issue of arduous accreditation standards has emerged as a big issue. So much so that Simon Birmingham the Education Minister of Australia has ordered an inquiry into this. A panel for higher education standards will be conducting this inquiry.
Ms. Chu secured her Graduate degree in Medical Science. She then completed her Master’s degree in medical science with the specialization in infection in immunity at the Sydney University. Ms. Chu was then employed in the field of medical laboratory for a couple of years.
However in spite of her educational and professional credentials secured in Australia Ms. Chu is ineligible to apply for a visa to reside in Australia. The reason is that her degree is not recognized by the Institute of Medical Sciences of Australia.
