Perth will be a more attractive destination for international students, with the Federal Government reinstating Perth’s status as a regional city, helping to create local jobs.
In response to recent changes to visa and migration settings, the State Government requested for Perth to be re-classified as a ‘region’ for international students. This will come into effect on November 16.
“As a regional city, Perth will be an option for international students who want to study here, as they will now be eligible for an additional year in Australia on a post-study work visa.”
“That additional year of post-study work by international students who choose Perth will not only benefit students with work experience, income, and post-study financial stability, but also help drive stronger economic growth.
The change will have no impact on the Western Australian Skilled Migration Occupation List (WASMOL), which remains the same.
