Where unis can’t help international grads

Deakin U releases a major report on post-study work rights for international students

It’s survey-based research by Ly Tran, Mark Rahimi (both Deakin U) and George Tan (Uni Adeldaide) and CMM reported Aspro Tran’s take on their findings here (July 3).

They also point to a post study work-rights policy-problem that universities could help graduates with, but cannot.

“The fact that only migration agents are legally permitted to provide migration advice, which precludes universities and education agents from this, inadvertently contributes to the vulnerability of international students and graduates to unethical practices of some migration agents. Many universities avoid providing advice related to PSWR … pathways for international graduates as the matter is deemed to be too sensitive and closely interrelated with migration issues.”
