Extension Of Post-Study Work Rights For International Students

In an attempt to tackle the issue of skills shortages, the Australian government has decided to extend post-study work rights for international students who graduated from an Australian institute. As a result, international students with eligible qualifications will enjoy an additional two years of post-study work rights from 1 July 2023. Moreover, the government is updating the working hour cap for international students, increasing it from 40 hours to 48 hours per fortnight.

The list of occupations and qualifications eligible for post-study work rights extension includes health, engineering, agriculture, and teaching.




Here’s a breakdown of how this extension will affect individuals at different graduate levels;

  • Those with Bachelor’s degrees will have four years of post-study work rights instead of two.
  • Post-study work rights for students with Master’s degrees will increase from three years to five years.
  • Students with Doctoral degrees will have six years of post-study work rights instead of four.

What’s important to note here is that the current regional and remote Australia settings will remain the same and grant two extra years to all eligible graduates. Furthermore, targeted skills will be updated when necessary to help fill the gaps in the labour market.

Don’t forget eligible graduates holding a valid Temporary Graduate visa on 1 July 2023 will get a two-year extension.

The extension of post-study work rights will prove beneficial for employers, as graduates will be allowed to work for longer periods without any restrictions.
