Opportunities for Masters Degree

A master’s degree in any subject from an Australian Institute makes a graduate more valuable to employers around the world. In addition, recently the law permits Australian institutions to allow work permits to international graduates for four years after they graduate. True, that International student may be eligible to work in Australia after graduation, but, students should not start studying in Australia for the sole purpose of migration. Australia offers preferential migration treatments for individuals on a skilled businesses list, but the efficient migration process is different from the student visa process. Studying for a Master’s degree in Australia is no guarantee that a student will be able to migrate to Australia.
After completing a Master’s degree, students can also enrol in a doctoral program, continue their studies and receive an additional student visa.
