How International Student Integration Benefits Multicultural Communities

How International Student Integration Benefits Multicultural Communities

Australia’s education system is so popular with international students that it helps enrich our multicultural diversity. The influx of keen learners from around the world not only contributes to our economy but they also bring with them their passions, their knowledge and their stories. Australian student visas can do a lot to shape our country for the better.

World Leader in Education

Senator Richard Colbeck said that in 2015 almost half a million international students studied in Australia and that there was a 10% growth in numbers compared to 2014. These statistics demonstrate that the Australian population is growing to accommodate international students looking for a great place to study and to live.

In addition to studying, these international students are also integrating into Australian society and are helping shape the future.Happy couple in love embracing in while exploring the city.

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, 24.6% of Australia’s population was born overseas while 43.1% of people have at least one parent that was born overseas. In other words, a quarter of our population has familial ties with other countries. These bonds are important to maintain and are paramount to our national identity as a place that celebrates the representation of other cultures such as the United Kingdom, New Zealand, China, India and Vietnam.

Australia offers opportunities for migrants to receive the training and the professional assistance they need to satisfy the requirements of an Australian student visa. Consult a registered migration agent like Glorious Immigration to discuss fulfilment criteria such as English proficiency, health insurance cover and more.

Immigration Success Story

A recent case study of an intensive care nurse who moved from India to study in Australia highlights the advantages of connecting a Tasmanian community with culture. Mr Jerose Joseph shared his passion for cricket and Indian cinema to bring both the Indian and wider communities closer together.

The New and Improved Student Visa Framework

The New and Improved Student Visa Framework  Visa’s 500, 590, 402, 485

The economic benefits of cultural diversity and continued immigration is contributing to the rich, vibrant suburban landscape of communities throughout Australia. The yearly influx of international students into Australia’s diverse educational environments including colleges and tertiary institutions is helping to improve racial and cultural understanding, enhance student satisfaction while supporting not only the growth of Australia’s education sector but a burgeoning, robust economy . With post-graduate opportunities for further study and work within your grasp through the Temporary Graduate visa (subclass 485) and the Department of Immigration and Border Protections selection of Working visas, at Glorious Immigration we can guide you through the journey of studying and living in Australia. And as the Australian government heralds in the SSVF (simplified student visa framework), the process for studying in Australia has been streamlined in order to assist genuine students in navigating the visa process while supporting the Australian educational services sector. Notable changes include:

  • A reduction in the number of student visa subclasses from eight to two.*
  • The introduction of a simplified single immigration risk framework for all international students.*
  • A more targeted approach to immigration integrity while creating a more balance playing field for all the various educational providers.*
  • The SSVF has been developed to replace the existing streamlined visa processing and AL framework arrangements.*
  • Students will no longer be required to apply for a specific student visa subclass – it is intended to streamline all subclasses into the one visa.*
  • The new process will enable students to identify what documents they will be required to provide in support of their visa application by entering both their intended education provider and country of citizenship into an online tool.*
  • Documentary evidence in support of a student’s financial and English language capacity will be determined by the immigration risk of both the student’s educational provider and country of citizenship.*
  • The current eligibility criteria for the Temporary Graduate (subclass 485) visa will not change.*

The team at Glorious Immigration will consult with you to determine the most appropriate visa for your specific circumstances and future goals.

As an international student, studying is only one aspect of this incredible adventure. Australia is a continent bursting with opportunities and activities that enable you to share your rich diverse cultural heritage both inside and outside of the classroom. Perhaps it’s immersing oneself in community outreach programs, or engaging in extracurricular activities that will help you to develop skill sets such as teamwork and leadership. Sharing your culture and skills with members of your local Australian community will help create memories that will support and empower you as you pursue your goals


If you wish to remain temporarily in Australia on completion of your studies, you may pursue either the Graduate Work stream or the Post-Study Work stream:

  • The Graduate Work stream: Relevant to international students who graduate with skills and qualifications that relate to occupations as listed in the Skilled Occupation List. A visa granted in this stream is usually for a period of 18 months.
  • Post-Study Work stream: Offers extended options to eligible graduates of a higher education degree that intend to work in Australia. Under this stream a successful applicant is granted a visa of either two, three or four years’ duration, which correlates with the highest educational qualification they obtained.

Our team of registered migration agents can assist you as you pursue further education in Australia. Immerse yourself into Australian society, live, study, work and explore all the opportunities and adventures that Australia has to offer.

Changes to the Skilled Occupation List -Visa’s 189, 489, 485 that you need to know!

Changes to the Skilled Occupation List -Visa’s 189, 489, 485 that you need to know!

Are you planning on skilled migration to Australia? The Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) have released the new Skilled Occupations List (SOL) for 2016-2017 which came into effect as of July 1st, 2016.
When migrating to Australia the Skilled Occupations List is used to determine the following visa applications:

Visa: 189 – Skilled Independent Visa
Visa: 489 – Skilled Regional Provisional Visa
Visa: 485 – Graduate Temporary Visa

If you are looking to apply for an Independent or Family Sponsored Points Tested visa or a Temporary Graduate (subclass 485) Graduate Work Stream visa, then ensuring your occupation is listed amongst the Skilled Occupation List is the first step to securing a new and prosperous future in Australia. At Glorious Immigration we can guide you through the process of skilled migration to Australia with expertise.

In order to streamline the application process, the Department of Immigration and Border Protection have also expanded the occupations list to help boost innovation and productivity and create opportunities for skilled migrants in areas that may be experiencing a skills shortage. They have also removed occupational sectors in line with labour market needs. The occupations that have been added include:

• Orthotist or Prosthetist (ANZSCO 251912)

• Audiologist (ANZSCO 252711)

Occupations that have been removed from the SOL 2016-2017 are:work-visa

• Mining Engineer (Excluding Petroleum) (ANZSCO 233611)

• Petroleum Engineer (ANZSCO 233612)

• Metallurgist (ANZSCO 234912)

• Environmental Health Officer (ANZSCO 251311)

• Occupational Health and Safety Adviser (ANZSCO 251312)

• Dental Hygienist (ANZSCO 411211)

• Dental Prosthetist (ANZSCO 411212)

• Dental Technician (ANZSCO 411213)

• Dental Therapist (ANZSCO 411214)

The review of the SOL has not impacted the Consolidated Sponsored Occupations List (CSOL) and the full listing of occupations on the 2016-2017 SOL can be found here at In recognising skills gaps and the benefits associated with outsourcing skilled migrants, this process can alleviate recruitment difficulties and make a very real and valid contribution to the economic growth of Australia. So from Nurses and Engineers to Accountants and IT specialists, Australia needs you, make your enquiry today!

So what does the process entail, how does the Department of Immigration and Border Protection assess the suitability of occupations for inclusion, let us tell you how – they:

  • Identify occupations that are most susceptible to supply constraints and/or most likely to warrant government assistance in addressing these constraints.
  • Assess the medium to long-term skill needs of the economy for each occupation identified in step one, to determine if the occupation would benefit from independent skilled migration.

If as a skilled migrant you have lodged an application in the skilled categories previous to July 1st, 2016, your application is not affected by these changes. All applicants will need to undertake a skills assessment as part of their visa application and this must be performed under the guidance of a registered migration agent such as the team at Glorious Immigration. We will also provide post-study counselling and consultation and information relating to the Temporary Graduate (subclass 485) – Graduate Work Stream visa. At Glorious Immigration we will furnish all the necessary application forms and information necessary regarding your assessment and ultimately your application.

The composition of the SOL is subject to annual review.
