Int’l Education In Crisis With Australian Immigration Policies—Expert

According to an immigration expert, policy amnesia and a wall of silence between government departments might lead to a crisis in Australian international education worse than the “degrees for residency” disaster earlier this century.

Policy amnesia is the outcome of a number of institutional shifts, including the loss of public workers’ influence on policy formation and the rise of ministerial advisers’ power.

Key Takeaways:

  • According to an expert, policy amnesia and a wall of silence between government departments might lead to a crisis in Australian foreign education.
  • Rather than academic goals, many overseas enrollments are motivated by post-study work rights.
  • Rizvi has warned that policies like removing limits on overseas students’ working hours are transforming Australia into a “low-skilled guest-worker society.”

Many international enrollments, according to Abul Rizvi, are being driven by post-study work rights rather than scholastic objectives.

As institutions tailor their offerings to the genuine goals of students, they risk encouraging low-quality courses and undermining the country’s educational reputation.

Rizvi has cautioned that policies such as lifting restrictions on international students’ working hours are turning Australia into a “low-skilled guest-worker society.”

It can be recalled that foreign students’ working hours is an emergency step to address shortages in the health care, hospitality, agriculture, and grocery industries at a time of a pandemic.

According to the Department of Home Affairs, working constraints are being eliminated as temporary measures, but no date has been specified for when they would be lifted.

The Council of Small Business Associations Australia claims that other types of vocations should be available so that all international students can work as many hours as possible.
