The full list of courses that allow international graduates to receive extended post-study working rights has been released.

If anyone needed another reason to study in Australia, international students enrolled in courses linked to workforce shortages can apply to live and work for longer in Australia.

From 1 July 2023, a two-year extension of post-study work rights is available for international graduates enrolled in eligible courses including teaching, nursing, and engineering.

There are over 3,000 eligible courses available. International graduates enrolled in these courses will have an additional two years added to their Temporary Graduate visa.

Extensions will increase from:

  • Two years to four years for select Bachelor degrees
  • Three years to five years for select Masters degrees
  • Four years to six years for all doctoral degrees.
