Increased number of Australia student visa applicants

And the onus must be given to simplified Australia student visa norms.

Simpler Australia student visa rules—Increased number of applicants have been making applications for coming to Australia to study here. Yes, that is quite true. And this has been due to recent simplifications in Australia student visa rules.

Australia’s simplified student visa norms have led to a sudden hike in the number of applicants for Australia student visas.

More and more foreign students are making applications for Australian universities. That’s due to streamlines process of Australia student visas by the government of Australia. And increased number of scholarships are also being offered to foreign students from Australian universities.

All such efforts have led to more international students applying for studying in Australia.

Number of Indian applicants for Australia student visa doubles--As per the details, simpler Australia visa rules for international students have resulted in increase in the number of applicants during the September quarter last year.

Each day, on an average nearly 6,700 applications for Australia visas are being processed in India. And this reveals an increasing trend for studying in Australia among Indian students. And the tighter UK student visa rules have also led to fewer applicants for UK student visas.

In such a scenario, the UK’s loss seems to be Australia’s gain. Moreover, Australia’s improved prospects for post-study work for foreign graduates has been significantly helpful in making Australia a favored destination for studying overseas among international students.

Introduction of new immigration categories—Australia also introduced short-term business visa and short-stay visa for business visitors to the nation. These include short-stay visa for six weeks and short-term business visa for business visitors to the country.

Such steps are inviting more foreigners to come to Australia.

Quality education attracts foreign students to Australia--Its the hope of getting higher quality of education in Australia that seems to be attracting an increased number of Indian students to Australia.

In fact, the lure for gaining Australia permanent residency is not the only attraction for Indian students. Their aim is to gain quality education in Australia.

The figures for Australia student visa applicants have almost doubled in the period of last year or so. Figures show the applicants for Australia student visas from India went up to 4,148 in the year till September 2013 from 1,987.
