One of the strongest indicators of post-study employment is whether a student worked during their studies according to a new lEAA survey. But mismatches between employment and graduates' skills mean Australia is not fully benefiting from its PSWR scheme.
While the UK sector has rejoiced at the UK's announcement to re-introduce PSW rights, some stakeholders have confirmed that they have been "inundated" by students wondering if they are eligible and some of those were considering moving their start date in order to benefit.
UK home secretary Sajid Javid has called for post-study work restrictions on international students to be lifted, arguing that the six-month limit undermines Britain’s universities and harms the country’s search for global talent.
A new report has revealed that the UK's limitations on post-study work cost the treasury £150 million each year in foregone receipts, amounting to just over £1 billion since the restrictions were introduced in 2012.
