Australia closes Student visa loophole.

The Australian government announced on Saturday that it will immediately eliminate a gap in its visa policies that permitted foreign students to enroll in less expensive vocational courses as soon as they arrive in the nation.


The “concurrent study” rule, which is intended to help international students prepare for the labor market by allowing them to take short courses, allows them to take additional courses in addition to their core studies.


However, the government claimed that recent investigations had shown that students were abusing this provision to drop their university classes and switch permanently to less expensive ones.


Data showed that the use of concurrent study has dramatically increased, with 17,000 concurrent enrolments being established in the first half of 2023 compared to 10,500 for the same period in 2019 and 2022 combined.
