In order to build an international student market in Western Australia, its Government has recently made an announcement. It will release a supplementary occupation list exclusively for skilled graduates of Western Australian universities.
This will serve and meet the requirements of top achievers among the graduates. The candidates having a PhD, Masters, Honors and other top degrees in WA will also benefit from it. Additionally, it will open an extra pathway for Australia skilled migration, which is presently reserved for these medical-related professions.
