Changes to the points test for skilled migration have been made to encourage international students who have completed Australian postgraduate research qualifications in a science, technology, engineering or mathematics field to remain in Australia.

These graduates will be granted additional points under the skilled migration programme, enhancing their pathway to permanent residence in Australia.

The Minister for Industry, Innovation and Science Greg Hunt said these new initiatives would complement the Government’s wider National Innovation and Science Agenda.

These initiatives will continue to encourage innovation in Australia by ensuring that ideas from research are converted into commercial reality, and by encouraging the best and the brightest postgraduate students with a science or technology focused qualification to remain in Australia Mr Hunt said.
