留学新政策

从2016年7月1日起,SVP课程将会被取消,取而代之的是SSVF政策。将会推出全新的简化国际留学生签证框架SSVF,来支持澳洲国际教育的发展。


政策背景

2015年因为能源经济的疲软,中国对于矿产资源的低需求,导致澳洲经济一直萎靡不振。降息导致的澳洲房产大增长,让政府对于将来的经济走向更加的不明确,这个时候他们就想到了澳洲的三大支柱之一,教育业。如果想放开教育业,必然先从签证入手。最终决定激活澳洲的教育市场关键在于提高签证效率和降低费用要求。 

主要变化
1

签证类别从8个简化到2个

之前的570,571,572,573,574,575等8类学生签证简化为2类。


简化签证后,显而易见的好处就是学生不用在因为转学问题而频繁的转换签证,做到想学什么学什么,没有后顾之忧。

2

简化签证申请

采用简化的单一移民风险指数框架来考核所有国家留学生的签证风险。

其实就是为了降级留学生的签证要求,让更过的学生进入澳洲学习。 


趋势分析

这一次的利好消息必然导致新的留学大潮,但是在公告中也详细的说明了一点,希望学习目的真实的学生来澳洲学习。 在降级要求的同时,相应的审核应该不会有任何的松懈。 


但是对于这几年处于低谷的澳洲留学产业来说,可以说是一个很好的消息。 前几年因为移民政策的收紧,导致留学生人数的大幅下降。现在将会迎来一个全新的留学潮。 


英文报道

Minister for Education and Training, the Hon Christopher Pyne MP, and Assistant Minister for Immigration and Border Protection, Senator the Hon Michaelia Cash, today announced the introduction of a simplified international student visa framework (SSVF) to support Australia’s education services sector.


The changes will mean:


a reduction in the number of student visa subclasses from eight to two, and 


the introduction of a simplified single immigration risk framework for all international students.


“Australia is open for business and welcomes genuine and high quality international students who provide a much-needed boost to our economy, our local communities and jobs, and who boost our country-to-country relationships,” Minister Pyne said.


“We warmly welcome genuine international students and we are committed to improving and protecting the integrity of our immigration system.”


“After coming to office the Government moved immediately to improve competitiveness and it is pleasing to see growth in international student enrolments in Australia has resumed.”


Minister Cash said an improved approach to the administration of student visas as part of the SSVF will have clear benefits.  The overall integrity of the student visa programme will be maintained, and the improved regulatory arrangements will avoid placing unnecessary burden or cost on education providers.  

The SSVF will replace both the Streamlined Visa Processing (SVP) arrangements and the current Assessment Level Framework and will apply to all international students.
