Welcome to Australia's new initiative for international students
Funded by the Australian Government Department of Immigration and Citizenship through the Diversity and Social Cohesion Program, Enhance Australia aims to assist international students to feel welcome in their off-campus community. Using members of the Australian community to boost an international student's support network, the program will build the capacity of international students to establish support networks in their local communities.
The Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) have published a fact sheet about visa compliance. For information about Visa administration, study tips, living and work tips, visa cancellation or contacting the department please see the fact sheet.
On 8 February 2010, the Australian Government announced a number of changes to its skilled migration program. These changes included the withdrawal of the Migration Occupation in Demand List (MODL) and the introduction of a new Skilled Occupation List (SOL).
