Perth has recently been officially designated as a regional study city by the Australian government. This is great news for international students looking for a world class education in a world class city, with a migration option.

With infrastructure pressue on east coast cities, the Australian government is providing incentives for students to study in other state capital cities around Australia, including vibrant Perth.

From November 16 2019, Perth will be able to offer additional opportunities and attractions for international students.

  • An additional 5 points on the points test (to meet the Department of Home Affairs’ minimum threshold for points-tested visas) for studying in a regional area
  • Access to an additional year of post-study work for international higher education and post-graduate students. Students will have the ability to gain an addition year of work experience and eligibility for skills assessments required to apply for skilled visas (including State nominated visas)
