Further to the introduction of the new regional visas there is also an additional incentive to study in regional Australia.

Temporary Graduate visa holders may be eligible to apply for one more year if they graduate from a regional campus and then spend at least two years residing in the regional area so this all together would allow them three years visa with full work rights. The definition of regional Australia for this purpose will be the same as the definition for skilled migration – all of Australia except Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
