1. The Mayor of Melbourne suggested that graduates studying abroad should get a 4-year work permit
Due to the impact of the epidemic, studying in Australia has also been affected. In order to alleviate and restore study abroad and the economy, it is hoped that further development will be achieved.According to the latest Australian media reports, Melbourne Mayor Sally Capp has set her sights on international students. She and her team will lobby the next federal government to make it easier for international students to work in Australia after completing their degrees, and the longer the better. Capp is currently working hard to revive Melbourne's economy.Capp wants every student who completes an undergraduate degree or above to automatically receive a four-year visa, doubling the maximum time allowed for most students.
She will outline the proposal in her latest presentation. It comes after Victoria's top real estate body called on the state government to launch an international marketing campaign to attract foreign students and to provide a $15,000 grant to anyone relocating from interstate or overseas. Capp said Melbourne's decade-long population boom was already in crisis.Melbourne had previously been expected to overtake Sydney as Australia's largest city in a few years' time. But tens of thousands of people will leave Victoria in the next three years, according to the latest federal forecast. Capp said "dramatic and courageous" actions, such as her international student program, were needed.Doing so would help make Australia a more attractive and beneficial destination for students, retain bright, globally-connected talent and address current labour and skills shortages, she said.In fact, now taught masters can have at least a 3-year work permit. If they are in remote areas such as Tasmania/Canberra/Ade, there is still a chance to renew the visa for 1-2 years. I hope that undergraduates will also have better "treatment" on the work permit!

This year's subject rankings examine and include more than 15,200 different academic programmes, an increase of more than 1,000 on last year's rankings. Together with the rankings of the five academic fields, a total of 17,700 projects are listed in this ranking. The ranking methodology consists of five indicators: Academic reputation, employer reputation, citation rate per paper, H-index, International Research Network (IRN Index)
Ranking Highlights: -Australia is the country with the fourth highest number of subjects on the list - 812 colleges and universities have programmes ranked in subject and academic areas where they have not previously been listed. - U.S. institutions lead in 28 of the 51 subject rankings. Harvard and MIT ranked first in 12 subjects. , - The top places in 13 subjects are all UK institutions, of which six are from Oxford University. - Iceland, Armenia and Uzbekistan make the list for the first time.

In general, the subject ranking list is more inclined to the evaluation of academic elements, and the global ranking of the selected major can be seen more intuitively. The QS comprehensive ranking can more comprehensively reflect the strength of the university. Overall, the subject rankings of Australian universities performed well.
