Story Topic and Angle
Recently, the Australian government announced that international higher education graduates with eligible qualifications will be granted an extra two years of post-study work rights. This is undoubtedly good news for some international students. On the other hand, this initiative also stimulates international students to study in Australia to some extent. It not only alleviates labor shortage in Australia but also increases the income of the education industry.
In view of the above situation, I plan to write a news article to report the impact of this policy on international students. My main interviewee is an IT major student who is about to graduate. He will talk about his views on this policy and the reality of finding a job in Australia as an international student.
According to the survey，26% of all tertiary students in Australia are from other countries. The proportion of international graduate students pursuing master’s degrees is even higher, at 49.8 per cent. The promulgation of this policy has not only affected international students, but also local students and enterprises.
The policy was introduced in mid-February this year.
This is a local story.
Publication and Target Audience
I will post the story in ABC, which is one of Australia’s largest media organizations. It has broad influence and audience. Besides, it covers a wide range of topics and formats, including news, current affairs, drama, comedy, and documentaries.
The target audience for this story is international students as well as local students and businesses in Australia. For international students, this policy is relevant to them. For local students, it may mean more competition.
