Sydney News on January 1, Australian Eastern Time, the Federal Employment Department stated that there are already many accounting graduates in the job market who cannot find jobs, so the accounting profession should be removed from the priority list of Australian skilled immigrants.

"The job vacancy rate has reached the lowest level since the 2006 job index, and there is no sign of improvement." The Ministry of Employment said in the review report of this year's skilled immigrant occupation list submitted.

In addition, the Employment Department also cited a study by Deakin University, which stated that there is a surplus of accounting graduates from China, and there is an imbalance in the number of Australian and international students in this major.


Monash University researcher Bob Birrell said that although international students can apply for work visas after graduation, the idea that accounting is the road to permanent residence is still an important weight for Australian universities to recruit self-financed students.

"If the accounting profession is excluded from the list of skilled immigration occupations, it may have an impact on the number of students enrolled." He said.

It is reported that in 2012, all students studying accounting accounted for 61% of overseas students.
