Indians Graduates Critical of Australia
Indian doc slams post-study work ops, Australia
. A new documentary has criticised the lack of work opportunities for Indians in Australia after they graduate from Australian universities—raising questions over whether a recent extension to post-study work rights has gone far enough.
Sunshine and Shade
, which premiered last week at the Parramasala film festival (and will screen on Indian television), aims to show the reality of study in Australia – good and bad – following two Indian students throughout their study experience.
While the students enjoy aspects of their studies, both struggle with visas and finding work after they graduate – an experience director Ana Tiwary says leaves many students disenchanted with Australia.
“I think international students are our link to countries like India and China. They have access to those markets, they have access to investors from those countries that have vibrant economies,” said Tiwary.
