Default Two very different Visas

Despite the issues of shonky education recruiters and other people that have been involved in some less than satisfactory training establishments and that even two years training at a TAFE may not give employers an employee with skills they would expect, studying in Australia has never been guaranteed to provide immigration with permanent residency.

Students and General Skilled Migration
Australia has a well-deserved reputation for high-quality education and training. We continue to welcome overseas students, and appreciate the contribution they make to both academic life and the communities in which they live.

People who want to study in Australia may be granted a Student visa that entitles them to come to Australia on a temporary basis for a specified period to undertake study at an Australian educational institution. While many overseas students make a decision to apply for permanent residence upon completing their studies, this is an entirely separate process and there is no guarantee that, on the basis of having held a student visa, a person will meet the requirements to be granted permanent residence.

It is important to note that student visas are aimed at achieving an educational outcome. General Skilled Migration (GSM) on the other hand is predominantly driven by the labour market needs of Australia.
The criteria for grant of GSM visas can change in response to the changing economic circumstances of Australia. All applicants seeking to be granted a permanent GSM visa must meet the relevant criteria set out in the Migration legislation, regardless of whether or not they have previously been in Australia. It is important for student visa holders to note that any changes to the criteria for the grant of a GSM visa would not affect their Student visa conditions.

Students should not make educational choices solely on the basis of hoping to achieve a particular migration outcome, as the GSM program will continue to change and adapt to Australia’s economic needs.

Information about migrating to Australia as a skilled worker is available on the department's website.
See: Workers
People planning to study for the sake of immigration need to make themselves very aware of what regulations are at any time and yes they can be changed to reflect what is occurring on the planet and in Australia at any time.

As it is, the government does have a target for immigration numbers and it is only natural that they will monitor and legislate for anything that may threaten the soundness of the immigration program and ultimately the well being of Australia.

I would expect that any petition such as the one quoted will largely be ignored by the government.

I agree with this observation digger.

Taking such action however, is often therapeutic for many people as it makes them feel as if they are doing something positive in relation to an unsatisfactory situation in which they find themselves - perhaps blunting or releasing any pent up anger and thus circumventing other more harmful or radical actions being taken by the malcontent?
