About the Project

Project summary

Focusing on perceptions of English usage and intercultural capabilities, this project investigates issues around employment of international graduates from Australian universities into the professions with skill shortages. In a longitudinal study, it collects survey and biographical data about the employment expectations and experiences of nine cohorts of students transitioning from three Australian universities into work. It analyses academic pedagogies and support for international students, and business recruitment practices of international graduates and how these are mediated by federal policy. It will contribute to national higher education, migration, and recruitment policies and practices.
