Australia is looking to bring more trained scientists and mathematicians to its shores, according to the Australian Government, who recently updated their list of in-demand skilled occupations for migration.
The latest version of Australia’s Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) has been released by the Australian Department of Jobs and Small Businesses. The updated list includes a broad range of occupations within science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines.
This is a great opportunity for anyone trained in the fields of agriculture, chemistry, food technology and marine biology, all of which are on the list.
Ranked in the world’s top 50, The University of Queensland (UQ), is one of Australia’s largest and most successful science groupings.
