International students who study in Canada or Germany prefer settling in those countries to any other OECD countries. 60% of international students studying in 2015 in Canada and Germany settled there.
Australia, Estonia, and New Zealand were able to retain 50% of their international graduates. Every two in five international graduates studied in France and Japan stayed back in the country. 15% or fewer students remained in Denmark, Italy, Norway, and Slovenia.
OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) 38 member countries have put in a wide range of policies to retain international graduates after completing their studies.
Except for the countries Germany and Canada, no other countries were successful in retaining international graduates.
By using PGWP Canada provides fair chances to international students to work even after completing their studies by giving Canadian work permits for up to 3 years.
PFWP is exempt from LMIA (Labour Market Impact Assessment) requirements for international graduates from an authorized post-secondary school or a school secondary school. These schools offer qualifying study programs for a minimum of 8 months.
The study programs that last between 8 months to 2 years will grant the graduate the to obtain a PGWP that lasts as per the length of the study.
International graduates whose study program is for 2-years or more will be qualified for a 3-year permit.
With this work experience, foreign graduates can increase their CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) scores which will help while applying for a Canada PR visa through the Express Entry System.
