      I'd think most places are favourable to Scotland, they're just grateful to have moved!

      What about the guy who was a mature student in the uk whilst his wife worked. They were moving to oz after realising they would be 31k better off a year once they moved ......

      of course the programme glossed over the fact they were both going to be working in oz

      so go from one job to two and double your income ........ well duh!

      I find it hard to believe that everyone on the show would be better off financially in oz.

      ive done 3 years in Sydney and the rest in the uk. I think things were pretty similar TBH in both countries for us. The show obviously converts everything to pounds which I suppose the general public need them to do and the rate now makes salaries look more than they are

      but then again expenses and income are counted aren't they and everyone reckons they'd be 1000 plus a month better off in oz

      I have seen episodes where the participants did discover they were worse off. I recall there was an IT specialist who stayed in the UK because of the figures.

      We religiously watch WDU and have thought about applying to the show but they wouldn't want us. We already know we want to go and don't really have close family and friends to cause issues. Also our house is a work in progress so would not be suitable for getting a valuation in. We are off to visit Perth in February half term though to show the kids what it's all about. We can't wait. We do have some awkward decisions to make about the right timing with myself graduating with my masters this year and kids coming up to GCSE age.
      But like I say with no family issues don't think they would be interested.
      Main applicant : Wife, Nurse, Fit2work :applied 10/3/16, received 21/3/16. AHPRA sent 14/03/16, delivered 24/3/16.acknowledged receipt 30/03/16. registration in principle granted. 14/5/16 presented in person(Perth) 17/10/16. AHPRA full registration 18/10/16.
