    Decided I need a change

    It is what it says on the tin. A holiday with some work rights. To stay permanent you would still need to qualify as a skilled worker.

    Did you move back to the UK & regret it?

    I am early 50's, though still consider mys of fairly young. Young enough in fact that I am taking advantage of the free university educations here to go and retrain for a new career. I am going to be a nurse. Scotland is actually fantastic for younger people and Glasgow and Edinburgh are both very young feeling. For example, Glasgow has one of the largest live music scenes in the UK, and a lot of the industry is now very tech based. Edinburgh has a very large computer game industry and Glasgow also has a lot of things like tech. Oddly, it is also the home of the U.K. space industry. I think a lot of young people are drawn by the more progressive policies here.

    Did you move back to the UK & regret it?

    We moved back in 2016 and have not regretted a single day being back. We found ourselves in Scotland in a very pretty little village so enjoy a very rural life. But, we have a small town just a few miles away and Glasgow is only half an hour away. Scotland is incredibly progressive, which suits us. NHS is wonderful here. Even dentists. Housing is very reasonable and general living costs also very low.

    That is not correct. Simple as that.

    It would depend on the visa. But if it is a 482, then far, very far from given.

    Pilbara with family ??

    I hav worked across Australia's mining regions and would be pretty hesitant in recommending it to someone who has not visited. The heat alone is extreme up there.

    IT occurs automatic when the current visa expires.

    Sponsorship!

    As Marisa says, yes, I personally know a lot of people Ho failed to gain PR and had to return home. I was one of nearly a dozen friends / acquaintances who moved around the same time. Less than half gained PR and I went to wave off a number at the airport. We have also seen many cases on the forum over the years. Particularly after a major shake up of the rules, which is often after an election and I believe there is an election coming soon.
  13. My advice would be to have a quick chat with a registered migration agent

    Shipping recommendations, please.

    We used Movecube and found it very good. It is amazing how much can be fit in.

    UK Education

    Normally, there is a requirement that they are resident in the UK for 3 years before attending university to be entitled to home student status. Otherwise they are treated as international students. However, some universities have waived this for some courses.
