  1. What to bring...such a conundrum!

    Those kitchen sets are a great idea!
  2. Positive Emigrating To Australia True Life Stories

    Love this message of positivity and all the emigration stories. Hoping one day to post our story here!
  3. What's your dream house

    Oh how I love the Brissie Queenslanders. Stayed in my Aunt and Uncle's many years ago and fell in love with it. Love period properties in the UK too..first home was built 1910. However, where we are looking in Melbourne it is all modern and new which my hubby loves...
  4. On our way.....

    No advice as we are still in the process of trying to secure our visa but good luck. We thought about Perth and loved Mandurah from our online research. In the end it was Melbourne for us due to work opportunities for me. Good luck with the move...very exciting!
  5. IELTS books for free...

    Hi, have pm'd you...
  6. Occupation ceilings...???

    I really don't understand this...perhaps someone can explain? If you submit your EOI and the occupation ceiling is already at its maximum...what happens? I feel (probably unduly) worried about this and just wanted to check it out...
  7. IELTS books for free...

    Hi, I saw a few days ago that someone had posted saying they would send on their used test books. I also have some that are now going spare...(newest version with CD's) if anyone is interested. Let me know if you missed out the other day.
  8. Any UK Clinical Psychologists out there?!

    How is everyone is getting on? I have now lodged my skills assessment paperwork with the APS. Not sure about timescales for processing but things are moving forward. Has anyone had any recent experience and therefore has an idea how long it could take?
  9. A few steps forward...

    Plan is to head to Melbourne and have been looking at some of the newer Western suburbs. Thanks for the AHPRA info. The solicitor I used was a notary. It said on the stamp she used 'notary public' I think? Is this sufficient?
  10. A few steps forward...

    Just checking in after a productive week! Documents assessed and certified for my skills assessment by a local solicitor (took just 50 minutes but cost me £120!) And, got the necessary scores in my ielts (L-9, R-9, W-8, S-9 with an overall 9) 😁 Chuffed and ready for the next stage! Happy Friday all 👍
  11. What to bring...such a conundrum!

    Just thinking about all the items we need day to day in the kitchen and elsewhere and wondering what people have done. We plan to ship the big items i.e. food processor, casserole dishes, pots pans etc. However, thinking it would be best to buy things like plates, glasses, knives and forks etc. when we arrive. I just can't seem to get my head around what we need to ship or not. Pots you would need right away but don't want to leave ours behind as they are good ones, bought for our wedding. Maybe some helpful organised person can advise?
  12. IELTS in Edinburgh yesterday...feeling excited!

    Thanks, I hope so! Good luck to all awaiting results 👍
  13. Any UK Clinical Psychologists out there?!

    Excellent! I have sent a request to join via the page. Thanks so much for advising me of it!
  14. Any UK Clinical Psychologists out there?!

    Hi all, Finding this thread so helpful and just wondered if anyone had any updates. I am hoping to submit my skills assessment to the APS as soon as I pass IELTS at the required level. Would be lovely to hear how you are all getting on and in what type of jobs you are employed in (government, private, LD, adult mental health etc).
  15. Hi all, Sat my IELTS for the first time yesterday in Edinburgh. For some reason, it is the thing that has made it all seem real. Not sure why paying the agents fee didn't do this for me, but there you go! Most of those who sat it with me were young (I felt like an oldie) and perhaps doing it for educational/study purposes, as it was the academic test. Got my fingers and toes crossed now for a pass first time. I need to get all 7's for my professional registration. Once I get the marks I need, we will be submitting my professional reg. application. After that, PR visa application. Anyone else on a similar timeline?
