    'no further stay'

    So how come some people have it put on student visa's and others don't? My friend and his twin both went over on student visa's. He had it put on his visa and his twin didn't. How does that make work?

    'no further stay'

    My oldest doesn't have to legally start school till 2015, but will miss 'kindy' and pre primary. My g/f finishes her courses in December 2014 so this should not she a problem. I understand what you mean about the tourist visa, but for the months prior to the start date we would be genuine tourist. I understand immigration might have a few words for us but with signed copies of my g/f acceptance letter in hand and a bank statement we thought this would be enough till we apply for a student visa around October time. I hope this answers some of your concerns ( they are ours to)

    'no further stay'

    Hi, I'm sorry if I'm being thick, but does anyone know why 'no further stay' is actually put on visa? Is it just random or is there some kind of rule book behind it? Me my partner and 2 kids are looking at going to Perth this Aug. My g/f has for herself onto a TAFE course that starts in February. We are going over early as my Dad's moved out there some years ago, so would be nice to spend the time with him. Also so the kids can adjust to the hot weather as it happens instead of throwing them into 30+. We have the funds for the the first year of the course and enough money for all our other expenses. We are hoping to go over on a holiday visa in August and apply for the student visa whilst in Perth. Just a bit worried about the no further stay? Are we likely to have it on our holiday visa so we can't apply for our student visa in Perth? Any help would be appreciated

    apprenticeship

    Doesn't it depend what apprenticeship you want. The person that has mentioned it to me runs his own garage and is a part of repco. He has told me that WA is struggling to employ mechanics in garages as they all go for the mega bucks up in the mines. This has happened to his last 5 apprentice's.

    University fees

    University fees

    No not dependant, but it states on visa burea website and when he spoke to his agent that non dependant family like a son/daughter over 18 years of age may apply for pr through his visa once he has completed two years. So back to my original question....

    University fees

    Hi just a random question! My dad is in Perth and in two years me my partner and my 2 children can follow through him (when he applies for permanent residency). My question is that when we make the move does my girlfriend who wants to be a nurse pay international fee's or Australian citizen fee's if we travel over as a permanent resident? Thanks in advance for any information.

    Official nurses thread!

    Hi, my girlfriend is currently at uni studying nursing and is due to finish July 2012. I was just wondering how long after she qualifies should we apply to move to Perth? Thanks for any info

    Is this the right choice?

    Yeah we know it is, but we think it's more hassle than it's worth. With the pregnancy we don't want to cause any unnecessary stress. Plus it gives us more of a assentive to move, if the education systems like that now what it gonna be like when our children grow up?? They would probably welcome her with open arms if she were paying for the course. She is doing access course to university over in Australia before she starts her course and will goto university if we can afford it and she gets the grade! If we can't afford it or she doesn't get the grades we can always come back here for uni and try again once she's qualified. Plus if this is case it gives us a year non holiday out there to see if we like it ( we'v had a 4 months out there as a holiday and loved every minute). Everything will be total different than a holiday.

    Is this the right choice?

    Am I right in thinking both of us can work up to 20 hours a week and she can work full time in non term time? If this is correct any one got any advice or experience that may help us.

    Is this the right choice?

    Hi All. My girlfriend wants to study nursing. She has tried countless access to higher education courses over here in the UK. all of these have been cancelled for various reasons, but mainly because the other students are dropping out. So this year she decided that she was gonna do normal college with the school leavers hoping so would get to finish a course unlike the past 3 attempts. She got accepted on to the courses she wanted to do. A couple of weeks later we found out she was pregnant so we informed the college of this, they weren't best pleases and removed her off the course. We have had no luck at other colleges due to her being pregnant. We have given up on the British education system and decided to try for Australia because this was our goal. She applied for a college in Perth and within 2 days got a reply saying she been granted a place starting in April 2012. This isn't a problem because our second child is due in December. With this the college asked would she like to reply to any uni's and they could help. Within 2 weeks she got 2 conditional offers. Starting January 2013! We know the College course is gonna cost us about $17.5k and then university around $22k a year for 3/4 years plus the money we need go show for living cost to get the visa granted. Do we need the $35k it says we need if we are planning on living with family? My family have said we can live them for as long as we need rent free (just buy or own food). So do we really need that much?? We won't have the money for uni before we leave this country so hoping to save for it whilst we are working. Do people who have experienced this think this is possible?? Sorry about the stupidly long thread.
