  1. Thanks All for the great advice. Looks like the credits have to be made up fro 440 to 480 and we have to show 4 years of study.. sorry for the misleading title as my daughter did 3 years BSC in Chemistry with QTS Status. Now looking for Courses here in OZ to satisfy the 4 years of study..dont want to risk just topping up the credits in uk as they could come back and say it not 4 years...etc etc..however this is an expensive option as she will be an overseas student here in oz and the course for the year is around 25k aud. ouch,,,,,expensive lesson for anyone out there...Plan for your older kids as they will alway change their bloody mind..!
  2. No she was with us on our 457, we have both gone PR and now citezens whilst she was back in the UK studying and working.
  3. PGCE IS 3 YEARS FULL TIME , Supposed to be equivelant to the 4 years degree. I have seen other students on here and other forums who have got the AITSL confirmation. Frustrasting and the fees to bring her over as an international student are over $25k. Also the child route visa 101 is not an option as she has been working in the uk and not depandent on us..if she had bummed around and not done anything and been asking us for cash over the past 12 months we could bring her in..Go figure..:-(
  4. Hello, My daughter completed the 3year degree a couple of years ago and now teaches in a secondary school as a chemistry teacher in the UK. She has been accredited by the NSW teaching authority and approved to teach in NSW. Now here is the problem, her accrediation was refused by AITSL as it was on a 3 year degree and the transcripts provided show 440 points and not the 480 points on a traditional 4 year degree. We have provided letters from the uni that this degree is recognized as the equivelant to the traditional 3year chemistry degree and 1 year teaching degree...just that pgce does this in 3 years. Very frustrating seeing all the posts on here showing all the successful pgce entrants when we are having such problems. To make matters worse we are both Australian citizens and my daughter was out here for her year 11/12 and got 96.3% in her HSC. She only went back to the uk to do her degree and get some teaching experince. To make things worse if she had sat around in uk done nothing we would be able to bring her back on a student visa or. Hold visa as a sole defendant, but we can't do that as she is self sufficient and not reliant on us.... Very frustrated, any advice gratefully recieved.
