I am new to this brilliant forum and I am hoping some of you lovely people could help me out with a few things, firstly i'll tell you a little about my situation.
I am 25 years old, from the UK. I have a business degree in Events Management and currently work as an assistant manager for a health and beauty company. My sister moved to Perth September 2012 as her now finance moved over there a few years before with his parents who had enough points. He now has citizenship and an Australian passport. My sister went out on the year working visa, she didn't complete the 3 months working on the land as she applied for a spouse visa and is currently on a bridging visa until she hears back from the outcome of her application.
I am now wanting to move to Australia and I am wondering what my best options are. I am wanting to move in June 2015.
Should I apply for a working visa, complete the 3 months in order to get a second year visa? But then what happens once the second year is up?
What about a student visa? I know you can only work 20 hours per week when on this visa which is not a problem.
Should I complete a course in the UK for a job that is on the SOL eg a PGCE in teaching before I leave? But then do I have to have so many years experience working in that role?
Also I am thinking of possibly using a migration agent, Does anyone have any experience of using one? If so what are your thoughts and anyone you can recommend?
And lastly, what advice can you give me? Anything would be appreciated. I have spoken to people I know from various different age ranges who have done it however I am always willing to listen to more experiences, especially as all the people I know live in Perth, what is it like in other parts of the country?
Many Thanks for your help
