    189 Australian Study Query

    Hi, thank you for replying. My qualifications (bar one) are all after/during work periods. I continued my studies alongside my work. Same would go for topping up. As I dont have a full BSc i wanted to gain that before applying. Looking at the Visa it doesn't state that qualifications need to be before... sorry I found that confusing. Thank you for your help.

    189 Australian Study Query

    Hello All, Apologies if this has been answered somewhere. I have tried looking and struggled to find the right answer. So I am currently researching into the 189 Visa requirements and have come stuck on the overall education and Australian study requirement section. I aim to top up my FdSc to a full BSc this year in the UK. However, I am confused as to whether my BSc has to be closely related to my occupation (which I have been in for over 8 years and intend to use as my skilled Visa application). Yes it's on the skilled list. - Horse trainer. I'm considering topping up onto either an Animal Science, Wildlife Conservation or Equine science degree. Would this affect my application depending on the degree type considering my occupation is Equine based? Is it best I follow the equine top up route? Secondly, I have not studied in Australia nor had intended to until I had moved out there. As part of the Visa application it asks whether you've done so, is this vital to your application? Must you do it or have people been accepted without having done this? Sorry if any of this is confusing but also thank you very much for any advice you have. Hana

    I see! Well I've got supporting documents that they listed to prove I'll be coming back so all is good! go Walkabout look pretty good! Out backers seems good too! You should be okay but yes best to check. You're very organised! Glad you've finally taken the plunge! Scary as hell but exciting at the same time isn't it?!

    Yeah I've read through the T&Cs three or four times & all seems good apart from that section. I've not been asked to provide anything yet but I'm definitely coming back after my first year so for me it's perfect! Shame that they don't make it more obvious to backpackers who think they are getting a good deal!! Have you sorted yours yet?

  9. Hi everyone! Been thinking about bout potential costs for hiring a wagon/van to do Melbourne to Adeleide via the great ocean road. I'd obviously like to share the costs with someone! Does anybody have have any tips and/or stories on the best deals for hiring in Aus? Any pitfalls you savvy travellers have found out that I should be aware of? Any places to avoid? I've had a look at various places such as travellers-auto barn etc. but seem to have less choice in Melbourne and Adeleide for pick ups/drop offs or maybe I cannot seem to find the right ones! Obviously money is an issue so any tips on saving would be fabulous! Thanks in advance! Hana :cute:

    Definitely! I'll be heading back to Sydney for Xmas & NY so I'll be around around the weather?! Just chance it I've got a very vague outline of what I'd like to do but I'm not fussed if I don't stick to it! Lol.

    Stacey - I'll be in Melbourne at that time for the racing but very shortly after I'm planning on hiring a wagon/camper van to travel the Great Ocean Road to Adeleide - if you're free and would like to do the same shout! We could swap number etc im so glad you've finally starting getting things together! So excited for you ?

    Second Year WHV & the impending changes.

    I've sent an email so hopefully I'll get a response soon! Ive heard the same. I'm hoping to at least get started - I've been told that apparently it will count towards it but after the changes come in you'll need to comply with the new rules. Fingers crossed something becomes more apparent!

    Backpack or suitcase?

    I'm taking a suitcase and a daypack I spoke to my friend who is currently in Melbourne & he said that he wish he took a suitcase! Think it's down to personal preference
