    Moving to far North Queensland (Cook Town)

    Hi, no we didn’t. A opportunity came up in Sydney so we moved here just over a year ago. More opportunities for us as a family

    Early Years Teacher study in oz

    Hey, so might be a long shot but is there anyone on here who has studied in Oz as early Years Teacher and gone through the visa process? Or anybody who has applied for the 190 nsw as early Years Teacher and can tell me the time period from eoi to invite?

    Moving to oz on a student visa

    Yes exactly, I’ve spoken to so many people and there seems no way round the 0-2 years experience as the U.K. PGCE just doesn’t cover it. At least the degree in OZ i will be sure to have the right qualification. Also if Early Years Teacher did come of the list there are other occupations I could get sponsored in with the bachelor degree like Child Centre Manager or Lead Educator (regional of course)

    Moving to oz on a student visa

    There are a few different reasons why but the main one being if I study in oz I will get extra points for the visa and as I will be nearly 40 once qualified I could do with the points, also to qualify here as a Early Years Teacher who have to do the PGCE which I’ve heard can be very difficult to get onto and can take a couple of years attempt to get a place, also my daughter is 6 now and I would like to go over while she’s still young, also the landlord is selling our property so seems like it’s a good time to go it’s not like we’re having to sell a house or anything like that. I’ve spoken to various people on different forums and there’s a lot of people who have done the student route with kids and got by, so I’m thinking, yes it will be a struggle but it also seems possible

    If you do the course with TAFE in Sydney they subsidise the school fees to 5000aud per year, if you did the same course in QLD you would be paying 12,000aud. TAFE also have a really good deal with Medibank so offer cheaper medical insurance

    It will be NSW, my friend is currently living in the Hills District as it’s more affordable housing wise. She only started the course in January and has found it no problem getting work for the 20 hours in centres as there crying out for educators, they are even offering full time hours in the holidays which is reassuring

    Hi, thanks really interesting read. My friend has recently gone out too on the student visa with children, doing the same degree as me. I totally understand it’s a massive risk it’s whether we take that risk or not. The uni sets you up with paid employment for the 2 days your not at uni so quite confident I can get the 20 hours per week.

    Yes I know they were referring to children’s school fees so was I. Unfortunately my student fees are a lot more than 5000 aud

    Moving to oz on a student visa

    I am quite aware of how long i need to study for to complete my degree, the cost of school and medical fees, the type of work we can get for part time hours. I’ve done my research. I was more looking for people’s personal experience who may have done it and been there as a student. Thanks for the info Jenki75 really helpful. For the degree I’m doing the school fee will be 5000aud per year so not too bad. Did you work part time too? If so how did you find it fitting in with your study and children?

    Yes I have looked into this and once the Degree is completed I will be able to apply for PR as Early Years Teacher no experience required (that’s if it stays on the list) my husband will have the same work rights as me 20 hours per week and full time in the holidays
