  1. Legal executives in the UK are practically solicitor’s assistants- as you said they deal with smaller issues and specialise in one area of law. Their rights of audience is also different to that of a solicitors! Do you know any more about the course?
  2. After a little research I have found that there is actually a direct apprenticeship to take and qualify as a solicitor in the UK. It is a five to six year course post A-Levels! " Thanks to these law apprenticeships school leavers now have a direct route to qualifying as a solicitor without having to go to university." https://www.prospects.ac.uk/jobs-and-work-experience/job-sectors/law-sector/law-apprenticeships
  3. I realise there is no apprenticeship to directly take you straight through to qualified as I mentioned above but there are apprenticeships in which you can take as an alternate option to university, then quite clearly you go beyond that.
  4. We’ve been living together over a year. Thanks for the advice on applying in the UK, I wasn’t aware of that!
  5. Thanks for the advice. In the UK apprenticeships are a lot different so obviously I wouldn’t know, anyone can get an apprenticeships. I knew I wouldn’t be eligible for any loan. Thank you.
  6. I currently live with my Australian boyfriend in the UK. We’ve been together for 2 years. So there is no matter of whether the relationship lasts nor any worries of a visa as I can apply eventually for a partner visa and then ongoing to a permanent visa. My main query is with the work, jobs and a career. I want to move ASAP and not start a 3 year course here or it will long out the process even more!
  7. I'm planning to go over soon for around 6 months only, so then I will be applying for a working holiday visa. After that it depends on my options to whether I need a student visa or a working visa.
  8. Hi, I am currently studying A Levels in the UK, England. My boyfriend and I are thinking of moving to Australia in the near future, he is fully Australian and his family live there also. After I have finished my A-levels, this is where my problem starts, I have no idea of any of the methods in which I can train. I am fully English myself so I can imagine this could be quite awkward. I have tried looking into this but I cannot find a lot of information, my plan in the UK was to finish my A-levels, move on to a higher apprenticeship and continue from there until trained and qualified. Is an apprenticeship in Law an option in Australia, NSW? Or do you have to go university? If a junior contract is available, are they easy to find? If not is there any advice on how university would work for me? And how long either of these processes will take? Will becoming a solicitor eventually be an option to me in Australia or is it the end of what I wish to do? Please leave ANY advice you have as I am completely stuck!! Thank you in advance, Whitney.
