  1. Hi everyone. I have a question I hope you can help me with; I am going back to school next years so I can get an occupation on the SOL since my current occupation (Dietitian) is no longer on the list. So I am thinking of getting a BSc degree in: Nursing, Physiotherapy or Occupational therapy. Nursing isn't my first choice though since I wouldn't like to work with injuries or something like that (but I would do it anyway just to get the best opportunity to move to Australia). Can somebody tell me if it is much easier to move to Australia if you are a nurse or is being in physio or OT just as "easy"? Also I saw on Seek.com.au that Nursing is divided into different areas such as: Aged care, Management,.... Where I live we don't have different schools (except for Midwifery) - we only have "Nursing". So I was wondering if I would have to get some additional education in one of those areas? Thank you for your answers.

  9. On the new points list the points for Educational qualifications are below, have any diploma nurses applied since 1st July? If so have you been able to claim any points for your diploma, we're getting different opinions as to whether points can be claimed. Not sure whether points can be claimed because of a positive skills assesment? You have met the requirements for award of a: • bachelor degree, by an Australian educational institution; or • bachelor degree, awarded by an overseas educational institution or a recognised standard; or • post secondary qualification or award of a recognised standard as specified by the Minister in an instrument in writing. 15 points You have met the requirements for the award of a diploma by an Australian educational institution, or a diploma awarded by an overseas educational institution of a recognised standard. 10 points You have attained a qualification or award recognised by the relevant assessing authority in determining the applicant’s skills for their nominated occupation. 10 points Thank you

Currently we are living in the UK, when we do decide to move to aus, she will be applying for a Spouse visa, and hopefully will be granted a Perm. visa straight away. What she would like to find out is this: 1. If she studied Nursing here in the UK; How long will the course/s be and will she then be able to move to australia and get a job on those qualifications? 2. What specific course/s would she need to pursue in Nursing over here? OR 3. If we moved to Australia now; Could she study as a Nurse over there? And if so, which course/s would she need to pursue? Any info would be so helpful. Thank You

    Ielts!!? Visas!!? Help

    Hi all, I cant believe what i have done!!! iv only gone and sat the wrong IELTS test, i was wrongly advised and sat the general version of the test passed with flying colours then when i have sent the results off to the migration agent i was told that for my nursing registration in Oz i need to do the academic version!! how stupid am??? so another £115 and a pending exam to sit i feel like we have yet hit another brick wall as well as thinking is this happening to test us to see if we really want to do this!! OMG can anyone give me any advice for academic version of the test? Also our agent has said that because we have two small children we shouldnt be contemplating the 457 visa (as hopefully applying for 175 visa if pass this bloody test!) as its not really an option for families as if a job falls through you have to be out of the country in so many days... Help........ we have only just began the process of a 15 year dream only to be thinking of throwing the towel in already! Best wishes hayley, nige and boys x
