    Where to go in Victoria ?

    Hi, we are looking to get state sponsorship by Victoria but are unsure of where the best place to settle would be anybody have any ideas or areas, ideally near a beach and amenities bit vague I know. Any help gratefully received ! :biggrin::cute:
  3. Hi my partner is in the process of getting his skills assessment application together to send off to Victoria University. We were just wondering what sort of extra information to put in. His current employer has the reference form, so once he has completed that we will be ready to send it off. Just wondering also if anybody else has used Victoria Uni. We are going to send copies of his certificates, some video clips of him performing certain tasks on a dvd, and some photo's. Obviously fill out the forms, but is there anything else we should send? Also am I right in thinking you can only use Victoria Uni by applying through the post and not online? Many thanks

    University in Victoria

    Hi there. Just been looking at entry requirements for University in Victoria using Scottish qualifications. Notice that they ask for three highers now rather than four. (My son has done four and is studying for another 2 plus an advanced higher). Why is the entry requirement so low in Oz - is it because the Scottish courses are more intense than year 12. Just wondering?

    Victoria or Queensland????

    We are moving 18th October with two hairy dogs and two cats. We lived in Melbourne for nearly 2 years about 5 years ago so always thought that's where we would return too. Now friends of ours are moving to Brisbane and I'm beginning to wonder if we should just try there instead? The heat for the dogs is putting me off but then Melbourne gets hot too. We would get a nicer house in Queensland (looking at runaway bay) but then a longer commute etc... I'm not really concerned about finding work, think we should be okay in both states. I know in the grand scheme of things it's a very nice decision to have to make. Just wondering if anyone had any thoughts?
  13. Hi All, You guys got any idea which sponsorship is quiet easy ? I'm an IT girl looking forward to get a sponsorship after the ACS assessment, I'm pretty sure that my ANZSCO end up in both Victoria & ACT SMPs. Provided it is in both, which state is pretty much easy for IT people? I mean if both ACT and VIC check the employability of the candidate with IT industry pannel which one is less tough? I went through VIC SS thread and it looks scary that Industry panel is turning down offshore applications with all relevant skills and even many years experience. I got only 4+ years experience but do not have any ties with Australia other than some friends in NSW & VIC. Since Victoria reject applicants who applied to another state, and ACT charge applicants a processign fee I have to make a choice by the time I get my ACS assessment. Highly appreciate your experience seniors!!!! :hug: Cheers Shima
  14. hi all, the OH and myself will be sruggling on the new points test to get to aus and for the extra points would have to look at going to a regional area but what are classed as regional areas:confused:. OH is a nurse and has family in point cook, so the closer to there the better, any ideas?
  15. Hallo to everybody, I would like to ask about an electrical licence in Victoria. I am an automation engineer (bachelor degree) qualified from overseas and recognised by engineers of Australia as an Engineering Technologist. While all this time waiting for my permanent visa, I am looking to various job advertisments related to my discipline. Some of these advs which are for control system technician or filed service technician for example and fits to my expierience , require an A class electrical licence. Do you think that in my case, having an engineering degree will overcome this requirment? Thank you in advance.

    Blogging our way across

    Hi Everybody, I just wanted to thank everybody who contributes and runs this site it is quite simply an amazing source of information. It has helped me and my fiancé immensely and as such we wanted to give a little something back. We have decided to set up a little blog of our move across the pond to Melbourne later this year. We are going to cover everything that we encounter during this move and hopefully it will help some people thinking or even making the move to Australia. We will also cover our life after moving and if indeed this is right move after all. Our blog can be found at http://somethingbeautifulthiswaycomes.blogspot.com/ We will be cross referencing a lot of stuff back to here as well to make it a little easier to find those hard to answer questions. By the way my fiance is an aussie and grew up in Melbourne for 20 odd years. So if you want have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. Cheers Tina

    Mountain biking/cycling in Victoria

    Hi, I've been living in Melbourne for over a year now, I really enjoy cycling and was wondering if anyone would like to join me. I use the bike lanes around the city a lot and sometimes venture further afield to the mountains. I'm into most forms of cycling so let me know if you're interested. John
