Rosie R posted a topic in EducationSo I've been living in England for around 6 years now (Born in UK, moved to Tassie, lived there for 8 years - up to grade 3 - , moved back to England - year 4 to year 10 (present)) My family is thinking of moving back to Aussie after I finish my GCSE's (year 11 finals) as I am currently near the end of year 10. We are not sure when/if we will be moving so I will most likely be doing college prep/searching for colleges in the UK but I do not know whether or not I will actually be going to college in the UK before we move to Taz. I don't really know much about Australian high school qualifications and stuff so I do not know what the GCSE equivalent is or what it means. I do want to go to college (idk if its university in Taz) though but I do not know what qualifications I need to be able to get into the colleges and whether my GCSE grades will be enough. I will be 15 doing my GCSE's and at least 16 when moving. Should I instead make sure I complete my college/year 12 A-Levels before moving or will I be fine with my completed GCSE qualifications? Any help would be appreciated as to what the schooling system is in Australia (i.e. primary school -> highschool -> college/uni etc.) and what I would need to do to be able to get into colleges. Sorry if this is confusing, I wasn't sure how to word it. Let me know what you have to offer to this topic, thanks!
My daughter is currently at the end of year 10 (15 years old) and will be starting year 11 in September. One year from now she will be finishing year 11 and completing her exams. Would it be best to make the move at the end of year 11 or after her A-levels? (A-levels are years 12 and 13). I understand that schools in Australia have different timings and holidays, so I would like to know at which point in the year we'd be moving to, and what you would suggest. Any personal experience would be great to hear too! Thanks a lot.
Hi We are looking to move to Canberra (most likely) my husband has been offered a job in Fyshwick. Our daughter was not previously coming with us but now she thinks she would like to. She is 17yrs old now will be 18 in Nov 2011. She will be completing her AS levels this year so is only half way through her a-levels. Can anyone shed any light on what she can do once in Australia? She would like to continue education possibly going to uni but not sure where she should start having only done half her a-levels. Would she have to do 2 years of college or could she just do a final year? Would a foundation course for degree be possible? I am mega confused and she wants to be able to go to school or not come with us. Any idea of costs as I am assuming even if she attends state school as a migrant she would have to pay or am I wrong? Thanks muchly Candice
