  1. I am not an Englishman, I'm an Australian interested in the experiences of Australian immigrants. Presently, my honours thesis revolves around examining cultural adaption, religiosity and mental health in Australian immigrants (i.e. international students, immigrants in Australia or Australians born to immigrant parents). In order to gather data I am using a survey, which takes 10 minutes to complete and is anonymous, which asks about an individuals experiences in Australia, their religious beliefs and practices, and their mental health regarding depression, anxiety and stress. Given that this board is centred around Australian immigrants, I believe it is a reasonable place to post my survey. If anyone is willing, I would very much appreciate it if you could please complete my thesis survey using the following link: https://rmit.au1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0JJkpqRcgj3FIKF. All responses are very much appreciated, and I hope to expand on the current understanding of immigrant experiences and mental health in Australia. You can also share the survey with anyone you believe might be interested in doing it if you wish.

    academic assessment

    Hi everyone I have just sent off my application for academic assessment to AEI-NOOSR. I have applied for an academic assessment on a uk BA (hons) degree. I need this assessment for a company to start sponsorship for me and my family. They wont start the procedure until it has been approved. has anyone sent an application into these people that can give me a clue on how long approx it will take. i understand every case is different but some kind of clue would be good so im not watching the post for the next 6 months :biggrin:. i have asked AEI-NOOSR but they wouldnt give any answers. some indication would be good and would settle me for a while :biglaugh:. Thank you xx
  11. Hi I am starting to apply for a 175 Visa and will be applying to get my skills assessed by the CPA over the next month or so. I need to sit my IELTS and contacted my local centre for dates but I am uncertain which module I need to apply for. Please could someone confirm whether I need to sit the Academic or General Training module? Many thanks

    IELTS Academic.

    Hello members, I am really tensed now as I have taken the IELTS academic and not the general version. Will this be acceptable be the CO ? Really worried now. :unsure:
  16. I know there are lots of threads on this but wanted to get an up to date advise. We are on a very tight time frame to get our state sponsorship in, we can not get a general ielts test in our time frame but can get an academic one? On the ielts website it states that it is the general one for migration but can anyone confirm if the academic one will be accepted? Thanks
  17. Submitted my 175 visa app on 20th April but read the bit on the website about July changes requiring accountants to have IELTS 7 Not impressed as my understanding was that as a UK passport holder there was no requirement for IELTS (at the time I submitted) but a post lodgement query confirms that I need to sit this in order that they treat me as being on the CSL. That will be over four months wasted by the time I can sit the test and get the results. Rant over! Real question is do I need to do the Academic or General test? My understaning is General is all that is required but I could get an earlier date in Edinburgh if I do the academic. Does it matter? I believe the Academic is harder!!

    General or Academic IELTS?

    Hi, I wonder if anyone can help clarify something regarding the IELTS? I'm a nurse and have had my skills assessed and am registered with the ANMC. Hubby and I are still 5 points short on our visa application so I'm going to do the IELTS for the extra points. Really looking forward to that! Not!! The question I have is, which do I need to take, the general or academic test? I've just spoken to somebody at the ANMC who said that because I've already had my skills assessed by them that as far as they are concerned it's just the general I need to sit. However the guy I spoke to at the local IELTS centre suggested that I'd have to do the academic. I know I should just take the ANMC's word for it but I'd just like to be reassured that all I need to do is the general test. Call me over cautious but you know what it's like :wacko: Thanks, Lou

Im kind of stumped with this and also flockin frustrated TBH :wacko: Any advice from anyone in similar boat much appreciated. where am I going wrong?? Cheers, JK

    Academic Research & Age

    Hi All I'm a newbie so apologises if I mess this up. My partner and I are looking to migrate to Oz next year (I am from the UK). I have just passed 45 - yep stupid I know (he is just under 40). To increase our chances I was wondering if I might still apply for some type of Visa given that I could do so as an academic researcher (PhD and research experience) - if I was to get a research grants with a University in Australia - or whether my age completely cuts me off and my only option is as a partner? Thanks - any advice would be welcomed. T

    IELTS Academic Test - help!

    I have to do the IELTS Academic test next Saturday! I can't get into a General test until November and my OH really wants to get the visa app in before then so he's booked me onto the Academic version in Portsmouth. Does anyone have any experience of doing this version? If I don't get the 25 points we can't go! I have got a degree and I'm a teacher (primary) so at least I'm in the world of education but somehow that isn't making me feel any more confident! Would love to hear from anyone who's done this test. Alex
  24. Hi all, My boyfriend is from the UK and thinking of the option of skilled migration to AU. I understand for his skills assessment he will need to provide a copy of his Uni certificate. Are academic transcripts a must? Or would the Uni certificate suffice? Trouble is the Uni he went to changed to a different name and he graduated something like 15 years ago so we are not even confident we'll be able to get the academic certificate back from the Uni administration - we will try that - but very skeptical whether the transcript records will be available for retrieval as well. Any advice if transcripts are absolutely essential? Thanks!
  25. Hi ya Peeps Can anyone help with what is probably a daft question. My daughter and her boyfriend are aiming to apply for student visas and are currently preparing their applications for the Uni and TAFE courses. On the application forms it states 'full academic transcripts' are required along with completion certificates. l know they will get their completion certificates when their courses are completed but what is meant by 'academic transcripts'? Sorry if this question means l am having a 'senior blonde' day :unsure: :confused: Thanks, Lyn x
