Hi Everyone, I browsed through the previous topics, but I couldn't find a similar thread. I am a PhD student and am expecting to finish my studies by the end of 2013. My visa (postgraduate research) is valid until 01/12/2014. My goal is to apply for a State Nominated Visa as a Victorian PhD graduate under occupation 234599 (Life Scientist). 1) Am I able to stay on my visa until it’s validity date, even after I graduate? If yes, can I undertake employment as well? I think the answer to this is yes, but I can't find it in writing anywhere. All answers I am able to find are about situations where your visa expires before you finish study, not the other way around. 2) If VETASSESS is evaluating my PhD, can I apply for assessment before I obtain the degree, or do I need to wait until I’ve finished it? 3) If the answer to the above is that I have to finish my PhD first and then evaluate it, what kind of bridge visa do I need to be on during VETASSESS’ evaluation time? I still would not have applied for PR, so I cannot be on a bridging visa. 4) My Bachelors degree is in the same field as my PhD and applicable for the same ANZCO code. If I evaluate it through VETASSESS (because I can do so without waiting to finish the PhD), do I still need to evaluate the PhD as well? Thanks! Nicola
Hi all, Having a bit of a rough time over here at the moment... My partner can't find work in her field despite being here in Adelaide. She is an Aquatic Resource Management masters graduate with an Honours and Bachelor of Science in Marine Biology... Fresh from Uni so no experience. We are really struggling with finding her a job, and scared that she will miss the boat if she doesn't get employed soon. We are worried that if the situation doesn't get better, she will have to return to the UK to work whilst I will have to stay here... Panic has set in... Does anyone have any contacts in Marine Biology / Aquatic Science in SA. Or even in the whole of Australia? We've been looking for 11 months now to no avail... All want experience, which is great if you can get it... Please help :confused:
Hi, I'm new to the site and am wondering if anyone knows how to go about looking for work experience or field work out in Oz.
