  1. So 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!

    GCSE schools and college age 16

    My son is in year 11 and currently doing his GCSE's, he is 16. If we wait until he has done them before we go (finish June) Will he go to school or college there when we arrive? He would like to do something sports related. Am I doing the right thing letting him do his GCSEs first? Any advice or information on where I can find on about school or college entry would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    School at 16 - Or is it college?

    Hello, this is my first question (probably of many...) We are looking at moving to Australia in 2016 when my son has finished his GCSE's - Can anyone tell me what level of schooling he would go into? Would it be college? And when do they take exams and get ready for university? And is the school year any different? i.e.. does it go from September to July like in England? - thank you

    Mount Eliza Secondary College

    We are heading to Melbourne in December to the Mornington/Mount Eliza area and have looked at a couple of school websites. Our daughter is 15 in January so unsure on the Year she will start in (currently in Year 10 in UK). We are going to do a tour of Mount Eliza Secondary College. Does anyone have any children at this school or have any information they can share? Thanks
  12. Our soon to be 17 year old boy is extremely gifted education wise with 11 GCSE passed and 9 of those straight A or A*. Our visa should be in place to permanently emigrate next January on an investor visa and we will be buying a business. Our quandary is should we move over in January ready for the new school year in Oz where our son will spend one year in Higher education (we believe) before entering University in Perth. Or should we wait until he completes this school year in the UK or even the year after next when he should leave 6th form with a bunch of top grade A levels? For his part he is happy to do what ever we want, he knows his future should lead to better opportunities in Oz in later life. Will his GCSE grades carry any weight in Australian education? Will just one year in Australian education give him grades he would otherwise get to choose a good University and course? If we wait another 2 years for him to complete his A level education here and he gets the grades we expect would that be better for him in Australia? (then what if he changes his mind or meets a girl? aaagghhh we could not leave him and that would change the plans for the family including our younger son who cant wait to get over there) We have friends in Perth with kids of a similar age but they have been there 5 years. Everything seemed so simple until these thoughts filled my head, you always want the best for your kids and I fear one wrong decision could affect the rest of his life

    I know this should be in the education thread but im not sure many people look in there so im just gonna put it here and if yous want to move it then thats fine. My question is in oz does everyone have to pay for their college courses?? Is there no such thing as a bursary over there and if there is I assume you have to be a PR to get one?? the course i want to do when i go over is 12,000 for the year

  23. We are moving to Perth in October. Our daughter is in her second year in college and will be visiting us from around December 16 through January 10. We want to take her to see and do as much as we can while she is on her visit because she may not get another chance to visit us during our short 2-3 year stay in Perth. What is the best way to see as much of Australia as we can on a budget during that time of year and where should we go? Her only request is that she wants to see the Great Barrier Reef (and meet guys that have an Australian accent...LOL). After that, we are open to just about anything. What airlines fly between cities within Australia? Which is the cheapest? Thanks in advance for your help.
