    Torquay secondary education

    Hi All Now Covid restrictions have been lifted and our visas extended, we're back in the game for moving to Oz!! Quite fancying Torquay, Victoria and wondering if there's anyone out there that can give first hand advice on Surf Coast Secondary College? I have two girls that will likely go into Year 7 and Year 9 by the time we move. Looking at Better Education trend of the school it seems to be ok, but some first hand knowledge would really be appreciated. Belmont High School and Oberon High School seem the better schools stat wise, but on paper I think we'd prefer to actually live in Torquay (closer to the beach) and appreciate the schools are all zoned. Any feedback welcome. Thanks in advance. Jo
  3. Hey, so my child wants to study in the UK as they are unable to get domestic fees on the 491 visa as yet. We have been in oz for 9 months. If he was to do this and come back during term holidays, would it have any effect when we apply for the 191 visa? I'm aware citizenship would take a bit longer. Thank you in advance
  4. Hello. Can anyone help? I’m aged 45 and am a fully qualified and experienced SEN Teacher (Secondary) - mainly ASD. I know I would be able to apply for a skilled visa if I was under 45 but now I’m too old!! Does anyone have experience of being offered a teaching post with a sponsored visa? Has anyone got any advice? I have a partner, an 18 year old who’d like to go to uni in Australia and a 4 year old. Is this a pipe dream?!

    International student budgeting ~

    With many governments now relaxing their Covid guidelines on the International education sector, overseas students have started to return to their foreign campuses ~ https://www.moneycorp.com/en-au/news-hub/top-ten-budgeting-tips-for-international-students/
  6. As you saw from my last post there was a chance that because of my birthday I Would have to repeat a year of school. However I have several family members who are teachers and they said that the school would assess my ability and they decide if I should repeat a year or not. They were all unsure how long it would take to assess my ability. Anyone ever been in this situation?

    Repeating a year of School

    I’m currently a student (13) who is planning on moving to Melbourne in October. I am almost finished with school year 9 but because I’m born in August 2006, I will have to repeat a few months in year 8 and the whole of year 9! I’m not bothered about repeating a few months at the end of this year but I am about repeating year 9! I have been told that I have an exceptional ability in maths English and science and I have taken a look at the Australian maths curriculum for year 9 and I have completed almost all of the work this year. I have also looked at the writing standard and I have the ability to achieve it. Is there any way around repeating a year of school as im aware that the cut off date is in April? I looked on the Victorian government website and they said that if a child has already completed more then one term of schooling abroad them they will be able to commence their schooling in the same year in Australia. They also start school a year earlier in the UK but I’m not sure if they will let me go into the correct year group.
  8. 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!

    Masters in Australia.

    Hello, I am from Bangalore, India. I recenty completed my undergraduation in Life Sciences and want to pursue my Masters in Australia. I have shortlisted a few universities, UniMel, UniQueens, Monash, UniAde. I have looked into various blogs and articles about life in Australia but haven't found a relevant one as of yet. Can anyone let me know about the life of an Indian Masters student? How it is like, the cost of living? I was thinking about taking an education loan but then again, to know about the cost of life and quality of life in Australia beforehand would be of great help. Thank you.

  11. Dear all, My wife and me are evaluating our chances to immigrate with either 189 or 190. However, I get slightly confused with what should be counted and what should not. Your advice is very much appreciated. My wife (main applicant) has Bachelor degree in Accounting (221111) but 0 yrs of experience as accountant. She also has Master Degree in Information Systems (261312) and 3.5 yrs experience. Which path should she choose: Accounting or Developer? I got recently confused by finding out that only Bachelor degree gets points Also, not sure whether she can claim Partner skills points as my occupation is only the short-term occupation list. Thanks
  12. trHi, My husband is being relocated to Sydney in September and we are faced with the tricky task of finding a school for now four year old from London. I know she is still young but we only plan to be in Sydney for 2/3 years and then move back to the UK. Having already had over 18 months of learning to read and write (as they start earlier with this in the UK) we have been advised to put her into year 1. She adores what she calls 'work' and her teachers in the UK, teachers I know in Sydney and two educational consultants have recommended this would the best move especially since we would prefer her not to be too far behind when we come back to the UK. We wanted to send her to a Public school but they refuse to even asses her for a Year 1 place. Does anyone have any views or experience with this situation? Or found a private school that worked well in this situation? Any thoughts or ideas so appreciated. It seems so daunting with never having been to Sydney and not being able to look around schools before we leave the UK. We were thinking of northern beaches as where we may base ourselves but again this is not set in stone. Thank you!
  13. Hello All, Apologies if this has been answered somewhere. I have tried looking and struggled to find the right answer. So I am currently researching into the 189 Visa requirements and have come stuck on the overall education and Australian study requirement section. I aim to top up my FdSc to a full BSc this year in the UK. However, I am confused as to whether my BSc has to be closely related to my occupation (which I have been in for over 8 years and intend to use as my skilled Visa application). Yes it's on the skilled list. - Horse trainer. I'm considering topping up onto either an Animal Science, Wildlife Conservation or Equine science degree. Would this affect my application depending on the degree type considering my occupation is Equine based? Is it best I follow the equine top up route? Secondly, I have not studied in Australia nor had intended to until I had moved out there. As part of the Visa application it asks whether you've done so, is this vital to your application? Must you do it or have people been accepted without having done this? Sorry if any of this is confusing but also thank you very much for any advice you have. Hana
  14. Hi! Need help URGENTLY!!! I'm an international student graduating this year July 2019. I'm looking to get the 485 TR visa, followed by the 186 employer-nominated visa. I need advice on the Australian Study Requirement. I understand the ASR requires 2 years/92 weeks of study, and I'm unclear even after several calls to the DHA. Here's my case: - The 3-year course I am doing is 156 weeks of study (based on CRICOS). - I transferred to Australia midway through, so instead of 3 years I spend 2 years here. So 2/3 years x 156 weeks = 104 weeks. - A full 2-years/104 weeks consists of 4 semesters, each semester with 4 units = 16 units (full 3 years/156 weeks would = 24 units). So 16/24 units x 156 weeks = 104 weeks. Now the thing is, I did 13 units instead of 16 units. And 13/24 units x 156 weeks = 84 weeks which is under the 92 week requirement. I would need to do 2 more units to satisfy the ASR (15/24 units x 156 weeks = 97.5 weeks). I eventually concluded with some options I'm exploring: Option 1- IF I don't fulfil the ASR and I need to do 2 more units? Is there a chance I can apply for exceptions (due to reasons below)? On one call to the DHA, I was advised to submit my visa 485 application with an agent and cite my case, and that the case officer may exempt from the ASR. Things to note: 1) I will be completing my degree July 2019. Adding 2 units would be absolutely pointless in my degree. It just doesn't seem to make much sense, costing so much time and money. Option 2- IF I don't fulfil the ASR and I need to do 2 more units? Is there a chance there is a different visa route I could take does not require the ASR? I am interning with an employer as an accountant who's looking to take me on full time and most likely sponsor my visa. On one call to the DHA, I was told about TR visa 482 (that did not require ASR) and recommended to go through visa 482 and then 186 for a ASR-free employer-nominated route. But upon reading online, it seems like visa 482 requires 2 years prior working experience (which I may need some clarification on how the visa works and if I may be eligible!) Option 3- I do the 2 units because I have no better alternatives. Perhaps I can do a professional year? At least I would gain 5 points while working to meet the ASR. Exploring study options that may be more useful or cheaper as well, such as taking 2 easy-pass units up in a low-cost registered institution. Really need some advice as DHA calls have been pretty contradicting and I'm really confused! Please let me know if there are other options I could explore.
  15. Any idea what sort of documentation is typically required when applying for or starting a new school? I'm looking at Queensland in particular. I'm presuming general proof of ID, possibly some sort of handover document from their school in the UK, possibly medical documents (?)... Any general info or links to relevant posts would be appreciated. Regards BFB
  16. Hi there, I'm trying to find out the Australian Equivalent to my UK CACHE Level 3 Diploma in Specialist Support for Teaching and Learning in Schools (QCF). Does anyone know?
  17. Evening all, I am starting my HND foundation degree in mechanical engineering alongside a level 4 NVQ next month with the hope that it will put me in a good position to progress into an engineering career in Victoria Australia. Are there any engineers on here who could give some good careers advice to somebody wanting to climb the ladder in Aussie engineering? More to the point what level of job should I be hoping to obtain with the HND level qualifications. I want to be looking into jobs well in advance but am not sure at what level they will give me the time of day. Graduate schemes etc. I am currently a Quality inspector for a large international company producing industrial gas turbine and Aero engine components, at the time of emigration I will have around 10 years experience within an engineering background. I will hopefully have Status metrology CMM qualifications also. Any help will be much appreciated
  18. Hello, I need some advice about what education to list in my expression of interest. I have received my LOD from ANMAC last week and am now wanting to submit my EOI. I have a degree in adult nursing (UK) and various level 6 and level 7 post graduate diplomas and stand alone modules. Do I list these in the education section, as it asks for all secondary level education and above? I am aware I will not gain any points for these courses, but as they will be mentioned in my CV do I need to list them in the education section? Or are they only interested in courses that I would gain points for? Many thanks, Ali
  19. Hi, EOI can anyone advise? Where you fill out the education section on the EOI, do I need to list my GCSEs, A levels and PGCE or just my BA Hons degree for which I will be claiming the points?
  20. Hi, recently we have moved here to New South Wales and I am wondering what is the equivalence of National 5 and Higher Scottish Qualifications here? Thanks

    Enrolling into school on temp Visa

    Hi all, Looking for some advice from anyone else in my situation. We came to Sydney in January on a 3 month visitor Visa. We have just applied for the Last remaining relative Visa (835) and been accepted and granted a BVA WA, with rights to study. Does this mean I do not have to pay the school fees for my daughter to go into primary school? Or are we classed as temp residents even though we are awaiting PR?

    3 Year teaching Degree??

    Hello all. I am a new user ... recommended by my Brother-in-law ... I have been researching moving to Australia to teach for a while but I am still rather confused as to the value of my Teaching Qualification. I have a 'BA Hons Early Years Education with Qualified Teacher Status' Degree - I am a fully qualified Early Years and Primary Teacher with QTS - My degree however was 3 years and from what I have gathered from research, to teach in Australia I will need a 4 year teaching degree. Please can someone clarify this for me? Don't want to get my hopes up if there is no chance! Thank you in advance for any advice given!

  25. Hi I have recently submitted my EOI for ICT Business Analysis on the 189 Visa. All good I have the 60 points, but have recently learnt that they are only inviting for 70 points and above. I have only submitted with RPL from ACS, but was wondering if I could do a certification and get an extra 10 points? My question is really what level of certification can I claim the secondary level education for? Do I need a Bachelors? or would a BCS Certificate in Business Analysis Practice at practitioner level suffice? Or do I need to do the full BCS International Diploma in Business Analysis? What do they mean by secondary level education? Thanks, Kate
