  1. Hi, Me and my wife are planing to head to Oz next year on a 457visa. My wife is a dentist and have been working for the last 3 years in the UK. She is currently grossing £92k. I have checked:- http://www.payscale.com/research/AU/Job=Dentist/Salary but this does not reflect how much they earn. I know it can be varies between different states. But any reply will be appreciated. Also she have been in touch with a dental agency which charge 16% and with the higher cost of living in Oz, will we be better off?!? Cheers :wink:
  2. Im a student nurse and have been umming and arrring whether to go up to degree in my final year, due to hearing rumours about the AHPRA only allowing in Degree graduates within a few years.

Does anyone know if this is set to change any time soon? and where do i find out how many years experience i need? for western and southern australia Charlie
  3. Hi, I'm waiting for 176 visa to be granted - have no Case Officer. If I were to receive a job offer - would this mean I would get the visa much quicker (if I informed DIAC)? If so - any ideas how long? Thanks! Mike.
  4. Dear All, I have passed BCS (British computer Society) Professional Graduate Diploma in IT and This level is the academic equivalent to Year 3 of a UK university honours degree. Also It is recognised by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA) as Level 6. I have 3 + years of experience as a Software Engineer. Will I be able to apply for PR in Australia?

    Higher Education

    Iya. I am currently 17 and I will be moving to Australia in the autumn of 2010, by which time I will be 18. I'm having a little bit of difficulty working out what level of education I will be going into. From what I understand, high school is competely out of the question as I will be to old by the time I move. At the moment I am doing a BTEC National Diploma in acting but will not finish the course as it is two years. Last year I also did my first year of A Levels at a differnt college. I understand that I would obviously not be able to go to university with these grades as I do not have either A Levels or a full diploma. The grades I do have though are 7 A*-C at GCSE (3 Grade B and 5 Grade C) as well as AS Level of C in English Language and D in English Literature. I would just like to know what level of courseI will be able to take (I've heard about TAFE but I don't know if that is the same level as university only for vocational courses?) I think the main problem is trying to work out what level of education equivalates to in Australia, but i'm finding it really difficult! :huh: Sorry for the long post but any help would be appreciated, TAHHH. :cute:
  6. Full-time jobs surge as unemployment rate creeps higher, ABS says | The Australian
  7. Hi, We've been talking with our twin boys about them going to Adelaide university rather than starting degree courses in Scotland. If they study in Scotland it's free but we will need to pay for accommodation etc, however in Adelaide they would have to pay but the accommodation would be free(ish). Taking everything into consideration and as we have PR I don't think there will be much difference to us price wise between the two options. My question however is whether their Scottish qualifications would be acceptable to Aussie universities. It looks like they will get 5 highers at grade B or above but I can't find out what this translates to in Aus. I have emailed Adelaide Uni twice but so far to no avail. Any help would be much appreciated. Daniel
  8. Hi, wondering if anyone can help lor has previous experience of this. I've been on the australian tax office website and it seems that as a 475 temp regional visa holder I'm classed as non-resident and as such I'm not entitled to the $6400 tax free allowance that residents are. Looking at the tax office taxation bands my husband & I will both be paying an extra $6000 in tax per year until we can submit our PR application in 2 years time. Is there anyway we can prove that we're staying here permanently (sold house, shipped furniture, put dog through quarrantine and hubby itching to join a golf club). Or do we just have to put up with it for the time being and claim the tax back when we eventually get PR ? Or is it just tough luck (which would have been nice to know before we moved) ? Any help appreciated, we both applied for TFN which we've received but they state we're non-residents. Lisa:unsure:

    Higher Education Oz v UK

    Can anybody give me information on thier experience of Oz higher edcation versus UK higher education? particularly Uni's Quoll got me thinking as she seems to think that UK education is better value and higher standard than Oz my research left me thinking that there was little difference in the experience ie there will be a mix of people from different countries the same as there would be here, the courses look similar and the end result is a Degree, I am not sure how they compare in the workplace - does an Oz degree stand up against a UK one when applying for a job in the UK and vice versa? I would think it would especially if it is from a good Uni any thoughts appreciated:wubclub:
