    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.
  2. On the new 491 visa, if a visa holder was offered a place at the University of Queensland which has a main address in Brisbane BUT they would be only studying in the Gatton campus which is in a regional postcode, would this be allowed?
  3. 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.
  4. Hi, I am currently studying A Levels in the UK, England. My boyfriend and I are thinking of moving to Australia in the near future, he is fully Australian and his family live there also. After I have finished my A-levels, this is where my problem starts, I have no idea of any of the methods in which I can train. I am fully English myself so I can imagine this could be quite awkward. I have tried looking into this but I cannot find a lot of information, my plan in the UK was to finish my A-levels, move on to a higher apprenticeship and continue from there until trained and qualified. Is an apprenticeship in Law an option in Australia, NSW? Or do you have to go university? If a junior contract is available, are they easy to find? If not is there any advice on how university would work for me? And how long either of these processes will take? Will becoming a solicitor eventually be an option to me in Australia or is it the end of what I wish to do? Please leave ANY advice you have as I am completely stuck!! Thank you in advance, Whitney.
  5. Hi My cousin is 18 years old and about to finish her high school in Belgium. She wants to migrate here in Australia. We would appreciate any advice regarding type of study/career which she can undertake to facilitate her migration. She would like to take a course in TAFE first. Any tip of which course/path she could follow to make her migration journey easy? Regards Zey
  6. Hi! I am just waiting to hear if I have been approved for 457 visa sponsorship, but was wondering if this visa allows you to study at the same time as working? I can't find anything on the immi.gov.au website about the visa holder being able to study or not...just says others in the family who are coming over as part of your visa can study. I want to apply to study through the Australian Open University whilst working on a 457 visa... Does anyone know? Thank you!
  7. Hello everyone, I am planning to move to Australia. I am a software engineer by education from a very elite institute in India (Indian Institute of Technology Delhi) and have worked for both finance and software industry for three years in total. I want to do a part time culinary course from Australia and I can work along side (in either IT or finance). I am planning to get a part time job say maybe 4 days or something. I wanted to know what kind of visa would suit for the part time work and would I be able to study while being on that visa? I like the option of the work visa and then study part time with it better than being on student visa and work part time (20 hrs per week). I see that the software engineer profession is amongst one of the skillsets. Thank you so very much, Priyanka

  9. I posted on here a while back about doing nurse training once we arrive in Perth next year and when I looked into the courses they did seem rather expensive. When I looked into enrolled nursing at the Tafe in Perth it was quoting $10,000 per year to study. My OH was not impressed ! However I didnt realise that was the fee for International students on a student visa !! :GEEK: We should be coming over on a perm res visa as my OH is a carpenter so I wont be applying as an international student. Accidently I found a website about Central Tafe and their courses ( not available to inter students) and enrolled nursing is only $570 per semester - much cheaper and you can study part time. ( At Mt Lawley) Ideal for me as my kids will be just starting school. Does anyone know anything about these courses ? Have I understood this to correctly. I will be 35 by the time I start studying so enrolled nursing is a shorter course and may be better for me. Only trouble is finding my school certificates....:spinny:

  14. New genetic research in BMC Evolutionary Biology found telltale mutations in modern-day Indian populations that are exclusively shared by Aborigines. The new study indicates that Australian Aborigines initially arrived via south Asia. http://www.abc.net.au/science/articles/2009/07/24/2635149.htm
  15. So I'm in Australia at the minute I'm currently here on a Working Holiday Visa but I have just applied for a De Facto Visa with my boyfriend and it should be processed in the next 7-10 months. But I'm currently working at a childcare centre as a casual and want to study and can't until I'm on my new visa. But the immigration told me I can study as long as the institute is not in Australia so I was going to do an English online course and just complete it here? but firstly I'm not sure what course is best to do thats equal to a certificate 3 here and secondly which site is best to do it on? and thirdly if they would allow me to do it that way?:wacko: So if anyone had any ideas or help it would be great.

    Help! 885 GSM Visa

    I applied for the 885 Visa on June 11, 2011, and have already been granted a CO. However, my study end date was December 9, 2010 (6 months + 2 days prior to lodging application). The only thing I have to submit now to my CO is a PCC. However, since my PCC takes 4-6 months to process if i am overseas, I really cannot wait on this time frame, so I want to fly to my home country, personally get the PCC (they give it within 2-3 days if you apply for PCC in own country), then come back to OZ to finalise my application. My question is, that based on the information I provided, what is the likelihood that I will be granted a visa if I am 2 days over the 6 month time frame? Is there ANY leniency on this matter exercised by COs? Should my husband and I take a trip to our home country ($4000+) just to get a PCC and come back within a week to OZ, only to potentially have our application rejected? We've put in a tremendous amount of money, time and effort into this, as i'm sure all of those who apply for similar visas would, only to realize we were "late" by 2 days, but we lodged anyway. Any help will be appreciated. Thank you.
  18. Hi, my friend just finish diploma and he would like apply for Graduation skill visa. But he is already more then 5 years on student visa. Is it possible to apply for this visa. I heard something that you have to by maximum 5 years on student visa.
  19. [WRAP]http://www.pomsinoz.com/images/inhaler.jpg[/WRAP]According to new figures, Asthma cases in children and young people are on the way down but the poor are still more likely to suffer. A study by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare compared figures from 2001 with 2007-08 and found the prevalence of asthma in people aged between 5 and 34 years old had dropped by 25%. The study also found a drop in the number of new cases among young people and a fall in hospitalisations and deaths linked to asthma. The director of the Australian Centre for Asthma Monitoring, Professor Guy Marks, says during the 1980s and 1990s the number of cases were increasing, but the long-term trend is now down. "Our report today shows that over the last 10 years there's been a decline in the number of children and young adults who have asthma by around about one quarter compared to what it was in 2000," he said. "The same has been seen for the number of people who have been hospitalised from asthma. There has been a decline probably since the mid-1990s again that seems to have plateaued in recent years." The report also found those from disadvantaged areas were more likely to be hospitalised than people from high socio-economic areas, with the gap widening in recent years. Professor Marks says Australia's asthma rates are "relatively high" compared to the rest of the world, but says the recent decline in cases remains something of a mystery. "We don't know what causes asthma. We do know that it's likely to be something related to environment or lifestyle factors, but exactly which ones of those factors it is we can't say at the moment." He says while the drop in the disease is good news, asthma remains a significant health challenge in Australia. "We have to be careful about being complacent because the prevalence rates and the outcomes of asthma are still high in Australia compared to other countries," he said. "One of the other things that our report shows is there's increasing evidence of a difference between people living in poorer areas and people living in more well off areas of Australia. "The prevalence of asthma is higher in people living in more disadvantaged areas and also the outcomes of the disease are worse in people living in those areas."
  20. Hi! My name is Marta I’m from Poland and in next year me and my fiancé planned to go to university in Australia. We have some question about city, which one is the best for study and working? Agent from immigration office recommend for us Townsville. It is good city for young people (we have 22 years now)? How about night life and study there? Because we heard that in smaller city in Australia immigrants are unacceptable and is very difficult to find a job. Maybe you life in Townsville or you have friends from there than we will be very grateful for any information. Which another city in Australia you recommend? We have planned to study, me cooking and my fiancé want to be a car mechanic. Are we make a good choice? Regards Marta and Marek

  22. Hello. I am 27 years old, new to this forum and feeling a little confused! My partner whom I've been in a relationship for a year and half is an Australian national and is very keen to head home to Australia (Melbourne) mid-2010. I would love to join him, despite it inevitably being very hard to leave so many friends and family behind. I also have the minor issue of renting/selling my house!! I didn't go to university and therefore the only qualifications I have are A levels. I currently work as a P.A. in the CIty (London) but I am desperate to leave the office environment with a view to finding a route that leads me to achieving my ambition of working with chidren. WIth this in mind, along with the fact that my partner is so keen to head back to Australia I'm trying to piece together some sort of study plan in order to fulfil my dream of working with kids. I also feel that studying would be a perfect opportunity to meet new people and build some friendships in Melbourne because as things stand I will only have my partner and his family/friends around for moral support! I've done a little research and am very interested in obtaining a Certifcate followed by Diploma/Advanced Diploma in Childrens Services - which could lead to various potential job opportunities (in an ideal world!). In theory, if I could achieve all of the above I would be a very happy young lady however I know that I am going to meet many obstacles along the way which is why I'm posting on this forum to try and seek some advice from anyone who can help. Questions I need to try and answer are: Which visa I could apply for? What to study and whether I meet the entry reuirements? Am I being realistic in thinking that I could have a visa sorted by middle of next year? Thanks to anyone who is able to offer any advice - it is much appreciated. :twitcy:

    Studting in the UK

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me... i was born in the England and lived there until i was 11. I then moved to Australia with my Mum, Dad and Brother. Now i am 24 and we moved back to the UK few months ago. Everything is great and we all love it. The only problem i am having is that i want to attend university but am apparently not classed as a "ordinary resident" of the UK until i have spend three years here and am therefore classed as a international student and cant recieve any Student finance loans or assistance. it would be imposible for me to pay international student fee. My parants have brought a house here and my dad has a job here. its not like we are going to leave half way through my studies or anything. England is home again! Does anyone have any information on this topic? Stressing a bit!!!! Cheers

    Job or study??

    Hi, Ive recently received a B.A honours in psychology (upper 2nd class). I was hoping to either work or do further study in Oz. I was hoping to work/study within the clinical psychology setting, any advice would be much appreciated. Failing that I have experience as a support worker for both adults and children with special needs, would this help me get my foot in the door? Lynnbo
