    I'm back! so? lol

    Anyhoo! One month nako dito so far okay naman, except that as time passes, iniisip ko kung pano macoconvert ang visa ko sa 457. Or kung palarin, skilled independent. Unfortunately, my current course here will be of no help based on the migration agent I talked to. Pero fortunately, I have a degree in Early Childhood Education so may chance ako kahit papano.

    @R_Yell Depende yan actually sa school. Most universities will require you to pay one time big time. Pero most colleges have installment plans.

    @nj87 I suggest you dont leave the country whilst waiting for the results. Usually kasi if may kulang, ieemail ka nila and you have to send it asap eh. Unless you'd rather have them wait, and have your case go at the bottom of the pile. So wag ka muna umalis. Wait for the result, then go travel. :)

    ask ko nga pala.. paano ba yung sa bank statement.. kasi sponsor ko nasa australia... halimbawa magpapasa ako requirements bukas september 11.. kailangan ba ang bank statement ko is from june11 to september11?
    kasi covered ng statement ng sponsor ko monthly is tuwing month 3- month 2 lang (ex. july 3 to august 2, august 3 to september 3) paano po ba yon? wala kasi sila online banking at di naman techy, kasi medyo may edad nadin hehe'. kaya baka mahirapan ako makahingi sa kanila ng bank statement.. ang binibigay nila sakin yung pinapadala lang talaga sa kanila ng bank.. thank you po ha..

    Ganun ba. Dont worry too much. Basta isubmit mo yung statement ng bank na galing sa Tito mo. It should be more than okay. Maapprove ka yan.

    baka meron po kayong recommended na college or university na di naman kamahalan ang tuition fee at mas lenient sa tems ng payment ng tuition fee (like 1 sem lang muna ang babayaran). Kung kukuha ako ng medical course (nurs/aged care) applicble po ba GT/6.5 na IELTS ko?
    thanks.

    kailangan bang mag bayad kagad ng tuition fee, pano kung hindi naman ako mavisahan, ang hirap mag refund. hindi ba tinatanggap ng embassy acceptance letter muna ng Uni/Colleges upon application ng student visa?

    @juleikha_10 Hi u need to have COE first prior lodgement of ur application. About refund if u didnt successfully get the visa they will refund ur full tuition fee but not the enrollmentfee (usually 150-200bux depende sa uni/college) if u apply in any uni/colleges na included sa
    SVP they will do the 1st assessment on behalf of DIAC so most likely if u've received ur COE your chance to obtain the visa is malaki. Unlike sa mga private colleges d2 na hndi ksama sa SVP it will take 3months and mahigpit sila for all the requirements.

    Rarely does 3months waiting time happen naman. I got my visa in less than 2wks. Technically, whether you are eligible for SVP or not, you go through the same process, submit the same documents (except for proof funds) and all that. As long as your documents are complete and believable, you're good to go.

    Hi, new member po ako dito sa forum. I don't know where to post about my case, pero since I'm planning on going to Oz on student visa, I guess dito nalang.

    I'm a 25 y/o Filipina currently residing and working here in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. I have a bachelors degree in Marketing Communications from UA&P (Pasig, Philippines) obtained in 2008. I very would like to make a life for myself in Oz, and most people tell me that through student visa is the best and quickest way. I have some background in graphic design, so I would like to pursue that (despite the fact that mostly hospitality and health care jobs are said to be most in demand). Unfortunately, because of the limited work opportunities for women here in Riyadh, my experience in unrelated to my marketing degree, so that makes me unqualified for a masters program. the choice I'm going for is study graphic design and hopefully be able to find work and permanent sponsorship in Oz afterwards.

    What do you guys think? Is this a feasible plan kaya? I already took my IELTS last Feb.. I got an 8.5 overall so no problem in that area na. I also have an acceptance in Grenadi Design School na for a two year advanced diploma program. Kaso since advanced diploma lang siya and not a bachelor's degree, hind ako magiging qualified for the post-study work visa. So my questions are:

    1. dapat ba ako kumuha ng three year bachelor's program or ung advanced diploma would do?
    2. does anyone how is the demand for graphic design or related field there? most people are advising me to get something that is in demand, pero I really don't want to veer to far from my interest.
    3. graphic designer in included in CSOL schedule 2 pero not in SOL.. is this a disadvantage when I eventually want to apply for PR?

    Sorry for the long post, I've had this plan for a while now and I'm glad I came across this forum. I'm hoping someone can give me some advise and clarifications.

    Thank you in advance

    i believe most of us here the main aim of gaining entry is to work. tanong ko lang po, pag student visa ako at makakapag work naman, maccover ba ng kita ko ang lahat ng na gastos ko plus ang pag stay ko jan, plus i need to send remittence as well? nag inquire ako thru email, nakareceive ako ng tawag from ICAE, diploma in hospitality, tuition fee is AUD9,500, 1 yr. course. eligible naman daw ako to apply sa kanila, i wander kung mababawi ko ang gastos ko sa pagwwork while studying.
    pls advice naman po the best course/college/uni sa case ko. Front lang po talaga ang student visa, i am seeking work in AU.
    my ielts is 6.5/GT/i am 35 y.o/graduated 2 yr. medical secretarial course/worked in Dubai for 5 and half years in Travel Agency/i resigned 6 mos. ago and currently in PI.

    ang sarap basahin ng last part ng post nyo.. VISA GRANTED.. very insipiring sa mga baguhan tulad ko.

    thank you po in advance sa lahat ng sagot nyo.

    Marami nang ng tanong dito regarding "working while studying income to pay for your schooling " and the answer is a big NO. You are only allowed to work 20hrs per week then meron pa tax deduction, then your food and accommodation, then ang mahal nang tuition. You must have enough money to finish your schooling and then find a good job afterwards and by then you will recover your investment. Try to search the forums and you can read more answer to your questions.

    @Cheers25 hello! how are you din?? Are you in Melbourne na? I'm good. Naghahanap ng work kasi parang wala atang bagets dito sa area ko. haha so minsan lang ako naboobook for casual teaching. Is it still cold in Melbourne? I might visit early next year, we should meet up since you helped me a lot here :)

    @audrey26 TBH, I don't think graphic design will do you any good if your long term goal is to be a permanent resident here. I get your point of not wanting to veer away from what you want. If I had the choice, I would do the same. As they've said nga, It's not "love what you do, but do what you love." Pero, if your goal is to become a permanent resident, aside from being sponsored by an employer which is the best thing, your only choice is to study a course which is in demand here because in that way, you can still nominate yourself for skilled independent or sponsored by a state visa. Also, the SOL and all the other rules change yearly. So you'll never know talaga. It's weird that I'm giving you such advice coz I myself didn't listen to what people told me. LOL I'm studying a completely different course which I've come to like but wont do me any good. I do believe na it's nice that you want to continue on with what you love, pero we're not getting any younger (we're the same age) we should think of our future na eh. Maybe you can study something that's in demand here muna and when all is good, you can always study graphic design again.

    @ juleikha_10 Try to read this thread as well:
    http://www.pinoyau.info/discussion/523/2012-student-visa-applicants/p4

    Don't be discouraged. Make more research on various forums and Australian immigration DIAC sites. You may be able to weigh your options and make a good decision later.
