    I studied IT back in 2015. Career wise, yes it is rewarding but the journey to PR is quite expensive unless IT ka na talaga before.

    I have to do the professional year program to get a positive assessment from ACS which costs 12k aud plus yung seminars for CPD points

    If gusto mo maging PR through SV, I would suggest take healthcare courses like nursing. Mataas demand dito talaga, not sure if it's a rewarding career but would probably say it's fulfilling as you help people in the community. (assumption ko lang)

    Mark 11:24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

    Hi, i have plan to enroll IT as well in Australia. I'm eyeing Queensford College pero masyado mahal yung tuition sa school compara sa New Era pero pare-pareho naman sila ng curriculum na inooffer. I'm on the process of preparing my requirements for next year intake. Is there a way that I can contact you privately po for more questions? May agency po ako nagaasikaso ng papers ko now.

    @lunarcat hindi ako IT sa Pinas kaya gapang na gapang ako. And yes, gaya ng sinabi ni @frisch24 , positive mindset talaga ang need.

    Naka graduate visa kami ngayon at na-invite na rin kami ni @frisch24 for permanent residency, inaantay na ang Direct Grant!
