    @kimberly what is your bf's work in Sydney? Because if he is only a student then he has no capacity to sponsor you...

    @kimberly i will be taking my ielts exam this upcoming week, hoping to get the my target band, according to some of my co-reviewees.. iba daw tlga kapag nagreview center ka, sila kasi they have to retake the exam kasi di nila nameet ang band score nila. I also suggest visiting www.ieltsliz.com. Super helpful sya skin whenever I can't attend my reviews.

    @lostlittlegirl hi what do you mean fund transfer? as in trinansfer lang sa account mo?
    my financial docs show deposits/transfers which are 1-2 months na nagstay sa account ko before i lodge my visa. masters program ako, hindi naman sila nagask additional info bakit may malalaking deposit on my account.

    @Michael L. Hi po, as per my agent pwede po yun basta matured na yung time deposit by the time that you are lodging your documents. tsaka yung 3 months bank statements po hingin niyo lang sa bank normally 2 weeks yata pinaprocess so may alternative naman like passbook if masyadong matagal po :) goodluck po sa application and sana maapprove din po tayo :)

    @kimberly hi! I took my IELTS way back April 2015 pa and paexpire na siya. You can search on Google or Youtube para malaman yung process ng exams, sample tests, etc. But may I suggest lang na pwede ka din magPTE katulad ng tinatake ko ngayon na review (and hopefully exams soon!!!) kasi mas madali daw and mabilis lang siya. I am under KOKOS International, and as confirmed, highly recommended nga sila and mas mura ang PTE sa kanila :) hope this helps and sana makapasa tayo pareho!!!! :) saan school ka nagapply??

    @ykcul_kcul hi po, normally sa bridging programs need mo po magapply muna sa ahpra. pwede mo search sa google then may forms sila for registering nurses/midwife tapos andun na po checklist :) masyado mahaba and mataas english requirement. Initially, yan din po applyan ko before :)

    @jimbodan hi! I am not sure if free sila but with my agent ngayon, si KOKOS International free siya if yun po and pati PTE nila mas mura. And highly recommended siya ng friend ko na umalis na kahapon, so far baka next week palang ako magpersonal consult sa kanila pero very accommodating naman sa phone inquiries lang din :) sana nakatulong kahit konti!

    @Celeana Hi po, si Fortrust po agent ko last 2015 nung nagpaplan palang ako. Maayos naman po sila and mabait yung counselor ko dun, sir mon po pangalan niya very smart and napakaapproachable nya. Pero lumipat po ako sa KOKOS International kasi wala na si sir mon dun and yung iba pang mga counselors kasi nung di ko nareach required IELTS score, parang ayaw na nila ako tulungan unlike before. masyado sila nagmamadali na magbayad ako sa school and magapply pero kapag may mga questions ako, di agad ako sinasagot tsaka parang naiinis na sa akin. Search mo po si KOKOS so far, direct and very accommodating sila. you can look for MJ or Jaycee po, sila nirerecommend dun eh :)

    @Gee sa salford college sa SA... 10 days waiting time po sya though parang 4 daya lang actually kc nalate ung medical nya eh after.maupload medical nya 4 days after visa granted na sya..
    Di ako sure kung malaki ung advantage kc parang same lang din naman ang processing.ang difference kc sa kanila ung school nila ung nag initial assessment sa kanila including amg financial capacity saka ung gte nila tpos kapag ok na saka palang cla binigyan ng coe then proceed to visa app..in my own opinion parang for formality nalang na dumaan cla sa embassy kc ang tagal na nilang naassess sa school.
