    hi @danyan2001us, gusto ko sana manghingi ng advise mo tungkol sa situation ko.

    i want to study in au. ang option na pasok na pasok sa budget ko eh vet, sa kent initially ko gusto mag study. 28 weeks ang duration ng course (so 7 months sya) course is marketing, tama ba na after cert 4, kunin ko yung diploma, tas adv diploma? sa tingin mo, anong visa pwede ko iapply after this?

    2nd option na inooffer sakin ng agency is masteral, which is $40k for 2 years[, naluluha ako isipin. baka di ko kayanin, sa kalagitnaan hindi ko na maituloy.

    what can you say about graduate certificate? okay din kaya yun kesa masteral?

    i mean, my brother will support me sa tuition, but sa una lang. the succeeding months, ako na sa sarili ko.

    ano kaya sa tingin mo?

    thanks, sana mapansin mo post ko :)

    @lara_xxx ....hi lara 1st recommendation ko sa iyo is to take other pathways except for student visa kasi masyado magastos dito ang mag aaral lalo na if you are just by yourself. If medyo alanganin dyan then the other way would be through student visa yon lang medyo magastos. Pero if susuportahan ka ng brother mo then that would be alright. May iilan din akong friends dito na mga single din at nursing pa nga yong kinuha nila pero napakahirap at marami ka sakripisyo na gagawin. First try to ask yourself, " Kaya mo ba na magsakripisyo like magtrabaho ng mga mahihirap na work like cleaning, serving staff (waitress), tindera etc.... kung may magsuporta sa iyo then you don't have to do them...good luck sis and just believe in yourself. Ang kailangan lang naman dito ay may determinasyon ka at focus sa buhay para makamit mo iyong mga dreams mo dito sa OZ.

    @danyan2001us hi! thanks for your reply. Sige, i'll try to see other visa options. But what's your take on VET vs. Graduate Diploma vs. Masteral. Institute vs Uni? Alin dun ang mas may edge? Thanks. :)

    @lara_xxx I feel you Lara, I'm on the same situation, pero dahil may constraints sa budget, sa ngayon mag VET muna ako, then hanap work, ipon ng onti, tsaka mag isip ng pwede lipatan na course na makakatulong na mag proceed sa PR...

    Hi. May few questions lang po ako. :) I'm based here in Sydney and currently on Subclass 573 visa then graduating this year, Dec 2017. Ma expire po yun visa ko next year, March 2018. Nung nag lodge ako ng visa hindi ko po sinama yun partner ko sa application kasi mas madali daw po walang dependent. Eh ngayon, hindi ko na po alam ano na next process ko after Uni. Kelan po yun right time na mag lodge ako ng visa na 485 na po ba?

    Tapos, paano po yun i apply ko po ba si partner at the same time na mag apply ako ng new visa? Paano po yun process? Medyo clueless po kasi ako paano gagawin yun defacto. Thank you in advance, btw!

    hi @lara_xxx

    nabasa ko itong post mo and i'd like to comment.

    if your goal is post-grad visa later on, you've got to bear in mind three things: do not do anything below a diploma level. second, the duration should not be below two years or 92 weeks so you should package that diploma with another course if it's less than two years. focus on courses that are on the occupation list and aligns with your previous study or experience.

    you may also want to consider studying in a regional areas. that will help you with your PR application in the future by giving you bonus points.

    If you can do master's degree, do it. It matters to how long you'd be able to stay on a post-grad visa.

    Post-Study Work stream
    This visa lasts for two to four years, depending on the highest qualification you used to apply for this visa:

    Bachelor Degree, Bachelor Degree with Honours, Masters by Coursework Degree or Masters (extended) Degree – your visa is valid for two years
    Masters by Research Degree– your visa is valid for three years
    Doctoral Degree – your visa is valid for four years.

    Kung PR ang target, there are some states that will sponsor you for PR if you study a postgraduate course in the masters level and up that's in demand sa state.

    Would be happy interest to know what your background (education and work experience/s) para mas more precise ang suggestions for you.

    All the best, Lara! :)

    Hello! Newbie po.
    Medtech po ako with 1yr working experience.
    I chose to study Masters degree in australia then work as a medtech hoping na makaapply for PR.
    Target ko po November intake, Master of Public Health. However suggest po ng agency, wag daw po yun Master of Laboratory Science daw po, kaso sa February pa po ang start.
    Pag daw po public health kinuha ko mahihirapan daw po ako mag PR, i need greater points, whereas LabSci wala daw po masyado nagtetake so masmadali daw po mag PR. Totoo po ba to? Kahit both lang naman po makakakuha ng 60points? Salamat po sa pagsagot. Nahihirapan na po kasi ako magdecide gusto ko po sana talaga sa November. Godbless us all

    Hi @snue . Medtech are Lab Technicians here so that's a good advice from your agent.

    There are only two courses accredited:

    RMIT UNIVERSITY
    Master of Laboratory Medicine (AIMS accreditation requirements must be complied with)
    (No extra points for the location)
    5 points for 2 year study requirement

    UNIVERSITY OF TASMANIA
    Master of Laboratory Medicine (Professional Experience Sequence) (From 1 July 2017)

    Possible extra points you can get if you go for University of Tasmania.
    5 points for meeting the 2 year study requirement
    5 additional points if they complete 2 years of study in a regional area

    Hope this helps.

    Gday!

    @filsgoz thank you po. But if I were to choose a different course like Master of Public Health or other related courses, will it be hard for me to apply for PR? Thank you

    hi @snue it's easy to apply for PR. prepare and upload docs.

    the question is, do you already have a positive assessment? that's your ticket. if you're migrating using your profession (lab tech/med tech), im not sure if you will get a positive assessment with your current qualification (if you haven't already). MPH does not add to your being lab tech/med tech as far as occupation assessment is concerned.

    you will get extra 5 points for whatever course provided that it's minimum 2 years (dip level up).

    hope that makes sense. start with qualification assessment (if you haven't already done so).

    Gday!

    Hello and thank you @filsgoz I am migrating as a student and then will apply for Skilled independent visa 189 (if ever) after finishing my course.

    Do they give consideration in the rank for having an invite to those who got into a level 1 university or it doesnt matter as long as you finished a 2yr-course and scored a minimum of 60pts?

    Thank you.

    Thank you.

    Hello and thank you @filsgoz I am migrating as a student and then will apply for Skilled independent visa 189 (if ever) after finishing my course. - You better rethink this. "the government’s changes from March 2018 make it harder for foreign students to stay on after their studies". Posted this as a thread itself. Read here.

    Do they give consideration in the rank for having an invite to those who got into a level 1 university or it doesnt matter as long as you finished a 2yr-course and scored a minimum of 60pts?

    I can only assume what you're asking kasi di ko maintindihan ang tanong. I don't know who you are referring to with 'they'. I don't know what you mean by 'give consideration in the rank for having an invite'.

    If you are asking whether you graduating from a level 1 university will give you preference to be invited for 189? The answer is no. DIBP doesn't care if you graduated from a level 1, 2 or 3 uni. It only cares whether you've got positive assessment for your qualification/skills. The assessing body cares about whether you graduated from level 1 uni.

    "or it doesnt matter as long as you finished a 2yr-course and scored a minimum of 60pts"

    It matters that you have positive assessment of your qualification. On that note, finishing from a level 1 uni matters. Finishing 2 years study here in Australia on a Diploma and above level (AQF Level 5 and up) contributes to your points and therefore giving you better chances for a 189. Getting the right course as well matters and that's what I was telling you in previous post. If you are using being MedTech as key for a PR visa, you should take the accredited course because as you stand now (A uni degree plus 1 year experience post qualification), I am not confident that you will get a positive assessment.

    This is just my opinion and I'm only basing this from a very limited info that I know about your situation. Anyone who can contribute, please do so.

    Gday!

    Your fear is baka di ka matanggap kasi?

    If you're saying 'kasi educ then IT', you should really ask yourself that question first and clarify your goal. And if you're clear with what you want to do, i'm sure you can very well explain them why you chose IT.

    If natatakot ka dahil your intention is really not to be a genuine temporary entrant (GTE), you've got to resolve than yourself. If you can't then explore options like coming in as a teacher.

    If you're fearful of rejection and needs encouragement, if you backread the forum thread, you'll see inspiring stories of courage and just-taking-the-leap-of-faith.

    If you're just unsure, backread, research, and then ask specific questions that others here in the forum are more than willing to help you with (visa application process, how to produce requirements as prescribed by TAFE/institute).

    Gday!

    Hi hope you are doing fine...Two years kasi yan ang study requirement in order for you to get points later on for your further visa application. Where ka ba based as of the moment? If sa Cebu then I can ask a friend who assisted us during our application to help you as well.
