If you have conducted your research, you know that their rate is one of the most affordable in the market. Please click here for more details about the offering.
Hi to All, Please take extra care guys wherever you are, take care of your love ones too. Especially to our friends in Singapore, more being confirmed, and are through community spread, no longer from people who travelled from China. Observe proper hygiene at all times and also monitor our little ones as they often put their hands in their mouth.

    @MLBS @Adreamer thanks! I was in metrobank na earlier going through the process then they told me n 3900 pesos ung fee for paying. Parang too expensive..?

    The other option that was indicated sa payment instruction was via online banking. Would you know how this goes? And if may fee din ito? Thank you

    @pat18 I suggest mag BPI ka nlang sis mas mura kasi sa BPI eh 1k lng bank charge na tapos derecho na siya transfer sa bank mismo sa Australia. i tried asking BPO pero need pa nila mag convert ng PHP to USD then USD to AUD so my charges pa dyan in between sa transaction na yan. ano school mo pla at course?

    Hi! Anyone here can recommend me of agencies in cebu that offer free assistance. Currently having issues with my current agency kasi (which I paid for). Parang nawawalan na ako ng gana.

    On another hand, pag masteral ba how many hours allowed to work?

    Hi! I’m applying for Masters in Information Systems in CQU. I’m a bit discouraged because my agency is not answering my inquiries well, but I’d really like to pursue my dream of obtaining this degree in Australia. :)

    Hope I may get your opinion on what are my chances of getting accepted in a uni there. Here are my credentials:

    -bachelor graduate of IT
    - I messed up in college I didn’t finish BS IT in just 4 years. I shifted from 1 course and another, and finished my bachelor in 8 years, whew! Well, i was very lazy and has no direction back then, :( but now a changed person and very much goal-oriented. (I’m a fresh grad)
    - my GWA in college is 85
    - my IELTS score is 6.5 (minimum in CQU is 6)
    - my college is not that much popular here in PH
    - has no career background, except for my internship (because fresh grad)

    I’d really like to take my Masters in Aus and at the same time work part time. Currently, i’m working on my application and pouring my heart into it.

    Your thoughts please :) :) thanks

    @cyril make sure you are passionate of what you're trying to pursue. Studying postgraduate is very expensive in Australia but worth it naman.

    To be admitted, to be honest they are not very strict with grades and your bachelor degree. I am not a non-computing background but got admitted in IT program.

    You need atleast to have a strong proof of funding + meet the English requirement.

    Things you need to consider:
    - Source of funds because no matter how hard you work and 20 hrs max per week limitation, you won't save the uni fees
    - Expensive insurance
    - PR pathway (points eligibility), if you're planning to stay here permanently through student visa
    - Australia is pushing migrants to regional states and IT (may) not be as needed to those places or competition is higher than Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane

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

    @wen-wen choose a course na mejo related sa natapos/exp mo para di ka mahirapan mag explain sa purpose of study. wala naman age limit sa pag study. But if you are planning to apply for PR, which is point based, you need to get pts from other category.

    @reginalove hello, sharing from own experience. took up Master's program too, 12k per sem ang tuition. kakayanin kung may dependant kang nagwork fulltime. kung ikaw magisa hirap though achievable. on your first year, kekelanganin mo ng financial support, because let's face it mahirap tlga maghanap ng work dito sa australia kahit odd jobs. may mga fb group students nagpopost looking for work for almost 3 months na kahit odd job hirap sila pasukan. basta may backup kang magfinance sayo kakayanin ang student life sa Australia.

    @wen-wen madami namn pong success stories from student to PR. points-based siya kaya very competitive. others are lucky naman na masponsoran. compare to Phils, mas chill ang student life dito, dun sa uni na pinasukan ko andun na lahat ang resources ( books, computer, printer).

    @wen-wen hi, Toowoomba ako nakabase with my family, and sa USQ ako grumaduate. nagexplore ka na ba iyong diretso na PR, like how to get assessment for your occupation?

    Most schools have online application, so kelangan mo magresearch what schools are you looking/targeting. Online application din ang student visa, gawa ka lang ng immiaccount mo. If you are confident without the help of an agent, kayang kaya mo gawin lahat iyan ng DIY.
