    Wow mahal naman ng OSHC quote nila. Kasama mo ba family mo?

    I suggest you arrange for your OSHC na lang. ako kasi solo lang, and I got OSHC for $725 for 2 years from AHM. My uni quoted me around $1,200 sa offer letter.

    @Holy Im not sure. Just ask someone in TAFE through email. They will assist you on the process of applying for credit. With regard sa studies ng mga anak mo, I dont have any idea. There's alot of people here who can help. Good luck. :)

    @netzkeenet ....IMHO medyo sa GTE ka ma question Nyan at just remember that at times, the assigned CO in your case plays a major role so if ang co mo ay medyo meticulous sa GTE madadali ka doon. What if I try mo ang community welfare oo ngat wala siya sa SOl (instead nasa CSOL) siya but if you can study here in oz in that field for two years, then maybe in the course of that 2-year period, you can luckily find an employer who can sponsor you in Rn pathway.

    @netzkeenet ....hi sorry but wala ako idea about south australia state sponsorship....if di pa nasubmit yong docs mo maybe it is good to change the course....but if di na pwede then just pray na hindi maging metikuloso ang case officer sa kurso mo which is unrelated sa course background mo (Genuine Temporary Entrant GTE).....i will pray for your south australia application...sana makalusot ka to gain that additional 5 migration points to qualify for pr application......

    hi everyone. ask ko lang po kung my nakaexperience na dito na deny ang application for SVP 573 na couple dahil newly wed, and my history before na deny ang student visa nung isa? pero now ung primary applicant first time magapply for student visa and plano gawing dependant ung partner na na deny before? ganun po ba sila kahigpit maski nagkataon lng na kakasal namin at gusto namin bigla magapply pa australia? ganito po un my nagadvice na counsellor samin and advice niya wag daw kami sbay ng husband ko pumunta ng australia kasi magiging 50/50 daw application namin,kasi ganyan ung situation ko po ngaun. And my na encounter na daw silang ganyan ang situation na nadeny both. I'm just so confused if I will follow the advise of that counsellor na wag isabay sa application ko ang husband ko or need ko humingi ng help sa iba, like solicitor na ipush application namin na sabay? :(

    @krissybee ...hi krissy...i don't think ganon ka critical talaga kung mag send kayo ng latest application nyo ngayon. OO na deny na ung hubby mo before but let us also consider the circumstances bat siya na deny before.....maybe that has been addressed already...mas maganda pag kayo dalawa ang mag aaply dahil mahirap pag ikaw lang dito ang mag isa ....kasi nga part time ka lang maka pagwork at ang bilis pa naman ng panahon di mo lang alam next semester na pala at ma stress ka na dahil wala ka pa naipon pang tuition mo...kung dalawa kau kahit part time kayo pareho makakaroas rin kayo dahil nga dalawa kayo mag tutulungan sa pag iipon sa tuition. Mas maganda nga kung hanap ka ng masters para unlimited work rights si hubby mo....

    thanks for your response @danyan2001us. Actually pwede naman daw sya sumunod pero palipasin muna ng ilang months, basta nakarating na po ako don. Kaya lng walang kasiguraduhan daw po kung ma approve ung application ng husband ko. Eh ang reason lang naman ng ppgakadeny niya before is my nadelay lng siyang ipasa na paper from the bank. =(

    @krissybee .....sa kaso ng hubby mo, alam mo ba na na deny din si mrs dahil yon din, hindi na update ng agent namin yong isang account namin kaya hindi na credit yong isang account namin dahil hindi updated....then after three days nag re submit kami and luckily with God's blessing, na approve ang visa namin after a week...nag arrange na si mrs sa school niya non at humingi siya ng 2 weeks extension....kaya nong nakarating na kami dito by July 28, 2010, late na si mrs ng 2 weeks sa klase nila. Kaya be strong and positive, magiging ok rin yan si hubby mo.

    Hi everyone,

    Is there any July student visa applicants here? My papers are already lodged at the embassy last week of March, my uncle was my sponsor for the evidence of funds. All of a sudden, the Migration Agent called and said that the Embassy has a new legislation released last March 26, 2014 noting that an eligible family member who can support for the funds are only uncle or aunt who is an Australian citizen, and Australian permanent resident or an eligible New Zealand citizen and usually resident in Australia. Unfortunately my uncle does not fit with the requirement. Does anybody know if this was really true na last March pa ito na update? Baka kasi the Migration Agent wasn't able to inform us ahead or my lapse lang sila. What should we do? :( Please I need your advice :'(
