The DET does not sponsor overseas students I got informed not long ago. Only independant schools...
It will not really help me unless they agree to sponsor me for a PR...which is really not easy....


Then Catholic schools might be worth pursuing, dd1. Lots of them in Victoria, & NSW, too, I'd imagine. BTW you don't have to be Catholic, necessarily. But they'd expect you to be supportive of "the Catholic ethos".

You might also consider WA, Queensland, etc., while you're at it.

Hello msolga,

Well I went to see 2 different migration agent and they gave me 2 different views about my possibilities...so now I don't know what I should do...

One of them told me that it is possible with a temporary visa to work 6 months full time then ask for 5 bonus points for Australian work experience. and the other one is telling me that this way is not possible....so now I have no clue about what I should try or not...

Another option would be to continue one more year and do a Master of Teaching...the problem is that it is very expensive and I did not expect that at all...I was hoping to finally finish studying this year....Sad

I'm still undecided... Confused

It's hard to know the answer to your dilemma, dd1. I honestly don't know whose right. The Immigration Department is probably the place to get the right answer.

It does sound sounds pretty stressful for you right now.

Good luck!

I mean the politician in your electorate who has been elected to the federal parliament. S/he will have an office somewhere in the electorate. Local people often approach them for advice or assistance. If you're not sure who they are & where to find their office, trying doing an internet search: local federal member for the city/suburb of ..... (where you live). If you're still not sure, ask around ... the neighbours, the post office, the local council.

Seems hard to believe that you wouldn't get a favourable response by applying for teaching jobs in regional areas. God knows we're always hearing about skills shortages, particularly so in "the bush".

Hello msolga and Wilso..

I will try your advice msolga..I will go to a professional first and see what he says...it's expensive but I have to do it so that I know where to stand...

Wilso I totally agree with you but apparently the immigration program is getting harder because many overseas students got their residency easily but because of their English level could not find a proper job even after gratuating....grrrr why when I have to start my application they change everything grrrr... Twisted Evil

Anyway I try to stay positive...I have studied for 4 years I thought this would be enough but not really...

Apparently working in regional area would not be a problem for me but my big issue here is that different migration agent told me different things..One is I can...the other one is I have to be careful...In the end I have no clue of who is saying the right advice or not....soooooooooooo I have no idea Sad

Its true - DIMIA are a bit slack in offering helpful advice. We came in through the back door, so to speak - 3 month Working Holiday Visa, employer offered to sponsor us fo four years at the end, we then settled, got two years experience and applied for residency. The residency application took a week to prepare and three weeks to process - all done in a month.

If you go for the 6 month Visa - you will at least be able to demonstrate knowledge and understand of Australia and be able to get a reference from an employer.

My wife and I are in the process of applying for a spouse visa now. It's the two exact same forms that we had to use to get a prospective marriage visa, and we've got to send all the same paperwork all over again. I had to provide evidence of my Australian citizenship (birth certificate) when we first applied. That required two copies. One to be submitted with my sponsorship application and one to be submitted with Nee's visa application. I then had to supply my birth certificate in order to get a marriage certificate. I've now got to supply another two copies of my birth certificate with my wife's visa application and my sponsorship application. I'm wondering just how many [email protected] times I've got to prove my citizenship in this country.

Wilso...I understand your feeling...but it's just a matter of time for you Wink Be patient and I'm sure you will get there Wink

amapom...yes but I do have some work experience already that is not the pb at all...the issue here is to know if with the visa that allows me to work I can ask for the 5 bonus points....


Thanks msolga...I hope things will go well...

I come from a smaller country town, first of all, they usually dont have highschools and therefore do not have the subjects spoken of, secondly they are always public schools and small at that.

I wish you the best of luck with this, it is an extremely hard process. Took friends of mine 3 yrs to get recidency here (from england) and they were doing it from over there. Ended up costing them tens of thousands of dollars for the 5 of them to move here. But, I do believe they are there for a reason, and Im sure if you understand our values and how beautiful our country is, you also understand the reason they are in place and it is so difficult :wink:
