6/5/06 11:32 pm - mortifyd - Visa services?

I have been getting emails from companies that promise to help with the visa process (and finding one I qualify under) for about $300USD - are these scams, or are there some that have really worked for people?

1/16/06 06:13 pm - mortifyd - IT certifications advice?

Howdy, I'm new. I'm starting a new educational path to boost my chances of getting a visa to live and work in Australia and could use some advice. I don't have a uni degree, when I do finish it I will have a bachelors in Anthropology.

I currently work in banking (back office, non-management) and I'm trying to sort out what would be the best IT certifications to get an employer sponsorship or to qualify for a visa as a skilled worker - without shelling out a couple hundred bucks to get assessed through a service. I have access to all sorts of training info to get certifications (mostly Microsoft) through my work - but I'm not sure what will be the best bet. Anyone have any suggestions or links that aren't in Governmentese?

Hi There! My name is Alana and I currently live in Canada. I've just finished my undergrad and I've actually recently applied to Teachers College in Australia. Now I'm trying to decide between 2 in Melbourne Victoria, Deakin and LaTrobe. I have to have my decision in the next few days so if anyone has any ideas at all it would really help me out; I've been very torn.
If I go to LaTrobe I would be in the Bundoora Campus and if I go to Deakin I would be in Burwood. Which campus is prettier? Which school is better? And where would I get a better Australian experience? I've been doing so much research and asking around here but these are the kinds of things that are very hard to get a hold of when you don't have first of or second hand access.

Please, any comments or suggestions are welcome no matter how minor; I just need somewhat of a deciding factor.

I'm so excited to have found this community! Thanks a lot everyone!!!

Hi everyone,

I cross posted this to a bunch of communities yesterday but somehow I missed this community. That was a bit stupid because it's really the most appropriate one.

Anyway, I just started a community called new_to_melbs, which is for people who have recently arrived in Melbourne, whether they're just passing through or setting down for a long stay. It's a way to meet people, get advice, and share stories. You should all join!


9/3/05 11:50 am - frugihoyi - College for International Students

I am currently studying Digital Media at a university in the United States. I will be graduating in December, and then I'm moving somewhere. I would really like to go to Australia and go to graduate school there, but I don't know anything about this. Does anyone know a university with a Digital Media graduate program? Also, does anyone have any idea how much it would cost for an international student? Can anyone direct me to where I could find any of this information? Thanks!!!

I'm new to this community so I decided I'd post to say hi. I recently spent something like 3 weeks in Australia, starting in Cairns and travelling (slowly but steadily) toward Sydney where we left after a few days. I absolutely fell in love with the places we went to and am definitely planning to move there in my later life. I had put Cairns in my interests which led to finding this community so thanks guys!
