Hi All, I hope everyone is well and also your family. As a way to extend help during this time of crisis, Visa Consort in partnership with Pinoy AU, would like to offer further reduced rate (for a limited period) to anyone who would wish to engage a migration agent service. 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.
Welcome to the New and Upgraded Pinoy AU Forum! We have only updated a couple of times since 2010. Apology it took some time. Some of the features are still being migrated. Please feel free to report here or email me at [email protected] if you will encounter any issues. Thank you.

    maganda yong speech ni christopher pyne yesterday for us all international students here in OZ at saka sa mga nagnanais magstudy dito...one of the important points he brought was ang dati daw na govt dito sa OZ ay hindi masyado supportive sa mga international students while sila sa present government ay sisikapin nila na magiging maganda na naman ang takbo ng international student and education industry dito sa OZ dahil isa rin itong malaking resources for the government....

    @danyan2001us Thanks for starting this thread. Just wanna ask, ever since nagschool si wife mo, bumili na kayo ng books? If yes, how's the price? Need to include this also to our budget.

    hi sis, nong sa tafe ang prices ng mga books are ranging from 60$ to 160$ pero swerte si wifey dahil at that time may friend siya na ahead sa kanya so hiram lang siya ng books from her. Pero ngayon na nasa masters na siya, sabi niya ganon pa rin ang range ng books though at this time anybody can just borrow from the library. Maganda rin aw at nakakatulong kung meron ka ipad kasi madownload mo lang doon ang mga lectures. Sa studies nya ngayon, hindi na siya bumibili ng books dahil downloaded na sa ipad.

    @danyan2001us Hi there! I would like to know how did you go about preparing for your job hunt there? My husband is going to take up his Masters course hopefully early next year and I will be his dependent. Did you take IELTS and have your skills assessed before you landed in oz? Just want to learn from successful student's dependents like you. Really inspired with your posts. Iba talaga pag nagtutulungan ang magasawa. : ) God bless.. TIA!

    Hi, thanks for your affirmation...ang masabi ko sa experiene namin na it was accompanied by luck and determination....plus ang malaki na factor talaga ay prayers...alam mo ba na one time noon August 15, 2010 early morning na down kami dalawa ni mrs at naiiyak na siya dahil kunti na lang natira sa allowance namin....at wala pa akong work...buti na lang mga noon time sa tulong ng prayers nakarealize kami na if magiging negative at down kami wla kami patutunguhan ...so yon tuloy na naman ang job hunting ko thru seek ang dami ko nasubmit na application dyan sa seek jobsite may interview naman ako charity at call center work kaya lang hndi natuloy....then came itong friend namin na matagal na rito at siya ang nagrecommend ng isang agency sa akin..yong ang start ng work ko dito....hindi na ako nag ielts at hindi ko na rin pina assess ang background ko sa HR manager sa atin dahil hindi siya related sa accounting field ni mrs.....then after nong sa agency nagiging dishwasher ako sa restaurant ng friend ng pinsan ko then nagiging factory worker na naman ng 2 companies before dito sa company na pinapasukan ko ngayon....kaya advice ko sa inyo na hwag mawalan ng determination lalo la pag andito na kayo dahil ang laki ng investment nyo (time, money everything)....at expect na for your start here may mga challenges talaga.....may mga relatives ba kayo or friens dito? Good luck anyway....

    matagal tagal na rin pala wala update dito sa thread na ito. Any interesting news from you guys regarding sa visa application nyo at sa mg bagong dating na mga students dito sa OZ. Ang trend ngayon dito sa Melbourne ( have no idea with other states though) ay medyo mahirap maghanap ng job ang mga new students lalo na ngayon pa end na ang year 2013. Hopefully next year mas marami sana chances for our bros and sis lalo na sa mga bagong dating. kasama ko sa couples for Christ may kakilala siya na may cleaning so if ever gusto nyo mag try mag cleaner dito sa melbourne inform me about it and I will coordinate it with my bro from CFC. happy holidays everyone.
