    Hello @KidBookid! I'm almost done for my 1st sem here in OZ. Im taking up BSN (1.5 yrs) and pretty much maganda naman mga experiences ( except sa tuition fee part HAHA). I can say okay naman dito, and if you are looking forward to stay here indefinitely...you just have to work hard and pass all the subjects!

    Are u planning to come here on stud visa as well?

    @diazepamie I have a question what are your options after you finish nursing? Apply for another visa?
  • annramiloannramilo SingaporePosts: 7Member
    @diazepamie . After ng study mo sa Au, are you planning to stay there for good? My husband is on student visa right now and planning to work or apply PR after studies,, Do you its possible after the announcement of Au immigration that will tight the 457 approval?
  • KidBookidKidBookid Posts: 20Member
    @diazepamie Sa may Kaplan. Ikaw ba san ka nagenrol?

    Hi everyone. Newbie here @KidBookid? Apo ada ka manen idtoy manang @diazepamie? Lol! Nagkakilala kami dito.

    In line with your query, so far so good. Taking post grad in nursing in Sydney. Unfortunately aside from the tuition fee (sakit sa bangs ang mahal) I don't like my institution.
  • KidBookidKidBookid Posts: 20Member
    @c_l_v_r Yes, a newbie. Looking forward, mukang mahirap din pala maka secure PR after ng studies. San ung school mo?
  • c_l_v_rc_l_v_r Valenzuela Posts: 108Member
    I hope not. Lol! Kelangan lang ng limpak limpak na salapi for you to go on your pathway. IHM

    @c_l_v_r I mean the requirements are more stiff now. Kahit saan naman you will always need the money to fund your endeavors.
  • c_l_v_rc_l_v_r Valenzuela Posts: 108Member
    Lol! Well I can't tell for now but majority says YES! They are much strict with the requirements and the approval of applications. Precisely for those who wanted to be an immigrant in the future.
