goshen:

Yeah,that explains why I chose them. Am inclined towards off Campus, possibly a suburb close to the sch. I only paid 4000 dollars commitment fee for the enrolment.
I'm inclined towards off-campus too.
What does commitment fee mean? Is it part of their fee?
Re: General Australian Visa Enquiries by RedReact: 8:25pm On Dec 23, 2012
cconcept: you guys should start dropping practical tips on how you went about your applications.
Only goshen and bbamega are the ones that can provide info on the documents submitted now, as I have not gotten to their stage.
Jennykadry is another person that can give detailed info abt documents too but she has not been featuring on the thread for some time now.
Have you made an application to your desired school?

Just to confirm your enrolment. It's part of the tuition, i.e, it would be netted off your over all tuition fee. Your CoE would be sent to you after making this deposit.

No problem at all. I was asked by someone if the fund for fee was available as against March admission time cos that could cause delay and I told him funding would be no problem.
When the time comes for those payment, I will contact you sha.
For the accomodation, you will also hint me on anything u get o. I wanted to ask a guy at Monash uni abt accomodation but he wasn't replying my mails, so I stopped sending any enquiry.

Payment is also no big deal. When you are admitted, they would send you an offer letter, with two options of accepting the offer; online and the hard copy. I chose to accept online, because its faster.I paid with my ATM card. Accommodation in Syd is quite expensive, am looking at shared accommodation to cut my expense. I have not made arrangement for now sha.

I will intimate you on how it's going when I get to that level.
It's not only accomodation dt is expensive @ sydney, cost of living in total. That's where Canada is a lil bit fairer than Aus. I am thinking dt there might be cheap accomodation by January.

Research is good in Australia. You can try out Australian National University or check through the list of their schools online.

ANU, UniSyd, Melbourne and UNSW are quite good research institutes with appreciable government funding. Not sure of their scholarship or tuition waiver programmes for Phd. You may have to browse through their websites. Scholarship isnt so common in Aussy like the US sha.

Browse through their website, all required info would definitely be available.

One thing I hate about their system is the unavailability of scholarship. But it's like Phd is different at ANU from dt of others like UniSyd and the rest. ANU is more funded for research.
If one were to get PR, scholarship will be more open and tuition will be greatly slashed.

Re: General Australian Visa Enquiries by RedReact: 9:47am On Dec 26, 2012
@bbamega,
Are there cheap unis in Aussie? I would like to know. I didn't check much of their schools though, cos I was looking for one with strong inclination towards research. One thing I noticed is that all unis participate in the SVP program. Could it be or I didn't see right?

@mercylicious,
The thread is not much populated unlike Canada and US. I think it may be due to the distance and the cost of schooling there too, but Aussie offers same opportunity Canny offers. Same with New Zealand too.
As regards to ur question, bbamega has explained everything. You can ask further and our brethren will help you.

how is phd admission done-,do they have funding for international students?i have read about Phd been fully funded,is it like that over there?
Re: General Australian Visa Enquiries by jennykadry(f): 2:24pm On Dec 26, 2012
I highly doubt it's fully funded for international students. Permanent residents and citizens are fully funded but not international students.
Re: General Australian Visa Enquiries by RedReact: 2:56pm On Dec 26, 2012
@Jenny,
I am glad you are back with us here. How is Aussie? We are trying as much as possible to give ourselves clue and info on how to go about the process of studying in Aussie. I don't know of Wahabcoal now and beau4lyf too has not shown up since, but we have bbamega and goshen who would soon be on their way to Aussie soon.
I will join them too, just that I just submitted my application at UNSW and UWA (but prefer UNSW).

First of all, you are good to send in your application for March 2014 by September. Nevertheless, Australian schools have 2 intake sessions per year; February/March and July. You can still make it for July intake too, provided it's open for your program option.
As per scholarship, they don't have it for international students, except such a student is a permanent resident.
As per toefl/ielts, Aussie prefers ielts to toefl but it can still be used; provided you have written the exam.

Happy New Year friends!
God, who made us see this year, will make us eat of the riches and splendour contained in it. Every virtue meant to enhance our values shall be released for us all in Jesus name (Amen).
No tales but testimony.

@bbamega,
When are you leaving?
@goshen,
What is the latest now?
@Jennykadry,
New year greetings from all of us in Nigeria. By the end of 2013, we would be celebrating and counting our blessings together when we join you over there.
Re: General Australian Visa Enquiries by RedReact: 9:55am On Jan 01, 2013
@Wahabcoal,
I can spot you. What's happening? We've not seen you for long. Give us some news, I mean good news.
