Either he shows his degree for a masters or his masters for a PhD. They want a progression, very hard for them to give when he already has a masters.

Okay thanks, but in my case i graduated in 2013 for a 4yrs course and its about 5yrs educational gap now. Can my work experiences be used to fill same gap. Been working in a similar field for over 4yrs now.

It will more than fly, what he need to do is to present a strong SOP stating the need of a second Master and preferably he should go for any of the AL1 Uni. Countless number of naija doing their second Msc in which most presented their previous Msc cert while applying.

What's the meaning of AL1 uni?

And can one apply for another masters after studying 2yrs for the first one in Australia. Eg Assuming after 2yrs of study, I get a post study Visa and before the visa runs out I apply for another master's degree will I be granted visa to do that?

AL1, AL2 and AL3 are ranking of Unis according to their assessment level, AL1 Unis are expensive and require less scrutiny compare to other assessment level Unis. You can apply for another masters before or after your post study work visa.
PS: post study work visa is once in a lifetime.

OK thanks.
By the time one concludes the 2nd master's degree, I would apply for PR.

Where can I check this ranking now?

Hi everyone.

A quick question, does the grant come as a mail or you have to send in your passport for visa stamp?

Hello boss,

Please I will appreciate if you can suggest schools I can apply to for my PhD in Electrical Engineering (Electric Power Systems) in Australia. Also I hope to get scholarship, what are my chances with an MEng CGPA of 4.09/5.0 (NB: I will be rounding up my masters by July this year, that's my coursework CGPA, I actually got that assuming I get a B in my thesis, I hope to get an A by God's grace) And when is the best time to apply for PhD in Australia (February or July).

Thanks in anticipation

Hi bro, I cannot suggest schools for you as I am not in the same field as you. Besides, there aren't that many universities in Australia - so you can actually go through each's website to ascertain which ones offer your proposed course. PhD applications aren't that easy and I would advise that you have a quick read on the admission process. I believe with your CGPA, you'll get admissions into the top 5 Universities here. Mind you, without a publication (at least), getting a full ride scholarship can be really difficult. The first thing is to identify the schools you would like to go and start contacting potential supervisors as that is one hurdle you must scale before you can apply for admissions.

Sorry this was typed in a hurry - hope you get the general gist.

Good day House,

I am new here. I have a first degree in Sociology and interested in applying for a Masters in Social Work in Australia. However, my limitation seem to be in terms of funds knowing schools in Aussie dont come cheap.
I have a budget of like 12M, self sponsored though. However, my doubt is if I will be able to get the grant after I must have paid part of my tuition to the school for CoE from that very sum. School of interest is WSU with a yearly fee of $25400.

Secondly, will it be possible to raise my second year fees while working as a student(20hrs/week), knowing that i am not expecting any support from back home, no extra sponsor jus me?

Again, does the embassy still request for SoA from AL1 schools, as I noticed that sometime in 2017, they started asking for it though randomly, from students who got their CoE from AL1 schools. Asking because WSU is AL2.

Thanks in anticipation.

Good day everyone, I have been a silent reader for quite sometime now and I must comment the effort you all put into this forum. I have recently been refused visa from the Australian government (it is life changing I must say and I am truly sorry for those that have been denied). However, I was denied on the GTE grounds. I was supposed to resume 4th but was denied on the 6th of march.. I have questions..
1- refusal based on GTE how do I get around that?
2- can I request for a new coe from the school? After my denial and tell them? My agent told me i wont get a new coe, she adviced i get a refund... Tho I told her to send my deferral to the school till November so I can reapply. P. S- I already paid first semester tuition and insurance.
3- if let's say I miraculously get the new coe from my school, what are my chances of getting a grant if I reapply?
4-will other countries give me a visa if I apply to those countries stating I have been denied?

Please who can I call or discuss with?
Thanks �

Your agent is right because DIBP will notify your school about the refusal, apply for your refund. The good thing is you can reapply, there are some people on this forum that got their grants after the second application. According to you, your refusal is based on GTE, what is the correlation between your intended program and your degree? Which assessment level Uni did you apply to?

I am really sorry. Refusal must have been a painful experience. You can always try again, I have seen testimonies here, but what are the actual reasons stated?. They must have explained the reasons you didn't meet the GTE requirement. Perhaps you didn't demonstrate incentives to return home.

Victoria Uni is AL2, you will need a very fat bank account of a closely related relative and numerous documents to support your GTE, most Nigerians in VU switch to the Uni after arriving Australia. Try any AL1 Uni, i am very certain you're going to get an offer, then repackage your application with a strong SOP.

Mostly, they said cos I am young and unmarried, working in a family owned business and I haven't demonstrated that I have intentions of coming back.
Can I reapply given the said reason for the refusal? What can I do?
The money wasn't the issue.
If I decide to reapply, what do I say?
P. S- I studied 3yrs undergrad outside nigeria and I returned same month I finished even tho I had an extra year visa. Can I include my visa and exit visa? How to I write a new compelling sop if that's possible?

Thank you for the assistance. Do u think the school will play a huge role? My account statement wasn't the issue. It was over 40m combined (personal and business)
I dunno exactly what went wrong. Do you think other schools will give me an offer following the reason for the refusal?

Your refusal won't prevent you from getting an offer from other schools besides a trial won't hurts, just make sure its AL1 Uni.

Your SOP should have been more convincing, and Yes, you should have included the exit visa. They want you to convince them you'd return to Nigeria after your studies.

Being a self sponsored won't help your situation. And yes, 12m wont be enough considering your fees. They can ask for SOA.

About being able to pay your fees by working as a student? I doubt the possibility.

NOTE: I am not in Australia, I'm just about to start my visa processing.

Your choice of program calls for concern even if you apply to AL1 Uni, your chance of getting grant is 50/50. The few Nigerians that have meet studying social work switch to the program after arriving while some enrolled in the program after their initial program. DIBP doesn't request for SOA for AL1 Uni except in some exceptional cases but that doesn't mean you shouldn't have one on standby and regarding working to pay for the rest of your tuition, only few students usually pull that stunts without external assistance, main reason why most ppl switch to a low paying school after arriving even with that, it is not easy.

Ok thanks.
But for the course, Social work and Sociology are closely related. Infact in some schools both are fused together. Both look at the same areas in terms of social justice, human right, individual behaviour, environmental influence on behaviour, issues on socialization and resocializations, crime, deliquent behaviour, etc.

I think the only set back here is finance.

DIBP staffs are psychologist, one of the factors they will look into is the prospect of social work as an occupation in your country, this is to determine whether you are coming genuinely.
