This is relevant advice but studying in regional area might not be enough. There are some challenges with studying in regional area.
I.e Jobs are limited.

Also the way I see it ehn, only health related are somewhat sure of getting pr now. And once the govt feels they have had enough, they will close or reduce the number needed.

It reminds me of some indian guys that were my flat mate. after studying, to get PR they went to study trade courses. Plumbing, carpentry etc.when govt realized the number of applicants via that route increased they took it out of the list and threw them into jeopardy.

Sometimes ehn, chasing these govt policies for PR is tough. Imagine a guy very good in law, just to get PR switches to Nursing. This is one reason canada beats Australia, once u graduate from thier uni it's as good as having PR.

It's tough, but we move.

You're right. However, it is still easier to obtain PR if one studies in Regional Australia. At least even though you don't get it via 189 or 190 visa, you're almost sure of getting it through the 489 visa.

With regards to jobs, it depends on how enterprising the individual is. Some regional areas have enough jobs to do also. Since I got to Wollongong for instance, I've never been without job. Infact I'm running a cleaning service and I'm currently overwhelmed by the amount of jobs coming in... so much that I'm starting to look for extra hands.

At the end of the day, it's about adaptation and discovering the opportunities around you.

Yes, Primary school teacher is eligible for PR either via the 190 skilled nominated visa subclass or the 489 skilled regional (state or territory nominated) visa subclass.

Secondary school teacher is eligible for 189 skilled independent (points tested) visa, 190 skilled nominated visa and 489 skilled regional visa (state or territory nominated) all of which lead to PR.

However, it's easier to get these if you study in a regional area. Even though you don't have enough points for 189, you can get 489 which leads directly to PR after 2 or 3 years on the visa.

Other universities with campuses in regional areas are University of south Australia. Their regional campuses provide course options which includes Primary education.

University of Tasmania is another with regional campuses, Charles Darwin university, Edith Cowan university, Murdoch university, University of Adelaide, Southern cross university e.t.c

You can track it from your immi account. The reference number (VLN) on the online application receipt and your date of birth will be required. You can ask your agent for the immi account as well as the visa application details if you don't have them yet.

My wife applied for VISA on 11/12/2020.
When is she likely to get a response from the relevant authority?

Good morning all, please I need advice from the experienced people here.

I plan to migrate through the PR route directly.

I am 36 years of age with 8 years experience in banking.

I studied public administration and graduated with first class.

I will be sponsoring myself with account statement of 8m.

I have a wife and two kids but will like to leave alone and bring them over later.

I will like to know my chances of getting nominated from a regional area in Australia.

Swift responses will be appreciated.

Its hard to say at the moment due to the Covid situation as I believe there might be a huge back-log of applications that yet to be dealt with. You know, borders were closed for sometime and visa processing suspended. However, if i'm to speculate, I'd say expect a response by late february or early March. Otherwise, she might need to defer her admission till July and request for a new coe.

I think the link below is the appropriate thread for your enquiry. You should post it there so as not to derail this particular thread meant for student's visa enquiries.

Marketing to Nursing is a big leap that would ring a bell to admissions and Visa officers. Moreover you need to have completed some biology units in undergrad to be qualified for most graduate entry MSc nursing degrees. Also, you will need a strongly convincing SOP to even get Msc in public health with a Bsc in marketing.
If bent on the nursing degree, your best bet might be to get in on any viable course and switch to Bsc nursing asap. It will be a long journey, but with determination, nothing is impossible.
Another suggestion is to start looking for another career path course.

Please you give me names of some schools in a city of close to a city like somewhere one could settle down with affordable cost of living, feeding, accommodation amongst others...a city one can easily settle with his family.

I submitted my own application on the 8th of December and it is presently on further assessment on the statute. Does anyone knows how long it takes to get to final decision status from the current status.
Secondly my course is supposed to commence by 1st of march. Do I begin d diferment process now or just wait to mid june cos I don't want a situation where d visa does not come out on time and d school telling me I can't differ anymore.

I have a Bsc in computer science and am planning to go for Msc in computer science in computer network security field. plss what are my chances of getting PR after my Masters in Research study in Australia.
Re: General Australian Student Visa Enquiries Part 3 by VickayThrills: 6:34pm On Jan 08
Happy New Year Fam...

I was given an offer by WSU last November which I haven't accepted yet because I'm not okay with it.
I applied for Masters in Social Work but my offer came with a Bridging course in Social Work to start by July 2021 while the Masters will start by January 2022.
I suspect this must have been as a result of my degree which was in History & International Studies.

My major worry is, will the bridging course be a stumbling block to my visa chances.

Again, I just made another application to UTAS through my agent.

What's my best option please?

Parramatta is not a regional area.
I can't specifically tell you what to do as the final decision lies with you. I am emphasising on regional areas due to recent happenings, a lot of students are at cross road haven finished school and exhausted their 485 and PR is not in sight, they have no other options other than going back to school in regional areas. Whatever your final decision is, make sure that you graduate from a place where you will be eligible for 190 or worst-case scenario 491.

plss can u list the regions that are eligible for 190 cos am just seeing this for the first time and have been following this thread.

Kindly find time to list it out cos am planning on studying in Australia with 4.30/5 in computer science and I wanna be eligiible for the 190 visa

Nice!!

I'm a member of EA-ITEE and having attended few cybersecurity webinars, I can assure you Pr will be given to you on the platter of Gold after completing your Msc.

Personnels with the skillset and certifications/degree in Network/Cybersecurity are in high demand globally and Australia being farther away(Oceania) from most countries makes cybersecurity experts well sought after.

The demand of cybersecurity skillset in Australia military alone is mind blowing not to talk of the private and other public sectors of the Australia economy.

PS: I'm just a cybersecurity enthusiastic and not an expert or personnel!.

@the bolded, you're doing really well, you just need a mentor to fine-tune you and the sky will be your limit, if you're ready to put in the work.

For the scholarship, I'm a small boy/applicant like you too(graduated last 2 years).

Now, what I know is you can get 50% scholarship by merely applying to study Msc course work at Macquarie University with your cgpa and the added advantage of your Bsc thesis.
Worth of scholarship;
A$10k VC scholarship and A$5k African scholarship.

Also, you can easily get full Msc(Research) scholarships in the UK, the USA and also Australia for Msc cybersecurity.

You know what, shoot me a mail I'll point you in the right direction(put you in a scholarship group) but the thing is I'm very busy so you will have to do lots of research yourself.

Subject to other suggestions, you should try to provide analysis showing that there are several opportunities in Nigeria for the kind of skills you will get from the proposed course of study. So, a lot of companies will be willing to employ you when you return to Nigeria
