Emigrate to Australia, Part 3

Jul 30, 2019 | Australia, IELTS, IELTS Test

Welcome to the final instalment of our Spotlight Australia series.

In recent times many of our students have chosen to emigrate to Australia – whether it be for the climate or lifestyle. 

To help you follow in their footsteps, we have asked them how they did it, and which services they would recommend. 

In part 1 we recommended migration agents as well as a removal company. In part 2 we introduced you to occupation lists and point calculators.

This month we focus on places where you can work and study.

But first, some important tips…

Start Studying For IELTS Early

The most important tip our students gave us is to start studying for IELTS early. 

Many students approach us 2-3 weeks before the test when our schedules are already full. Good teachers are not sitting around waiting for students. 

Book your lessons a month in advance of when you want to begin, and make sure you are giving yourself enough time to prepare for the test.

Sort Out Your Visa

You will need to make sure you passport is valid for the full length of your intended stay in Australia. If you need a new passport – order one now.

When you have it, visit the Australian High Commission or Embassy in your home country to organise a visa.

Sort Out The Rest Of Your Paperwork

Make sure you have your offer letter, copy of study records, original identification documents, and written character references to help you secure accommodation and/or employment.

Accommodation can be hard to find, and our students say they go to house viewings with all their documents. This enables them to move quickly when they find something suitable.

Have a Personal MOT

Before you set off make sure you are in tip-top condition by visiting your doctor, optician and dentist. 

Make sure you get any medication you need before you leave.
