Australia for 4 Months - is it worth it? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hey all,

    Nearly finished up with my first year of uni and planning on taking a summer out most likely the 2014 summer to visit/work in Australia.

    Settling down in Australia has been a core part of my '10 year plan' for a very long time so I feel that I definitely owe myself at least a few months out there to experience it beforehand.

    I know that only 1 work experience visa is issued per lifetime and ideally I would do the full duration but with Uni this isn't possible. I also don't see myself having time after graduating as like I've mentioned I want to get on with things job wise asap to be able to proceed with my plan to emigrate.

    Anyone have any input or suggestions for my situation? Much love.

    i probably wouldn't bother using a working holiday visa for that but if you can afford it you could just holiday there for the few months

    I went there twice in the space of a year, with the same Working Holiday Visa. You can only get a WHV if you are under 30 so if you would go to Australia after uni for a year, then I'd recommend doing that. If not, then I'd say go for it. The second time I went, I stayed for 4 months, worked for 2 of them and traveled round for the other 2. While it was a bit of a rush to squeeze everything in, I went round the majority of the country and visited all the main places. You can also get a normal holiday visa if you don't intend to work whilst you are there but I don't know if that only allows you to stay for X amount of days.
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
