My young clients are impatient. They do not want to wait 3 years for a PR visa. A large proportion of them are interested in coming over here as students of cheap courses while waiting in the GSM queue. A few of them have arrived already.

That's a tough one Zoltan.

What are you advising them -that is if you get a chance to provide any advice before they just arrive?

An expensive and extreme option with international student fees being so high plus the costs of keeping body and soul together while on a course and all other ancillary costs.

What is motivating them to take this chance - are things so bad in their home countries or do they perceive it is a risk worth taking?

- A wealth of information about international student's life in Australia. The main sources being the blogs.
- Reliable information about incomes, job opportunities, etc.
- Access to education agents overseas who are able to suggest the right courses and provide adequate accommodation for a competitive price.
- Reasonable hope, that the whole adventure will have a happy end with the PR visa. After all they applied in the GSM program. It is likely to produce an outcome, if slowly.
- A very strong Eastern-European sentiment, which suggests, that only idiots are queuing up at the front door, while the clever are entering through the back door. Those who wait will be turned away, anyhow. History taught us, that this is the usual course of events. Nothing suggests that this one will be different.

Hi Zoltan,

Had a Hungarian student in Melbourne who has been enrolled for ELICOS for 12 months. In my opinion a gross error.

I am willing to take Hungarian students into my Institute.

On 572 they come under level 2

With Join eCOE VET & bachelor they come under level 1 and hence could travel on ETA check the place and make a decision to join a course, change their visa on-shore.

No IELTS for both level 1 & 2

regards
Glenn Pereira

I can understand their sentiments.

And your analogy about the idiots queuing at the front door while others enter via the back is spot on for many Asian cultures as well. I call it being 'pro-active ' with your life - those who want something badly enough will find a way to get it.

Seems like you need to put them Glenn's way. As you know Glenn has run his Institute for years, is highly regarded by many if not all in the VET sector and is very well known in the student market in Victoria as well as by DIAC. If your clients want to do this then they need to make sure they sign up with an outfit that knows what they are doing. Glenn is one of the best around.

Cheers
Sheelagh

Thanks Sheelagh.

The VEt on-shore will stay with major changes once the clean up takes place likely from next week.

However it will be 2 yrs course including Cert III to TR (18 months work expeirence in Nominated occupation) and then PR.

Glenn I dont do students visa, except for the ocaasional ones or the MRT appeals. Is there a danger that PR elegibilty and education may well be delinked not so far in the future. If that happens what will happen to all the students who are enrolling for courses with the prime purpose of PR status .

Scarry.

Thanks Glenn, that's interesting news.

Do you think the report posted in another thread about the youth unemployment rate in Australia rising and migration being partly to blame, will have any impact on these changes you state will happen?

The education sector is massive - dual second/third with tourism I understand - so lots of vested interests to keep it in operation. How to do this and not affect our youngsters?

SO

The On-Shore Student Industry must survive to keep the economy going. Australia also needs India for Trade.


here is the ESOS amendment which will give the Regulatory authority the "instant" power to shut down "dodgy" Institutes

http://www.aph.gov.au/Senate/committ...port/index.htm

the new Off-shore polcy will be targeted to skills in short supply.


Ms. Gillard announced today A $ 100 m training plan for our youth.
