Hey Guys,

how much do the Study visa's cost? Do you pick where and what you want to study and try and head out there? I'm unsure of everything really.

Hi there,

The student visa application fee is AUD$565 at the moment. For more information on how to apply for a student visa, steps to take to find a course you are interested in and advice, it would smart to contact one of the free agents that deals with the Australian Institutions. Most of them offer free advice and enrolment services into Australian colleges or universities. One of them is helloaussie dot com

Good luck

Just a quick comment. ALL education agents supposed to provide free services as they are paid by the education providers. I would recommend you to keep a distance from agents charging you for the basic service. They should provide you all of their services for free, but unfortunately it is very rare.

Very true! Agreed! Always look for agents that offer their services for free. In my opinion, in the education industry, in general, if an agent offers it's services for free it means that their business is well and they offer qualitative superior services because they don't experience that financial pressure that most agents that charge a fee for their services do.

Know these facts before comming to australia for higher education

There are lot of different facts which are never told by the agents /IDP because

these people get a commission when they send someone to higher education in

AUS and believe me, the commission is usually your 1st semister tution fee.

1) If you're comming to this country make sure you have the complete tution fees

ie for all 4 semisters and your expenses around 1000$ per month (300-500$ room

rent, 200$ for food, 120$ public transport, 200$ for books / internet and other

stuff). [uni fees for 24 month(40,000$) + 24 month your expense (24000$)

equals 64000$ (if every thing goes as planned) (ie 30 LAKHS)

2) Do not think for a moment that you will get a job when you land here, no it

does not happen, People have tried and tried and failed. they finally end up doing

dish washing jobs / security guard jobs / taxi drivers jobs/ door to door sales

man jobs and most of them are either on commision basis or very heavily under

paid. Above all you can work only 20hrs / week and if you work more immigration

can deport you back to india.

3)Now the actual education part, you will have assignments and there is nobody

to help as in India. If you copy or referred to some books you need to let the

lecturer know about it, if you dont you will be failed in that unit as per plagarism.

Plz dont take this lightly as if you fail any unit you will have to pay around 3000$

do this unit again and give the exam. Now that means you will need to get a

extension on your student visa and that is another 500$ cost.

4) Now finally the for the grand finale, when you finish your course you wont be

able to apply for any graduate programs or campus placement type jobs as you

are not a permanent resident or Aus citizen. As companies would not like to invest

on a person who does not have a proper residency in this country. For getting a

permanent resident you need to have at least 8 bands in all sections in IELTS

which is very very hard and if you get a IELTS band 8 in all bands from India it is

not valid for applying for Permanent Residency. you can apply for permanent

residency if you have a band of 8 in all sections or if you have relative in AUS which

again has its types.
It is this very reason why even after completing MS in Electronic, telcom,

networking, Micro Elec, Civil you dont get a job in your field. Now applying for PR

is also an expensive, it costs around 2750$(1.3 lakhs Rs) to apply for one, You will

be asked to undergo a medical exam which costs around 300$(14000 Rs).

5) Fianlly Aus is not a racist country but Australians would prefer to work with

australian or brits and definetly not with indians or other people from asia. Its the

same sentiment we have too.


To sum it all up, its a gamble of 30 - 35 lakhs, with a winning percentage of 0%

until you have a some relative who can sponcer your PR or if you get 8 bands in all

sections as per the current rule. Aus gov will make all kinds of rule to make sure

you leave the country the day u finish education. No company will take you in.
Many indians have fallen in this trap and its their family who feel the brunt

financially.

All this things will be realised the day you enter Australia. The most important

being the number 4, the grand finale.

Now for the good part, If you want to just come here study with every thing paid

by your dad in India and would leave after the completion of the course with out

applying for PR or work, then its a very beautiful place to live in. Your thinking will

change, you will have lot of international exposure and you will miss this place for

rest of your life. Do make sure you visit New Zealand South Island(heaven on

earth).

Well for boys, Brothels, strip clubs, booze are legal, you can have them as much

you want but will cost $$$$ you though and you can pay all of them via your credit

card and you will get a "receipt". Its not a taboo as in India......

Now you have all the information, WELCOME TO AUSTRALIA....

Hi man99999999,

It sounds very bitter.

I know the immigration options have dramatically changed during the last couple of years, but that should not be the first thing motivating your studies.

Job opportunities are everywhere for open minded students. Call centers, constructions, hospitality, administration, freelancing and many more jobs are available for students even from India. Most of the time you even have advantage compare to other students as your English skills are high.

I highly recommend to come to study in Australia, if you can shift your focus from immigration purposes. As soon as you start to focus on positive things you will find an open minded employer to sponsor you.
