Working and Living Expenses
Hi all,

I feel like some of the questions may be long shots but here goes. I'll be in Australia by July and was wondering if anyone can help me with any or all the questions below. 😄

1. If i get an international driver's license can I drive immediately with it or what do I do to "convert" it to an Aussie one?

2. I'm a teacher, 11 years experience age 11 to 18. With my 4 years teacher degree can I register to work as a teacher in Aussie? Heading to Adelaide.

3. In the rural areas of Adelaide, the river land to be precise, what's the average costs or renting a unit with a yard?

4. When does school typically start for kids. I have a 2 yo girl turning 3 this July. Are there school fees to be paid in Oz?

5. Long shot query alert!! Are there any naturals/Africans on here that can advise on all things braiding and hair products suitable for afros and mixed kids?

Any or all if you have any ideas. Thanks!!

#2 If you've trained overseas as a teacher, your qualifications may not be recognised in Australia. A friend of mine from OS had to do a bridging course at university as her teaching qualifications and experience were not recognised. You should look into this further and do proper research.

In Australia, a 3 year old would attend pre-school or childcare. A primary or high school education sn't free in Australia for temporary entrants from OS. This is the case in most countries. Again, the cost varies from state to state but you need to research this online before you come.

What visa are you on ?
The answers may be different depending on the visa.

I'm on the 309 and my husband is a citizen.
On teaching, I got an email from the SA board asking me to bring in my credentials for certification. So I wonder if there'll be another course to do after.

Might want to check with where you live as certain states have requirements on how long you can drive on an international licence. So even though you have a valid licence from overseas, doesn't mean you may be able to drive on it!
