Hello!

Hi!!!
I'm Luca, from Italy! I'm 16 years old and I am a student. In Italy there is a
awkward situation, there is no a tomorrow for new generations, and I would to relocate in Australia for studying and getting a life there. Every day, I search in Internet some videos and info about this fabolous country, and i dream a life in these places. I attend the third year of high school in Milano, i study information technology and telecommunications.
In your opinion, what should I do? Should I finish the school here and begin the university in Australia or relocate now and finish the high school over there?

P.S. Excuse me if i don't speak English very well

Highschool

Hi Luca,

I would think, and it is my opinion only, that unless you were going to Australia with your parents then you would have to look at studying at a boarding school like St Paul's International college in Moss Vale New South Wales. You might want to at least wait until you are 18 and try for a University course in Australia instead. You can also work on improving your English language skills in the mean time.

Hope it works out for you.

Thank you very much! Sincerely our idea was to relocate with my family, but my parents are 46 years old and they aren't graduates, so it would be difficult.... But i read, in the Internet, that if I am a student (in Italy I'm minor because I'm under 18) a parent is licensed to accompany me in Australia. The question is: my Italian certificate is acknowledged all over the world? If not, i think it's useless to finish my studies here, you know what I mean?

Study

Hi Luca,

As I understand it, you can finish high school in Australia if you go to boarding school there, without your parents. I don't know that they would be allowed to come to Australia for you to study at a non boarding school but I don't really know about that, perhaps you should ring the Australian embassy in Italy and ask directly.

In my case I was halfway through studying nursing in the USA but realized I would have to do more study in Australia anyway to get my qualifications recognized there. It made more sense to finish my studies there where I hope to live, than have to do much of what I have done over again anyway. I would think it would be the same for you. It is easier for Australian employers to check and trust qualifications earned in Australia than overseas.

You're right: in the next days, we're going to visit (or to call) the Aussie Embassy in Milan for more informations. But, for what you said, i think i should study there, anyway, in order to find work and get a life there. I have a cousin in Sydney, she's 33 and married with a son, so i prefer to study and live in that city...
