Hi all,

New to the forum. I'm a Dutchie living in Australia, dreading going into the partner 820/801 procedure. On a working holiday and trying to register relationship with Births, Deaths & Marriages Victoria first. Have been in a relationship with my partner since November 2011 but only been in Australia a bit more than a year (put together, so BDM might give me pain about not having been here long enough consecutively).

I have a question though. I understand that when you apply for a partner visa on-shore you go on a BVA with full work rights. Do you have study rights on the BVA as well or do you have to wait til you're granted the partner visa? Cause I've found it's impossible to find work with my Dutch degrees and I'm concerned about being unemployed during the 12-15 months wait if I can't at least take up a TAFE. Don't want to delay partner visa by going on study visa though, not eligible for skilled migrant.
