I am currently a dental nurse in the uk looking to move to Australia. My dream if it is possible would be to study dental hygiene therapy in Australia however I am not qualified as a therapist in the uk but I do know even if you are you have to re-sit the exam for Australia. Do I need other qualification and is it possible ?
Many thanks
Steph

The lists you need to look at for Skilled emigration are the SOL & CSOL. Go to Department of Immigration & Citizenship for general info & skillselect for specific visas. I doubt if dental nurse is skilled enough tbh to qualify for skilled migration, but if you can afford to study Dental Hygiene Therapy in Aus you apply for a student visa once you've found a suitable course & enrolled . Apparently studying as an International student costs megabucks, but do look into it all.

Agreed, you'd need to look 1, studying, 2.being accepted as this particular program can be quite competitive, 3. Applying for a student visa. 4.once accepted and in Aus you can work up to 20 hrs per week while studying.
Another option is New Zealand. I know this is an Aussie forum however I can't not mention AUT - Auckland University of Technology, A great program. You would be then qualified in Aus also due the the Trans Tasman agreement. You should check directly with them for details.
