No problem
Yep, you're right, and in fact I was sure that we'd be asked for an assurance of support:
1. I'm studying full-time at uni (have HECS debt like you)
2. I'm on Youth Allowance
3. I was working part-time but I quit in May (we applied for the visa in July)
4. My partner doesn't work, and has not worked since he got here - he's been studying English the whole time
5. We're both young and living with my mum

I don't think going post-grad will make them ask for an AoS, go for it I think they take into account a lot of things (eg: if you have family supporting you, how you're living [rent/mortgage], if you have/will be working part-time, if your partner will find a job, ect), but it seems that they hardly ever ask for an AoS (in fact I can't remember anyone on the forum needing one)

I just found this: Dependants of people who hold Temporary Business (long stay) visas (subclass 457) are exempt from paying international student tuition fees. Local school fees still apply. - It isn't applicable to me but seems strange how long stay visas are exempt from charges whilst those wishing to stay have to pay!! Just to clarify, my intention is to work when I am married, it is my child that will be in education

I think for the business visa, it's about the family having to relocate because of the parent, so they can pay local fees. But I get what you mean, I think even if you would be subjected to international-fees, a depedent child shouldn't.

Would it be primary school or high school? I think you should probably contact immigration/the embassy to clarify because we all seem a but confused

It would be high school - she is year 9 here (14 in Nov), so I imagine same as Australia...
I totally agree, I would expect to pay for education for myself, as I would do here.. but for a child who is applying for PR, it doesn't seem a good policy.
Yes, I need to contact someone in immigration but how? Does anyone have any ideas?

I agree 100%.

They have an email service:
Australian Immigration Email Enquiry Form for the U.K. & Ireland
Though I don't know how quick you'll get a response, surely not more than 10 days.

Here's the address of the UK office:
United Kingdom - Contacts

And their telephone number:
+44 20 7856 1563
