Have I any chance? =)

Hi everybody!
I would like to ask about the opportunities in Australia and possibility to study there and find any job.

Now I'm studying languages- going to be translator. I have 2 more years to study for Bachelor degree. but my dream is to get Master degree in Australia and stay there for live.
So my questions are- how real is it for foreign students (Baltic states) to enter your university and does really this profession (technical translator) is popular (in demand). If so, which languages are the most widespread here at this moment.

I would be greatly thankful for each your advice!

Best wishes,

Welcome to the forum Helena and opportunity for study leading to migration is a possibility but it would have its expense and there's always employment uncertainty as a possible sting in the tail, that being so even for Australians and likely I suspect not just an Australian phenomena.

Australia is fortunate though in having had reasonably low employment in general terms for a couple of decades though that is changing with the global economic situation - and who really knows where that'll end!

But to the process and first you would need to establish what an appropriate course or masters work would be and you need to go to Department of Immigration & Citizenship and a click on Visas, I &R heading will reveal subheadings with Students being one and a click there will list you options and under each you'll find sections about eligibility and "applying for the visa" , and there's a link to the government site, CRICOS [from memory] that lists approved courses and so then you can shop about the different universities that have an appropriate course.

There's a chart also on what applicants could expect to be looking at in respect to costs in Australia.
I've never looked at a student visa application to see in an application form what sort of funds evidence documentation is required but given a situation that occurred here in Australia just recently with Indian students [we get many] and claims of financial stress amongst other things I sometimes wonder whether quite a bit of fudging of evidence goes on or it is not checked too thoroughly.

I know for instance for Working Holiday Visas where $5000 is to be available that merely having a credit card account with at least that ammount credit balance would suffice alone and it seems that checks are rarely made for incoming WHV holders.
If Estonian [on the list for WHV] by any chance, maybe something you might also want to consider as an interim move.

Then there's the course fees themselves and the following site gives an idea of government subsidies to Australian students for various courses and can be taken as some sort of an itial guide but it'll be more for that is just the difference between what an Australian and a student from abroad would pay and Australians do not get free University education.
Being eligible and Student Learning Entitlement

You'll find that getting a student visa requires an approved course and also an offer of placement for the course and then there's conditions like needing to stay in the course to keep the visa valid.
You're allowed to work for 20 hrs./week during semester and no limit between while on a student visa and so there's possibility of earning while here.

If you have studied for two years you may be eligible for either an 885/886 visa and have a look under Workers > Skilled and Other Professionals for that.

As to work in technical translating field, we've always had a massive ammount of our heavy machinery in power generation come from Germany in past but translations/translators for that are probably very well established with limited new opportunities I'd guess and in looking to the future, it seems that China is going to be the new industrial power and already Australia's largest trading partner, so perhaps is it Mandarin? that they use most - our Administrator Mike may chime in for he has spent quite a bit of time there in recent years.
