Question Student Visa

I am Irish, I have used up both of my WHV previously but would really like to go back to Australia. Lately I have been thinking about student visas and all that they entail.
Money wise it wouldnt be a problem but i have a couple of questions:
- Does the course (from CRICOS) have to be something you have had previous experience in or a background in? EG - my background is in accounts so would I have to do something along those lines or could I do something completely different like childcare?

- Once the course is finished, what are the chances of reapplying for another study visa? I presume all of the original criteria would still stand, like having enough money to sustain yourself etc.

- Does anyone know how easy/difficult it is to get a student visa for an Irish person? (I imagine it cant be too easy or else everyone would be doing it?)

- Finally does anyone know if uni's/colleges accept international students often?

Thanks a million for all your help

As long as it is an approved course, you can enrol in whatever you wish to Irishgirl but unless you're seriously considering a different particular career, wouldn't it make sense to consider what may supplement what knowledge/skills/qualifications you have already.
That may give you a greater chance of part-time employment in a field that could more readily bring up an opportunity for employer sponsorship.
You could apply for further student visas if you meet eligibility requirements and we have nothing against the Irish and the main reason people may decide not to apply is going to be the financial situation, colleges and Unis having many international students.
