Immigration department are making money by calling us here, without proper survey they are calling more and more people, the fact is only 38% of people are doing the job that they want. Other are doing odd jobs or are waiting for next opp.

They do not do proper survey at all, all software engg. falls under same category, but job market is for only few selected technology, that to its luck with uncertainty in future, least permanent jobs. If you are well in India then dont risk coming here.

Infact there are less chances of earning then spending.

Take it seriously, risk is yours !!

Yes cost of living is high but wages should cover it, Australia is the land of opportunity and you will never go hungry, think big.

Hi everyone, I am new to this forum and this is my first post here.

I am planning to migrate to Australia, have just started with the process. Long way to go, I know. However, before embarking further I just wanted to understand the comparison between wages & the cost of living in Sydney and London for a ICT BA.

This will give me some sort of direction on further planning and the reason I ask for comparison with London is because I have stayed there for a couple of years.

Looking forward to hear from some expats to Australia from UK.

Many thanks

Hi,

I''m from Singapore and intend to move to Melbourne.
I would lie to know how much is the children education?

I was informed by my cousin who is currently living there that we need to prepare $2k annually for each child for them to enter a government and/or private school. how true is this?

Please advice.

Thank you.

Yes, that's very true for private schooling. In fact, 2k might not be enough and prepare to pay more in secondary school. Unless you send your kids to public school which is free where school fee payment is optional as it's fully funded by the govt.
School syllabus is a lot lower than Singapore. I would say 2 to 3 years behind for primary school. Hence, I am sure you kids would love it as it's a lot less homework, stressful and competitive. However, it may get tougher in secondary school to align with Uni entrance standard at a later stage.

Theoretically, public schools are free of charge, but there will be some expenses, like uniform, some excursions, dancing, swimming, foreign languages.

I was lucky enough to get a single room @ 80 AUD per week, It was in Coffs Harbour back in 2009. Room size is about 12 ft by 14 ft but with shared bathroom and common kitchen. I wonder if such rate can be available in any suburb of Sydney, like Lakemba or Bankstown.

I doubt that you would get a rate like this for a room anywhere in the Sydney region.

However, if you are willing to share a room, you could get around this rate.
