What this visa lets you do
This is a permanent residence visa. It lets you and any family members who have also been granted this visa to:
- stay in Australia indefinitely
- work and study in Australia
- enrol in Medicare, Australia's scheme for health-related care and expenses
- apply for Australian citizenship (if you are eligible)
- sponsor eligible relatives for permanent residence
- travel to and from Australia for five years from the date the visa is granted (after that time, you will need a resident return visa or another visa to return to Australia).
Am I eligible to a masters degree in Oz with a 189 Visa
PR holders are classified as local students and have lower rates applicable. Of course they cant avail the loan facility (commonwealth support facility).
I will admit that I am not 100% sure as had heard from someone... probably someone from AU can better clarify.
Right...infact there are more schlorships for international students than local students as universities are more interested in wooing foreign students. This is unfortunate but true.They are local students but while this makes a huge difference in fees for an undergrad degree, the fee difference for postgraduate is marginal. You are looking at 2.5-3k per subject upfront. With four subjects per semester that's over 10-12k upfront per 6 months...compared to 14-15k for international students
