Default Paying for State Education

Hi

I have heard that if you do not have citizenship you have to pay for your child's education from primary level upwards.

Is this true?

And if it is is it true for Victoria?

Hi... I have been looking into this myself recently... check out www.internationalschool.edu.au .... I am not sure what would happen in Victoria but it would be a good starting point.

Depends on the visa you hold, on a 457 for example you have to pay for State education in some States.
However,as a general rule, no its not true, there is no citizenshio requirement for free (or what passes for for "free") State education.
