Default Dilemma

I am in abit of a dilemma, me and my family (mother & brother) want to move to Australia but I am not sure what kind of visa I would be looking for as I am 21 and want to do my teacher training at a University there, however the international fees are very expensive. So I am wondering is there anyway I could be on the same visa as my family (is there even a family visa?!). Any advice on what to do would be very helpful!

Cheers

Who would be the main visa applicant and also how old is your mother?

My mother would be the main visa application, she is a nurse and is 50. I have heard that for New Zealand (our second option) I can go on a family visa if I show that I will be in Education!

The general skilled migration programme is only open to people aged under 45.

You need to have a look here and see if there are any other visas that are suitable.

http://www.immi.gov.au/visawizard/

Also for specific info related to nursing look here:

http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/medic...ons-nurses.htm

Definitely look into the 457 visa.

You would need to show though that you and your brother (if he is also over 18) are 'substantially relaint' on your mother for basic needs.

I think in your case you should definitely be speaking to a qualified migration agent to assess your options.

Why not do your university training in the UK , your 21 there is plenty of time to train up get experience and go. Have that brother of yours do something decent while you do that as well.

Nursing is one of those things that will always be in demand.
