Re: How to send a text message from Oz mobile to UK mobile

As long as the UK mobile number is prefixed by +44 and excluding the initial 0 (so something like +44776543210 for 0776 543210) it will work fine - on most mobiles when inserting the number you hold...

Re: IELTS Results question

Unfortunately you need 8.0 or above in all categories so your 7 in writing will mean you don't reach the threshold for 'Superior' English instead you will be classed as having 'Proficient' English.

Re: Childs routine jabs and routine adult health checks

Australian medical care is like UK medical care - very, very good in places and not quite as good in others. Depends where you live, but overall, mostly excellent. It's a bit different to have to pay...

Hi,
I live in the inner West (Sherwood) and think it's a great spot. Why are you looking at the south west? Where will you likely be working? The commute (by car) from Springfield/Forest Lake is a...

Re: Youth worker post

Hi Colin,

Honestly, we pay our Interns just less than that and they are definitely not living large. It's about $1710 take home per fortnight which in my opinion (for what it's worth) is going to...

Re: Regional/2nd WHV work in Brisbane?

Ah, I see. Now it makes more sense - didn't read the bit about 'designated work'. Maybe there are farms/smallholdings in those areas that use WHV holders to do some work.

Hopefully the OP can find...

Re: Regional/2nd WHV work in Brisbane?

I had a look just out of interest (because I'm curious!) and I'm surprised that 4124 and 4125 are included!

Re: Paying back a uk student loan whilst living in Australia

You can either transfer money via a company (like Tranzfers, which is what I did) or you can actually pay on the SLC website via debit or credit card (VISA or Mastercard).

Good luck.

Re: Help! May be moving to Brisbane

It's not up to $500 per week, it's $500 to $600, and I think that is a good budget for a modest house in a nice suburb. It certainly is in parts of the suburbs mentioned and in many others.
