I believe my only option is to apply for myself on a student visa and try to work everything out so that i travel with my family when they leave for OZ. They wont leave without me! I intend to live with my family whilst doing the course and then apply for residence in my own rite etc - if that all makes sense.

Does anyone know of any hairdressing training centres/colleges etc in Perth -(huge huge places i know), that accept international students.

How much it costs?
How long the training must be for to satisfy immigration etc?
What are the academic entry requirements to enrol on a course?

If anyone has been through this situation or can help, or direct me to someone who can, please please please do.

I cant' see why you can't be added to their visa becaise you are 18.
Provided you are under 23 and you can prove you are dependent of your parents, this should not be a problem.

My daughter is 21 and is coming on our permanent residency visa that we have applied for as she is a full time student nurse and is fiancially dependant on me and her dad, if u want to go on your parents permanent visa u have to prove the same. if u go on an international student visa then you will have to pay for all of your tuition, books etc i found this out as i needed to know as my daughter is a student. the colleges in and around perth are -( if you put into google ) tafewa - it will come up with swan tafe and challenger tafe these are the 2 biggest techs , there is also a private one called taylor weir school of hairdressing. I hope this is of some help to you.

Hello Ann

I guess we are about the same age as i will turn 45 soon and i am also expected to get my visa sometime in April/may or earlier or later depending on our C.O.
My daughter is age 20 and she is on our application.
Have you been able to find out if it is easy/difficult to get jobs or would you stick to teaching hairdressing - beauty therapy.

I am 39yrs of age, had my daughter early! was at an immigration seminar in Edinburgh and i spoke with someone who works for the Australian government, he told me about the techs etc and that they are in need of teachers in my trade. so i am not sure if i will get a job doing this or not but its what i still want to do, it's what i am comfortable with. If i have to change my profession then i will, but at the moment i don't see a problem. Maybe as time gets closer to us moving, then i might start to worry about not having a job lined up.

Hi Ann
That's correct - You still have some time to explore all possibilities and i'm sure you will be able to do somethng that you are really comfortable with.
