International Students Studying In Australia

Marsha Said:

Studying in Australia for international students?

We Answered:

When I was studying on campus ( now am off campus distance student), I had lots of friends who were from 'spore and Hong Kong. So, yes, there are lots of students from Singapore studying at universities all over Australia and many of those even have grandparents and parents who studied in Australia.

The cost can be quite high. You would be looking at $16,000 to $20,000 AUD per year for fees alone. Then you would need at least $10,000 AUD a year for living costs ( including books, accommodation, food and travel - if you need to travel to uni).

You will be permitted to work up to 20 hours per week during semester, and 40 hours during holidays. That will assist a little if you are strapped for money.

Hope this helps.

How can the international student studying in Australia travel to U.S.A.?

We Answered:

The answer really depends on what country you are a citizen of. If it is one of the 35 countries participating in the "Visa Waiver Compact" you would simply need a passport and apply for a Visa Waiver on line at "www.cbp.gov".

If your home country is not a Visa Waiver member you would have to apply for a tourist visa at the U.S.Embassy, and have an interview with a consular. There is a U.S. Embassy in Perth.

It usually takes about 30-60 days to get a tourist visa, and the visitor visa is valid for 90 days. One of the main things the interviewer will try to determine is are you likely to over stay your visa. Something that shows that you have ties to Perth, and need to return, like future university enrollment, would satisfy that question.

For more detailed information check out the State Department's website at "www.usenbassy.gov".

Question for australians:How much can i earn per hour as an international student studying in australia?

We Answered:

You can only work for 20 hours a week on a student visa. Most jobs pay from about $15-$20 per hour. This includes being a waiter, working as a check out sales person etc. Areas that have many tourist looking for work are likely to pay less - so keep this in mind. I would suggest that you have some savings, as you are unlikely to earn enough to fully support yourself whilst in Australia.

Chris Said:

I am an international student studying in Australia, and I want to play shares. Is it possible?

We Answered:

I know it's not exactly what you wanted, but it may be a good way to see how well you would have done if you had really invested:
ASX provides school students the opportunity to hypothetically invest $50,000 into the stock exchange, and track its progress over several months. It allows students to buy and sell normally using rates from the current share prices. The last sharemarket game ended on 18th June 2007, and the 2007 game started on September 14.

Give it a go, you've got nothing to loose!
