I am currently 15 and want to go and study in Australia when I finish my leaving certificate at 18. I want to study physiotherapy on a student visa and then link it into a skilled workers visa. I also plan to apply for Australian citizenship after the 4 years and stay there for my life. I am serious about it even though I'm only 15 and I have already started saving up. I have looked it up and researched myself but find it all a bit confusing.
I have a couple of questions:
How much money at least do I need to have with me?
Do the Australian government regard physiotherapy as a skilled profession so would I get a visa?
Would I have an even chance as Australians to get into the course I want?
Can you get a student visa linked onto a skilled working visa?
Is It hard to get a skilled workers visa?
Is the skilled workers permanent?
Is it hard to get citizenship?
Thanks for your help
Living in Ireland if that helps.
Also like to get ivolved more in sports physiotherapy (one of the reasons I want to go to Australia, all the sports, AFL, Soccer, Cricket, Rugby)
Does anyone know where to get prices for courses?
What about a course like sports science or sports management at universty of Canberra can't get the pries online?
