Its entirely normal and there are ways to overcome these feelings. These tips will help us overcome homesickness by immersing our self in university life and the Australian Culture.

Attend Orientation week (also called as the ‘O Week’ in Australia)

If you are an international student and You have plans to attend the university in Australia, it is one of the most important steps to attend the orientation program of the university.

Universities in Australia have a full planed program to help us settle in, where we can find out information about our new on campus home, explore the entire campus, meet new people and meet faculty members.
Australian university have a welcome program where we can connect whit ex- students, Faculty
members and make new friends at the university through small and relaxed events. This gives us an assurance to live in a country where there are other people sailing in the same boat as yourself.

Keeping your self busy throughout: ‘GO SIGHTSEEING’

The best way to deal with certain emotions such as home sickness is to keep yourself occupied. You are most likely to feel homesick when you are at home all by your self than when you are busy doing things that you enjoy. One of the best ways to keep your self occupied is to, meet new people, make new friends and engage your self in certain activities that you enjoy, such as cooking your self your favorite meal, reading a book, going outside for a walk or go sightseeing with friends and trying to visit places to take in the Australian culture.
You can start by visiting well-known locations which make Australia famous. Make your self a list of all the places you well want to visit while you are in Australia. this will keep you motivated and you well have less time to miss home.

Communication or keeping in touch with Home: 

Keep in touch with home if you are feeling homesick. One phone call or Skype chat with a loved one well help bridge the distance and can provide you with a great source of comfort. Try and find ways to connect while you are exploring the city rather than staying home. This will help you stay connected as well help you pass time.Just set a reasonable limit on the communication- if you are in constant touch it will make it harder for you to focus on the things happening around you. Facebook, Instagram and Twitter can also be a casual source of communication- it ensures that you are not missing out on anything going on back home. 

Socializing:

Firstly focus on your main goal i,e ‘Studying’ and attending lectures, going to the university regularly. This will keep you pretty much occupied always and well not give you time to over think. During your free time participate in events, join clubs (such as a cooking club or a sports club) which gives you opportunity to meet people with similar interests. Joining an international student society gives you access to a good support network, it helps you meet people who feel the same kind of emotions as you and are likely to be missing home just the way you are. This is one of the good ways to keep yourself occupied during the day. 

Communicating with Higher Authorities

If talking to your family members and friends Isn’t enough then don’t hesitate to ask for professional help from the higher educational authorities. They understand the pressures that we as international students go through and they will guide us to certain support services such as counselling and mentoring programs. they have counselling sessions which help us get through with the initial stage which everyone state is the toughest to cross. the more you come out of your comfort zone the better you will feel about your own self. the mentoring programs help you gain self confidence which in turn help you crack the tough nut.

Can studying in Australia lead to Permanent Residency?

Can-studying-in-Australia-lead-to-Permanent-Residency-2

Introduction

If you are planning on studying in Australia then you must be a genuine temporary entrant (GTE). A genuine temporary entrant is someone who is considered to be entering Australia for a limited period of time with the intention on returning back to their home country.This means that you must not come to australia with the intention to stay permanently.

However, the Department of Home Affairs recognises that people can change their mind after studying here for sometime. The Department of Home Affairs are aware that students who choose to enter Australia to study are likely to make arrangements to extend their stay.

If you are a student and which to make arrangements to extend your stay in australia, get in touch with Equiborder.

Studying in Australia can lead to Permanent Residency and is considered a genuine and legal pathway to settling in Australia. Earning your bachelors or masters degree is only the beginning of settling in Australia. You must obtain work experience for a desirable period of time and strengthen your english skills if required. Obtaining a permanent residency visa in Australia means you will have to apply for a 189 or 190 visa.

Considering the Career Data available

Before making your decision and choosing a course to study in australia so that you can apply for permanent residency, I suggest taking a look at Joboutlook.gov.au so that you can estimate job demand, career stability and income potential.

Consider the career data available before choosing your course to get permanent residency in australia. Search for a occupation on Joboutlook.gov.au

The Job Outlook website is run by the Australian government it provides aggregate data based of australian census, the Australian bureau of statistics and ATO data to provide people with accurate information. Note: make sure your occupation is also on the Australian Skills List otherwise you won’t be eligible to apply for PR.

By searching for your job you will find information on how much you may earn, skills and traits required for that particular job, education and ongoing training required, statistics on age and gender for that particular job as well as demand for that job.

Get the best grades you can to maximise your chances

The better grades you have the more opportunities will be made available to you through your university in the form of scholarships, internships and university placements which are great for your resume. By strengthening your resume and focusing on your grades finding a job related to your profession won’t be as difficult.

Getting better grades demonstrates strong work ethic to employers and having internships, scholarships and university placements on your resume demonstrates to employers that you can be trusted to take on work. If your resume is strong enough you may even receive invitations to apply for graduate programs through the major companies.

Study your curriculum and strengthen your english skills

There is a strong emphasis on knowing everything you can about what you are studying and where that meets your profession. Don’t let that be your main focus, if you are from a country where english is a second, third or fourth language than focus on strengthening your english skills. Strong english skills are important for finding a job and settling in australia and will be the last barrier for you.

Strong english skills will allow you to nail any IELTS test, impress employers and allow your transition from temporary resident to permanent resident that much smoother because you will not have english as a barrier but as a strength. When it comes to applying for permanent residency after finishing your studies and if you have strengthened your english skills you are going to have an easier process and stronger application.

Stay in good health and be of good character

Staying in good health and being of good character is essential to being accepted as a permanent residency after studying in australia and here is why: The Department of Home Affairs considers any kind of criminal conduct when you apply for a visa they will also consider your physical health when you make an application for permanent residency.

Staying healthy and out of trouble whilst you study is just as important as getting good grades whilst you study. If you do not keep in good health and do not stay out of trouble you will not be eligible to apply for permanent residency after you study. By staying in good health and good character you are going to have an easier process and stronger application.

Network your way into an internship or job connected with your profession

Networking your way into a internship whilst you are studying in Australia, so that when you apply for work after you finish your studies you can demonstrate strong work experience. Networking is compulsory if you wish to have any sort of success after your studies in Australia. if you find a job connected with your profession transitioning from a student visa into permanent residency will be so much easier.

By getting work experience before you finish your studies, you will be well positioned to find a job after your degree. When you find a job and have finished your studies you will be able to start attributing points from the points test to your work experience. This is why networking within your profession through an internship or by accessing a scholarship through your university.

How will studying in Australia benefit your future?

The following other posts are relevant to this article:
1. What is studying in Australia Like?
2. How to survive University LIfe

The benefits of studying at an Australian University from the perspective of an International student are: Being educated abroad demonstrates personal accountability, an ability to adapt to unfamiliar situations, it sticks out on your resume, It will allow you to develop a professional-positive attitude which demonstrates resilience and persistence, from interacting with a wide array of people you will develop strong cultural competence skills and have serious bragging rights and have better career opportunities.

1. A degree from an Australian University looks good on your resume

Studying in Australia and earning a degree from a University looks good on your resume for many reasons. Of course, it’s going to be difficult to quantify the return on investment to get a clear idea on the numbers. No one is going to be able to tell you 100% accurately how much much studying in Australia will net you over your 35-45 year career. Not that everyone plans on working that long.

The foundations of your career, the energy and work you put into it, those seeds which you sow early in life are the crops which you will be harvesting at the end of your career. I’d suggest that for anyone to life a life larger than themselves they should invest in themselves and work as hard as possible to ensure that thier education reflects their hard work.

How will studying in Australia benefit your future
How will studying in Australia benefit your future?

Typically, the expense of a degree over a 4-5 year period as an undergrad could be described as the entry level earnings for any Australian. Some people consider earning $45,000 per year for five years to be better value then spending the same amount for undergraduate education. I tend to disagree, not only does a university education provide you with a degree (piece of paper) but it also provides you with a broad set of skills and specialised education. Consider the skills to learn on the job from any profession and then consider the skills and friends you make throughout a university degree, it seems like a no brainer to higher someone with university education and train them because it results in a better rounding of skills and abilities as an employee. And that’s why I believe that studying in Australia and earning a degree from our university offers incredible value.

2. Demonstrates independence and personal accountability

Studying in Australia, living in a foreign country often by yourself and adapting to a completely new mesh of cultures and adapting to them. This amount of independence and personal accountability matures a person and allows them to grow as they learn themselves and how much they are capable of. Most international students are aged 18-24 which means this giant leap of personal responsibility is a big one.

When you return home and apply for jobs you will be able to describe your experience in detail with a strong array of confidence and passion about how you were accountable to yourself and managed your deadlines, managed your health and maintained healthy friendships. One of the biggest feats outside of completing your degree is maintaining your health. If you can do that then you are far ahead of everyone else.

3. Demonstrates an ability to adapt to unfamiliar circumstances

Studying in Australia clearly demonstrates your ability to adapt to unfamiliar circumstances. Building on the point above, adapting to a completely new culture and living alone for the first time is clearly pretty daunting and difficult. Hence why any employer would appreciate those entrepreneurial skills.

Your ability to adapt to unfamiliar circumstances demonstrates an ability to learn and take on work outside of your ordinary skill set. This trait is in high demand amongst employers. By studying in Australia you will have the confidence to master most job interviews when it comes to managing unfamiliar circumstances.

4. Develops resilience and a persistent attitude

Any international student who pursues studying in Australia to obtain a degree will develop resilience and drive, it’s only natural to assume and confirm that. That resilience and drive will go a long way and serve you will throughout the rest of your life. Imagine taking on a project given to you by your boss or client, imagine being able to have the skills to break down that seemingly impossible project into small chunks and do the impossible. What is your value to the business then?

Every business would enjoy having a team member who can rationally work through tasks and manage their deadlines without getting demotivated or distracted. In fact, having someone on the team that knows how to tackle problems and assist other team members with thier tasks is advantageous and productive for the business.

5. You will develop a professional network

As an alumni from your university where you studied to achieve your degree, your network with the people whom you have studied with may come in handy one day. Imagine being tasked with a problem and you personal know and can vouch for a previous classmate who happened to know someone who solves problems in that area. Overnight you could set up a meeting and work through the details to provide you boss with the solution.

The power of a professional network is not to be underestimated, from studying in australia you will meet a lot of people who may be able to help you one day. This means that everyone is your friend and you should be in the position of helping people and making friends in class rather than isolating yourself. Studying in australia is your chance to build your professional network and studying your degree is your chance to make your mark and impress your peers.

6.You will develop cultural competence

Your cultural competence skills will allow you to be the best brand ambassador your boss has ever seen. Studying in Australia will allow you to speak to anyone, relate to anyone as your cultural competence skills have been strengthened from working in groups and participating in class.

Not only will you be able to be a brand ambassador but you ability to speak with anyone will give you the confidence to lead projects and organise your deadlines to ensure that you won’t miss a thing. Being able to work with everyone means that you will not have any issues with communication at all.

7. Serious bragging rights

The amount of bragging rights that an Australian degree will provide you is enough of a reason to study in Australia in the first place. Not only could you show off your degree in your office or cubicle but you could use that knowledge to not only position yourself as a thought leader in your team but take the initiative to plan something bigger within your business.

As a leader in your team with incredible education and influence, you may be responsible for developing training and curriculum for your team. This means that you could, upon joining a team, already start to innovate it. You could be out earning your peers before you know it.

8. Better Career opportunities

The career opportunities which are available upon graduating from studying in australia from a university are endless. Australian education is extremely competitive and will provide you with the skills you need to succeed not just in australia but also overseas. You can demonstrate in job interview, the points above but also highlight your dream of applying your knowledge to the work which you are doing and working in a team by assisting in the training ofr your teammates.

What is studying in Australia Like?

What-is-studying-in-Australia-Like
What-is-studying-in-Australia-Like

First let’s talk about what studying in Australia is not…

Studying in Australia is certainly not about avoiding your studies, not matter how much you wish this was true. In most cases international students have time for friends, work and relationships but no time for thier studies.

Studying in Australia is not about having parties

Many people will say that studying in australia is not about having parties but what do they know? They don’t know the stressed about managing time, keeping a schedule or meeting deadlines or even trying to find a part time job as an international student. No, that wouldn’t know anything about that. There are so many parties offered on campus that you could count at least one every week!When you sign up to the different student societies you will see how often they invite you out for a party. Australia is also home to many concerts, raves and warehouse parties. Be safe!

Studying in Australia is not about having fun…

Everyone says that you don’t take your studies seriously, everyone reminds you that studying is australia is not about having fun. But they have not visited and they don’t understand the temptation of visiting this place. They do not understand the workload that international students go through to relax and have fun. Experiencing what Red Balloon has to offer is always a great idea. You can go race car driving, skydiving, rock climbing and more. They also offer gifting services which you should purchase for that special someone.

Studying in Australia is definitely not about eating non-stop….

Everyone always comments on the size of my stomach, does the same happen to you? Ever since I have started studying i have not been able to stop eating. There is so much to eat here! someone should seriously send help before I explode! Everyone says that studying in Australia is not about the food, well I disagree. I say everyone is about food, everything is linked. Have they not seen the matrix? Australia is a multicultural country and there is so much to eat. Thank goodness, for all of the food because I have never been so bored. Australia is the opposite to the US when it comes to the food. Here it’s quality over quantity.

Studying in Australia is certainly not about playing with the wildlife…

Everyone says that studying in Australia is dangerous and that you have to stay indoors. That’s not true and we all know it. Australia is one of the safest places to swim with crocodiles…… (sarcasm?). Let’s not try to prove them wrong and leave the animal management to the famous irwin family. Getting out there to the Zoo or Sea world, it doesn’t matter but you should at least experience it just once, It will make so much of a difference to your mind set as an adult and give you many memories to think about in the long run.

Studying Australia is not about experiencing adventure…

When your family sent you to Australia how many times did they ask if you are going to travel. I bet you replied to them that you are going to focus on studies and make them proud. I accept that studying in Australia is very tough but you should seriously get outside once in a while. Getting outdoors will make you a well travelled person, especially if you can get to kakadu national park. What a historic place. If you can get all the way out there, I am confident that Australia will provide you with so many photos and bragging rights.

Studying in Australia is not about being inspired

Studying in australia should be inspiring to you, it should make you feel like you have the opportunity and ambition (i believe in you) to do something great with your time here. Pick up another internship, start another blog. I believe that Australia will give you the environment you need to succeed. Being inspired in Australia is a great thing because there are so many avenues and different ways in which you can grow as a person. Life has a way of leading us down many different paths and I know that starting a degree in a different country is tough but I know you can make it!

Okay, so what is studying in Australia about then?

Studying in australia is certainly about having fun and making the most of every opportunity available to you. When you come here to study there is so much to do, see, hear and eat. THere are so many places for you to explore. It is not possible to see the entirety of australia in one lifetime. That is why most people get married, so that they have two life times (joke..). Studying in Australia is more than about getting an education is more than about building your professional network. The resources at your university are there to help you succeed on a personal and professional level. Which means that you should apply for everything that comes into your mailbox.

Studying in Australia is about getting an education

Yes, Studying in Australia is about getting en education, but also about broadening your skillset. What if I told you that every university offers free online classes for almost anything you can think of. That’s right, just go into the library and ask about it. Most universities have institutional subscription to online self-education providers which specialise in e-learning.

Studying in Australia is about making new friends

There are so many social clubs at university. There are so many activities to participate in when you get to university. In fact, almost every university has a “Food Society”, which is a society where everyone can fit in and talk about their mutual interest, or go out and eat it… See, there is so much more about studying in australia than you thought… Food Societies!

Studying in Australia is about building your personal profile

Your personal brand means alot when it comes to graduation. This means that being at university is your chance to grow your personal profile and make a lot of friend who share the same interest and ambitions as you. Which is likely to be the case as you will make probably make friends with people who are in your cohort. This means that every activity you participate in, every program which you join, you should at least try and get a selfie up on linkedin.

Studying in Australia is about whatever you want it to be

Yes, studying in australia is about whatever you want it to be. This is your experience and don’t let anyone tell you have to manage it. It doesn’t matter who is paying for your degree, it’s up to you to decide how you want to manage your time. You have one life to live and you should be as happy as you can be for as as long as you can be. This means that you should balance your short term happiness against your long term happiness and make sure that you surround yourself with good people.
