Hello,
Is anyone been or going to Australia?

It may take a few days before someone answers your question.
When they say they have been, what questions do you want to ask?

I live in Melbourne. Lots of people here have been to Australia.

As Andrew says, what would you like to know?

Hi Both,
I am planning to study at Kaplan Business School, and was wondering if anyone had gone out on a study visa. My plan is to study and work out there for two years. Do you know where I could look at accommodation? Which area is cheapest near the school and has a good reputation?
Also, is it worth me applying for jobs before I leave the U.K., once my visa application has been approved?
Any help would be appreciated.

Is there only one Kaplan Business school?
And if there is, where in Australia is it?

There's are 4 campuses:
Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. I believe I will be at Brisbane, but yet to be confirmed. Is it not well known then?

I've never heard of it but I'm not in Australia....

Shared long term accommodation will by far be the most affordable option for you. Flatmates is a good place to start looking for a place to stay.

Finding work from outside Australia is always much more difficult. I’d start looking at what kinds of options might work for you and then apply when you get to Australia. Easiest options are usually work in retail or hospitality especially if you have skills in those areas already.

if you want to do hospitality you’ll have to get an RSA so you can serve alcohol, not sure if Queensland makes you go in physically to do the course or online but that’s worth getting!!
