With the beginning of this year thought to share some knowledgeable article this time. So this time article is all about the new students who are planning/ packing their backpacks for Australia with lots of excitement, consciousness, happiness, dream and also some doubts and queries. In this blog I will try to answer those queries which run in most of the heads.
Just a quick intro of mine. I am thathappysoul running this blog covering whateva comes in my mind. I belong from Butwal, Nepal. Now I am in Australia with my partner and it’s been more than six months so having a little bit of beginner’s experience I am sharing as much as I can so that it would help the toddlers who are going to be here Here am discussing the general things only..
Let’s begin with the weather first. Oh!! Wait. I am living in Brisbane something things might be slightly different in other cities from here. So here we are having sunny days. Yes its summer from December to around March and then vice versa. Totally opposite with the northern hemisphere. Sadly there are snowfall in winters but we are blessed with beautiful beaches . Australia is known for its multi-cultural environment and that’s true and amazing as well. I love that here you don’t only get to know a new person but a new country/culture which keeps you always in learning mode.
There are various intake sessions throughout the year depending on the courses you applied. Every college has orientation prior to their first class which is really helpful try not to skip that. Your faculty will be introduced along with your course pattern, schedules, event you’re having in your college. Apart from studies they will discuss the types of jobs, essential things you need to apply asap you reach here, rules and policies you need to keep in your mind while you’re in this beautiful place.
There are some few important papers you would need to carry few days along with some photocopy of the follows:
Passport, CEO, Passport size photograph, small diary, pen and a laptop.
You will need these things in your college enrollment as well as for opening bank accounts, purchasing sim.
Things you need to when you come here
Some applications that would help you
Many of you must have your friends or relatives already here they can help you in finding apartments for you. You can take apartment in rent or can also live in sharing as owning whole apartments need some conditions to be fulfilled which in starting might be difficult for you. Meet new people make new friends, talk to them as networking will help you every manner also in finding jobs. Also remember don’t tell anyone your personal details like your full name, passport number, date of birth it can be misused. Be careful! As you will be here don’t be shy to try or doing things by yourself. Learn . try. Don’t be shy. For instance filling your details in forms all must be done by you only. Remember learning is part of life which must go on..
Sometimes we need small items.. no wories you have plenty of shopping centers where you will get things at reasonable prices like
Coles for your daily items/foods/veggies/non-veg.
Kmart, Target, Wooloowort, Big W for utensils/kitchen items/ household items pillows/ clothes
Officework for stationery items
Asians you also no need to worry about the spices you missed here are many Indian/Nepali shops where I bet you will get whatever you’re looking for.
There are many events held everyday,week,month so be connected to our very own social networking sites be part of public groups which will help you a lot.
Last not the least some more tips
Once you reach here talk to your consultant at least once. Thank them.
Don’t forget to talk to your parents. This might sound silly but that’s true many of us don’t make calls often which is not good.
TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF. ENJOY!!
Any queries still you have can just drop a mail. I would love to help
Stay Safe. ALL THE BEST.
