    The second dose is not considered a “booster” shot, as it does not increase immunity in a person who has already been vaccinated. Rather, the second dose is intended to produce immunity in the small percentage of individuals who did not respond to the first dose.

    Hi chelseaxyrene,

    I filed my application at AHPRA WA on my own. When I got my letter of eligibility, I went to IDP to request assistance in finding a school. I went to their office personally and they scheduled me for an appointment with one of the counselors. In order for them to talk to you, I think you need to be scheduled first - they don't appear to accept walk ins. Also, they need you to come in to their office so I don't think that an online application will suffice. They do everything for you for free - find a school, process your visa, help you look for accommodations and best-priced airline tickets. However, around the time I consulted IDP, the Habagat rains hit Manila. I had to reschedule my appointment several times. I realized that I didn't want to wait for IDP to help me with my application anymore. I went ahead and called La Trobe on my own and several other schools as well (including IHNA). I asked how to apply and sent several application forms to to schools. I got accepted by IHNA first and I reserved my slot by paying the 1500 AUD enrollment fee. A month later, La Trobe sent me an offer letter for the June intake and I accepted. My reasons for deserting my IHNA reservation: 1) My slot was in Perth and I didn't know anyone in Perth, 2) I was worried about their accreditation status 3) It took awhile for them to acknowledge receipt of my enrollment fee payment and I got worried. During this time, I made a lot of calls to IHNA and only an answering machine picked up on more than half my calls (I found this disconcerting). I think the payment of the enrollment fee was easier for other people and maybe the school just had so many applications at the time that they did not have time to pick up the phone. Anyway, I found that La Trobe responded quicker, was more thorough, and on the whole, seemed more professional. So I went with La Trobe. IDP does not help with applications to IHNA but they do help with applications to La Trobe and Deakin and UniSA (I think) as long as they are your agent. When I applied to La Trobe on my own, I indicated that I preferred that IDP be my education agent and they honored that. I called IDP and explained that I went ahead and applied on my own but that I indicated in my application that they were my agent, and now I am scheduled for an appointment with them to help me with my visa application.

    I apologize my reply to your post is long-winded but I hope it answered your question to your satisfaction.
    How long did you wait for low from WA?

    Hi guys! I'm thinking of applying for registration in Australia on my own. I've taken and passed my IELTS already. I'm betting on La Trobe Uni. Does anybody know cheap "bed space" near their melbourne campus? I heard that the cost of living in AU is quite high. :P BTW, does anyone have the same pursuit as mine (going to Australia alone)? I'm quite anxious and still undecided if I should ask assistance from an agency or just do everything on my own. Any advice? Thanks!!!

    yes, it is clearly stated that you have to take the vaccine and the titer also as proof of immunity.
