Here's some detail about myself before I start.
-International Student from Canada
-24 years old
-Live in Brisbane at the moment
-Have been in a brisbane uni for 2 years (in dec2010)
-Of course..I'm studying to be a nurse and are in my last year of the BScN program.
-Will have been in Australia for 2 years by the time I graduate (in Dec 2010)
-Have a spouse who is currently here and is studying meds (also canadian)
-I have calculated the PR points that i will have by the time i graduate and it equals 110, and i can get 120..if I get state sponsorship
---Now here are my questions...
I want PR when i graduate so I can settle down here in Oz, but i have no idea..the best and fastest way to get there..
Sponsorship from a potential employer? (If possible, asked around at some public hospitals while on placement, they say that they taking aussies before they employ any internationals) So therefore I dunno the likelyhood of this happening..Any ideas anyone..???
Or do I start applying for PR since my points are over 100. If so, how early can i start applying? pOssibly before i graduate? Or do I have to wait till I get a degree to apply?
Also, I wish to sponsor my husband..who is also looking for PR in order to make his chances greater at someday becoming a doc in oz, and hopefully getting residency here.
Please any help is appreciated...thank you kindly,
