    Get Ready for Day One Down Under with OET

    Get Ready for Day One Down Under with OET

    ⭐ Scroll down for FREE test prep resources! ⭐
    So you want to move to the land down under, but there are a million English test options, and you don’t know which one to choose…
    Well, if you’re a healthcare professional, taking the OET is likely to give you an edge on your Australian visa application AND your job.

    It’s a key distinction: The OET assesses your English skills in real-life healthcare scenarios. 

    Where normal academic English tests can ask you to speak on a number of topics (from fashion to politics to any other random subject), the OET focuses on your specific field. It ensures that you’re prepared to live in Australia AND also be able to work effectively at your job from day 1. 

    Tom Keenan, Regional Director in APAC from OET is on the episode with me to share many more benefits (like its international transferability) and what more you can expect from the test.

    Key Topics:
    - What is OET?
    - Where is OET accepted?
    - Proficiency levels based on professions
    - Who is OET right for?
    - Types of occupations OET is designed for
    - Preparing for the OET test
    - How to take the OET test?
    And more!

    How Registered Nurse Deo Got Her Permanent Residency in AUS

    How Registered Nurse Deo Got Her Permanent Residency in AUS

    Don’t make the same mistakes Deo made.

    I was so excited to chat with Nurse Deo today because she recently became a permanent resident after navigating the process from overseas, and she’s here to share her process with us.

    Deo walked me through all the steps, from getting her qualifications assessed to obtaining registration in New Zealand first before transferring to Australia. 

    She also opened up about relying too heavily on her agent without getting proper legal advice, which is something I always recommend against. 

    For anyone thinking about the big move down under, Deo's top tip is to seek guidance from a migration professional - it can save you so much potential hassle later on. 

    Be sure to listen in for all of her valuable insights gained from her own experience. And don't forget, if you need help creating a tailored plan for yourself, you can book a consultation with me and my team.

    Wishing you smooth sailing as you work towards your dreams of living in Australia!

    Key Topics:
    - Nursing Qualifications
    - Steps to become a registered nurse in AUS
    - Leveraging New Zealand - AUS relationship for registration
    - Getting your qualification recognized
    - Finding an employer
    - Insights for nurses
    And more!
