Work Life in Australia

AustraliaWork Life in Australia!

 

 

Hey there, hope you are staying home and taking precautionary measures for Covid-19.

In our previous articles, we have learnt about Lifestyle in Australia, Student Life in Australia. Now let’s know more about work life in Australia.

Unlike in some other English-speaking countries, there is no automatic right associated with your student visa to stay and work for a period of time in Australia after you complete your degree. When you receive your student visa, the government lets you in on a temporary basis of entry for study with the understanding that you will leave upon completion of course and before the visa will expire. Australia continues to have demand for foreign workers and students that have earned a degree in Australia have a special work visa category.

485 Skilled Graduate Temporary Visa

This visa is the most common option available for international students after graduating. With a 485 visa, you are allowed to stay in Australia for 18 months to gain work experience only if you have just completed at least two years of study in Australia. So, you can make use of it and get a job.

There are ten National Employment Standards that employers must adhere to and these represent the minimum standard of what you should expect in the workplace in Australia.

  • Maximum weekly hours (38 ordinary hours in a week) and governance over how many hours can be worked in any one day.
  • Flexible working – for example, if someone is a carer, has young children, or if they are experiencing challenges at home.
  • Parental, maternity, and adoption leave.
  • Annual leave – a minimum of 4 weeks, adjusted pro-rata for those who work part time.
  • Carer’s and compassionate leave.
  • Community service leave, although, with the exception of jury service, this is unpaid.
  • Long service leave – rules for this are governed by the local state or territory.
  • Public holidays – again, these vary depending on which state or territory you settle in
  • Rules for termination of employment, notice, and redundancy pay.
  • Fair work information statement — a document that must be given to a new employee outlining their rights under law and how to make a complaint if they don’t think they have been treated properly.

Why should you work and live in Australia? Here are some reasons you should know:

  • It is well-known that Australia has an active economy that has been strengthened over the last decades. International commerce is orientated to the fabrication of high-value products and services.
  • Australia is considered one of the safest countries on the planet. It has low levels of crime and efficient police forces.
  • Migrants working and living in Australia are entitled to some pension benefits. If you want to get these benefits you must meet the age and residency requirements.
  • The visa approval process of the qualified migration program takes, on average, 18 months, which is considered fast compared to other countries.

Australia is a popular destination for jobseekers who want to migrate to another country. The country has favorable features that make it a desirable destination for individuals to make a career.

Student Life in Australia

Student Life in Australia

 

Hi There,

Hope you are doing good.

In our last post, we got to know about the general lifestyle in Australia. Let us know about how welcoming Australia is for International students.

Student Life in Australia

Australia has fascinated students for a long list of reasons but the topmost is the lifestyle it promises. With colleges ranking amongst the Top 100 of the world, the Universities of Australia have seen a definitive increase in their international student numbers in recent years.

While this attracts many international student, let us know about other factors involved to make your decision.

Cost of Study

The island country Australia is attracting more and more international students from all around the globe. Some of the top universities and colleges in the world are located in Australia and thus, Australia is becoming the new favorite among students. But how much does education in Australia costs? The tuition fee differs from university to university as well as the type of program and course you opt for.

Education Level Cost/Year
Undergraduate Bachelor Degree AUD 20,000 – 45,000

Cost of Living

Australia ranks amongst the top 10 in the Human Development Index as well as the Quality of Life Index. In simple words, a developed nation, Australia is amongst the top countries of the world in terms of its education system, the GDP and purchasing power parity indexes. With a high level of incomes, it also enjoys a high level of health awareness, an excellent medical system as well as a politically stable economy.

But as a student, these are hardly the indices you would wish to worry about. What matters is how much it would cost to stay in Australia. So, here’s the above jargon simplified to numbers per month

 

Type of Boarding Cost of Boarding
Hostels and Guesthouses AUD 90 – 150 per week
Shared Rental AUD 95 – 215 per week
On-campus AUD 110 – 280 per week

Other living costs

While accommodations costs form the large share of expenditures under living expenses, other costs under the cost of living in Australia include:

Components Costs
Groceries and eating out AUD 140 – 280 per week
Gas, electricity AUD 10 – 20 per week
Phone and Internet AUD 15 – 30 per week
Public transport AUD 30 – 60 per week

Working while studying

Australian Immigration Laws are comparatively easy when it comes to working while studying. Though the rules might vary, generally students are allowed to work for up to 40 weeks in a year.

Companies, local businesses, and retail shops often hire students (both domestic and international). As an international student, you are protected by the same labour laws as the domestic student populace which also means the minimum wages. As a student, you can expect around $17 per hour (rough estimates).

The kinds of jobs are also varied. There are both on-campus jobs as well as local jobs available and often universities have an office which would help you find the right one for you.

Once you graduate, you stay in Australia for 18 months to four years, depending on your qualification. In order to stay, you will need a Graduate Temporary Skilled Visa (subclass 485).

Waitangi Day – 2021

Waitangi Day 2021

Happy Waitangi Day to all New Zealanders!

 

 

Waitangi Day is New Zealand’s national day. It is a holiday held annually on February 6th to commemorate the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi – New Zealand’s founding document – on February 6th 1840.

The Treaty made New Zealand a part of the British Empire, guaranteed Māori rights to their land and gave Māori the rights of British citizens.

The treaty was signed in Waitangi, a town in the Bay of Islands, by a group of Maori chiefs and the British Government, as represented by Lieutenant-Governor Hobson.

The day was first officially commemorated in 1934 and in 1957, Waitangi Day was proposed as a public holiday by the New Zealand Labour Party in their party manifesto. After Labour won the election they were reluctant to create a new public holiday. Instead, the Waitangi Day Act was passed in 1960 which made it possible for a local region to substitute Waitangi Day as an alternative to an existing public holiday.

The Treaty governs the relationship between Māori – the tangata whenua (indigenous people) – and everyone else, and ensures the rights of both Māori and Pakeha (non-Māori) are protected. It does that by:

  • Accepting that Māori iwi (tribes) have the right to organize themselves, protect their way of life and to control the resources they own
  • Requiring the Government to act reasonably and in good faith towards Māori
  • Making the Government responsible for helping to address grievances
  • Establishing equality and the principle that all New Zealanders are equal under the law.

The Māori language – Te Reo – is now an official language alongside English and New Zealand Sign Language. Increasingly, the names of places and organisations (particularly government departments) are written in both English and Māori. You will hear Te Reo all around you, including on television and radio and in the workplace.

Waitangi Day 2021

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern helps cook breakfast on the national holiday, which celebrates the signing of the treaty of Waitangi on 6 February 1840 by Māori chiefs and the British Crown.

This years Dawn Service was a little different from previous years, due to concerns around Covid-19. Around 2500 people joined the service which was held outside the Whare Runanga on the marae atea at the Waitangi Treaty Grounds. There were a lower than expected number of attendees at the dawn service this year, but it was filled with karakia, korero, and katakata. So what is the significance of the timing of such as service – why is it held at dawn? We spoke to the Bishop of Te Taitokerau, the Right Reverand Te Kitohi Pikaahu.
