Travel, Work, Study in Australia
Zia Kalong | Mar 28, 2019
For a lot of Filipinos, America has long been the ultimate destination whether for travel, work, internship, training, or study. (Check out all these people we’ve already sent to the U.S.!) But if there’s something the vast world wide web has taught us, it would be the fact that there are so many things and places to discover and explore. Thanks to all those travel articles, blogs, vlogs, and Instagram snapshots that flood the internet, more and more people are discovering the wonders of the Land Down Under. Australia is famous around the world for its unparalleled natural, cultural, and architectural beauty, with nineteen (19) UNESCO World Heritage sites under its belt! But ‘Straya’ is more than just a pretty country, its economic history is also quite impressive. In fact, Australia hasn’t had a recession in 27 years!
Need For Nurses
Inside Australia’s mixed-market economy, the healthcare sector is one of the largest and fastest growing industries. This means that more workers are needed to meet the growing demand for healthcare services. In fact, the number of opportunities in healthcare occupations has increased in recent years. “Nurses play a pivotal role in any well-functioning healthcare system.” Australia has a huge demand for nurses across all specialties but is particularly high for aged care. Fortunately, Australia has one of the highest pay rates for nurses in the world.
The Study, Work and Travel Program
On the other hand, our hardworking and ever diligent nurses are, sadly, some of the most underpaid workers in the Philippines. By connecting these dots, meeting an international demand with local supply, we at Vision International Philippines offer a simple symbiotic solution: the Australian Study, Work and Travel Program. This program is offered to Filipino medical professionals and fresh graduates from any medical course, with or without experience. With the Student Visa (subclass 500), participants are given the opportunity to live in Australia for full-time study at an educational institution while being able to work for up to 40 hours a week in a field related to their course of study. Program participants get to earn AUD 20.55 per hour at work and a double degree at school, plus, they get to travel in and out of Australia for the entire duration of their program, which means they can home during school breaks.
It’s no surprise why many people from around the world prefer to work and live in Australia. With scenic landscapes, vibrant culture and society, a resilient economy, and laid-back lifestyle, Australia is fast becoming our generation’s ultimate land of opportunity.
