I started on a Student visa then moved onto a graduate visa after graduating from an Advanced Diploma of Leadership and Early Childhood Education and Care.
What did you do before coming to Australia?
I was in my home country Malaysia taking a gap year whilst I decided what I wanted to study.
What are your plans for the future?
I plan to live in Australia and continue working in Childcare or I might continue my studies and undertake a Bachelor in Education.
Why did you choose Australia?
- Because Australia is close to home. (Malaysia)
- Because Childcare was in demand and I really like children.
How did Pathway to Aus help you?
Nick and Brad helped me through the visa process and they also helped me in finding Imagine Education which was a great school. Nick and Brad were also very helpful with helping me obtain the graduate visa.
Tell me about how you started with Pathway to Aus?
I heard about Pathway to Aus when Nick & Brad came to Malaysia for a seminar and I was impressed by what they had to offer.
