We're currently in the process of researching the possibility of a move down under to either Melborne or Adelaide.
Trying to get some idea of the educational facilities within these 2 areas for ages 11 & 13 currently, (more like 13 & 15 if & when we make it out there !)
We read one article that appeared to indicate that if the kids are not native Australians then the education was chargeable, but this has been denied by somebody we know who has just come back from Oz
Can somebody clarify either way please, as to go from an excellent UK to state school to a fee paying state school in Oz is a serous financial commitment to be factored in.
If there are any accountants reading this can you give me some idea of the market place in Adelaide / Melborne for a couple of qualifieds (CIMA).i Is the recession biting deep or is the market place buoyant, because personally speaking this is my major concern about emigrating......... you sell up in the UK looking for a new life & end up blowing all your capital surviving because there are no jobs to be found
