Hi there, we are hoping someone can advise us, our son is 17, will be 18 in March, we are hoping to be in Adelaide by the end of the year on a PR Visa. Can anyone tell me do you have to pay for college out there, ie TAFE?? If we do its not a problem but what is worrying us is that he didnt get great GCSE results, the only good one was in PE so am hoping he can enrol for a Sports based course but does anyone know how difficult it is to get onto a course with regards to exam results from the UK?? and more to the point that they were very poor!! So would he be accepted?? Also what sort of things to older kids this age do at the weekends, evenings etc?? He wont discuss coming with us but we are not leaving him behind and hoping he will find something he likes doing, meet some new friends and have a better life than what he would have here.
At the moment he is only interested in playing sports, x box, mates, going out!!!
We need to sell it to him a bit, so any insight from any boys this age or parents with kids this age would be great.
Rain and Neil
