My wife and I are flying to Adelaide for a 2-week reccy. We plan to hire a car and move on each day visiting different areas in different towns. We are looking to get a feel for the place, to see if people are friendly, visit a couple of hospitals (from a professional point of view - hopefully not as customers!!), and have a scout around different residential areas.
Can anyone recommend any good (and reasonably-priced) B&B's please? Also driving around, are there areas to avoid going to? Where are the nice areas to live? Which hospitals have the greatest reputation?
How about the weather? What should we expect coming over in May?
Our main worry is the cost of higher education for our 18 year old son. He finishes college this year and would be eligible to study at Uni in UK. Thing is, he will be coming over with us when we finally decide to emigrate, and we're finding it difficult to gain any sort of info relating to courses in Performing Arts. From what we have uncovered, it looks like he would be classed as an overseas student. If that's the case we wouldn't be able to afford the fees that Australian Unis charge. Does anyone know of any courses (specifically at Degree level) offered at a Uni in adelaide which caters for 'budding' actors/singers?
And what opportunities there are for kids his age coming over wanting to study at degree level?
We're hoping to emigrate in Jan 2008 after our daughter's graduaton ceremony. Will be coming over via a recruitment agency. Obviously haven't done anything formal yet. We'll have a better idea when we return to UK after our 2-week stay. If anybody out there can answer our questions it would be greatly appreciated.
