Hi, For those studying or who have studied in Australia (or New Zealand), mind if I ask a few q's? 1) about how much would airfare be from Australia (say melbourne) to the US? 2) how much is airfare from AUS to England/Ireland/South Africa? 3) about how much does rent go for? (again, Melbourne, or whatever else you might think would help for a comparison) 4) how much for utilities, food, phone (mobile or landline?) Hehe, if you haven't guessed, I'm trying to compare financial advantages/disadvantages to going to Australia 5) How easy is it to work part-time as a medical student? And, is it easy for foreigners to find work? Thanks so much! I'm sure I'll have more q's, but this is it for now. Following in your footsteps .
