Going To The UK? Learn The Ins And Outs

Going halfway across the world to England -- the idea is simultaneously intriguing, exciting, and terrifying. No matter how well you plan on your own, you might forget something important.

So join other potential world travellers at The Point To Point Know How evening at The Point to Point Know How evening in Paddington, Brisbane, to learn what's what when heading back to the Mother Country. Whether you're just thinking or have hammered out a complete itinerary, this session offers information you can use. Wondering how to get a visa -- or even what visas for England you might need? You'll learn tips and tricks here from people who've made the trip, filled out the paperwork, and done the research.

If you're planning a permanent (or even semi-permanent) move, you'll find out how to translate your Australian dollars into British pounds so you can compare the scale of salary between Australia and England before you arrive, as well as learning how to research the best places to find a job in your field once you get there. They'll also clue you in to the ins and outs of UK bank accounts so you can get the best and safest places for your money once you're pulling in a paycheck.

How does your flat here compare to the housing in Britain in size and price? Will you get more space for less money, or will you be stuck with a high-priced closet? Ask The Point to Point Know How experts, who have excellent information at their fingertips.

One of the most daunting prospects of traveling to the UK may be dealing with its national health insurance. Relax. At The Point To Point Know How session, your questions and concerns will be covered.

But the session isn't just study, study, study. You'll get to ask questions, exchange a few triumps -- and maybe a few horror stories -- and just have some fun while you meet other people looking forward to the trip of a lifetime. Once you get to the UK, the friends you make here may give you the touch of Australia you might need to get through a Christmas with snow rather than Santa, surf, and sand.

And, saving the best for last: The Point To Point Know How session is free. That's a great deal if you're clutching those dollars until they scream so you can afford your dream trip to the UK.
