Your task is to become ONE of the following people and apply for permission to migrate to Australia.
You will be allocated the person by your teacher.
You are to prepare a submission to the Australian Government using the appropriate form which can be accessed through this Department of Immigration website, stating how you meet the requirements for migration | asylum | refugee status.
You are to write an accompanying letter stating
- why you should be accepted by Australia given the changes (learn about them here) which have occurred to Australia's migration policies since the introduction of Multiculturalism with a timeline here and more background information here to help you along the way
You may make the assumption that for the purposes of this exercise you can read and write English sufficiently well to complete the tasks. After all, as Australians speak English might that not be a point in your favour? But, then again, multiculturalism is the go in Australia so does knowing English matter?
