[quote=“Rabidpie”]Just out of curiosity, how old are you?
I would suggest for you to become a student of Chinese language, and then after a year you can work legally part-time. I’m assuming you have quite a bit of savings for your journey to Taiwan?
I will let other people answer your questions…[/quote]
I’m 24 Rabidpie.
I tried learning Mandarin alongside Law in England. Couldn’t get to grips with the tones at the time.
I’ve not really got an interest in studying Chinese, let alone the funds!
Me and the gf just got back from an amazing trip round NZ and SE Asia so the bank balance isn’t as healthy as it was 3 months ago in Australia. Well worth it though!
We’re going to study in either the UK or the States (she was born there) next year. Just looking for a way to get round these
obstacles and earn a living.
I do have the opportunity to work for a Singapore based company over the phone. If I was paying tax in Singapore, would this be illegal? Damn should have looked into this more…
Nope knock yourself out on the visa run.[/quote]
[quote=“msi”]My first problem is that I dropped out of university in the UK so I don’t have a degree…
From what I gather, a degree is a MUST for legally teaching English and getting an ARC. [/quote]
Correct, a degree would be a minimum for any job here.
[quote=“msi”]However, is their anyway to get a work permit in other industries without having a degree?
For example, I’ve come across some international sales jobs which I feel confident of securing.
If the employer isn’t bothered about a degree, can they still get me a permit?[/quote]
Good luck with that. You have umpteen years and oodles of experience as sales? The employer WILL be challenged why exactly they need to give a job to a foreigner, I’ve seen a fairly strong challenge to someone who wanted a job as a technical writer and he had a degree.
[quote=“msi”]I’m also aware that UK ‘residents’ are offered a 12 month working holiday visa in Taiwan.
Do I need a degree to get one of these? also do I really have to apply in the UK? that’s a long way to go![/quote]
I have never ever heard of that, you might want to talk to the British Trade and Cultural Office here.
Sorry msi, any and all questions along these lines will most likely be deleted from the site, due to legal reasons. I do wish you the best however.[/quote]
