Our team of COOLlaborators in Australia is the most important service that adds value to your Aussie experience. They’re young people who speak Spanish/English, live in the most important cities and towns of the country, and whose mission is to support you so you can have a great time since day one. They’re responsible for welcoming you when you land and helping you take the first steps to settle down in your new destination.

Thanks to our COOLlaborators, we can help you during all the steps of your trip to Australia: from the moment you start planning it to the day that return home.

  • 1. Before your arrival to Australia

    When you have your plane tickets, we’ll assign you a COOLlaborator. He/she will give you some tips and send you a guide to your city. He/she will also help you:

    • Understand how to get from the airport to the city.
    • Set the date on which you’ll meet in Australia.

    • Request your Tax File Number to work in Australia.
    • Get a SIM card for your mobile.

    In your first meeting, he/she will explain how to get to your school and advice you on:

    • Which are the best neighbourhoods to live in.
    • How public transport works.
    • Where and how you can start looking for a job.

FAQ:

Before going on, we recommend that you read the frequently asked questions about the COOLlaborators and their COOLlaborations:

    Give us a buzz to help you make your dream come true.

  • What can my COOLlaborator not help me with?

    The COOLlaborator cannot:

    • Look for job offers.
    • Be with you during job interviews.
    • Find accommodation for you or book it for you.
    • Pass him/herself off as you on the phone.
    • Go with you to the doctor.
    • Write your CV.
    • Go shopping with you.
  • Will my COOLlaborator be available 24 hours a day?

    You have to bear in mind that the COOLlaborators are people like you, students who came to Australia in the same situation and who, little by little, have found their place Down Under. They have their jobs, friends and lives in this country and while they’re delighted to welcome you and help you as much as possible, they can’t be 24 hours a day looking out for you.

  • Will my COOLlaborator answer all my questions?

    Travelling could be considered an independence exercise. Before calling your COOLlaborator, we ask you to ask yourself: “Have I tried to solve the problem by myself?” Try it! If you succeed, you’ll feel proud of yourself.

    And if you have questions about medications, laws, mechanics, weather, taxes, etc., Google it first!

  • Where does the salary of the COOLlaborators come from?

    Being a COOLlaborator is an important job and that’s why AUssieYouTOO pays  COOLlaborators for each student they welcOOme and help settle down in Australia.

    Where does the money come from?

    Sometimes you ask us how AUssieYouTOO is financed, if we’re a non-profit organization or if the courses are more expensive if you hire them through us. So, we’ll tell you everything:

    1. Australian education institutions seek support from outside companies to help them with the recruitment of international students. We focus on Spanish speaking countries to provide our services to students interested in traveling Down Under.
    2. When an AUssieYouTOO Listener enrols a student in an academic course, the school gives a small fee to AUssieYouTOO – and that’s what keeps our company going!
    3. It should be pointed out that the amount paid by the student for the course is exactly the same as if he/she had done it directly with the education provider. We even have exclusive sales from the schools that you can benefit from!
    4. We decided to give a part of this small commission that we receive, to the COOLlaborators so that the students who travel to Australia with AUssieYouTOO have a friend on arrival.

    A GOOD DEAL, isn’t it?

  • Can I have a COOLlaborator even if I’m not an AUssieYouTOO student?

    Maybe…

    This is a service that we can only offer free of charge to students who have hired a course through us. If you don’t come to Australia as a student, it’s very difficult for us to assign you a person to wait for you Down Under. However, if you travel to Australia soon and think you need the support of one of our COOLlaborators, we can offer you the service for $200 Australian dollars.
