    Time to forget about migrating to Oz?

    Do I need to assess my PhD ?

    Is your PhD from Australia?! If so, I feel it is weird that it has to be assessed to have reached an 'Australian equivalent level'.

    Trying to be positive

    Thanks for your reply, that was exactly what I did. I will try other ones at some points.

    Trying to be positive

    Does anyone know by chance if MARA agents from Australia or UK would cover overseas cases ?! I am from Asia. I may want to consult a MARA-registered agent at some point. However, I did try to email a MARA agent in Australia , and disappointingly, I heard no reply?!
  7. but certainly it would be good to check for job opening, when the time is closer...
  8. yes, that's true, policies always change. I often think that it may anyway take up to a year, or even longer for the application to finish.... just wait and see....
  9. hee.... as i am not sure about their criteria for assessment... whether they need to get an 'exact' qualification matched... I worry that they would think my BSc is too short (as I saw other peoples' posts that they got Vetassess negatively assessed because of the short of credit after a direct comparison of the degree). I also have a Bristish MSc (1 year), and a German PhD (3 years). Again, the during of my PhD is shorter than the normal Australian one, so I am not sure how they would see it. But, I guess, now, it is more up to them than me.... just need to wait.
  10. Thanks both Little Sarah and Tickled Pink. As a matter of fact, I do have a PhD. However, my scientific track is not too smooth so far, I finished my PhD and stop for few years before engaging in my last position to teach at a College (degree level) for 4 years. The job was so busy, and i had little time to do research at all. Since last year, I have been in a job, which I do not need to teach a lot, but have more time to reveal the literature, think about research and write papers. So, hopefully, I can anticipate to boost my publication a bit.... Certainly, i would be glad to have a lecturing position in NSW, otherwise, I am also happy to work as Research Associate or even move to the industry.... By the way, are there jobs for microbiologists around?! I indeed don't mind starting off from a lower position....
  11. Hi, Jo, Your replies are always helpful and informative! Yes, I decided to try the NSW Uni Lecturer. Better not risk with Victoria SS, and I see that Queensland only sponsors a low number of applicants in the recent rounds. I just sent out my application for Vetassess assessment, I hope that goes well. Let's see.... Indeed, i do worry about how they assess qualifications. I do have a British BSc (Hons), but I did it part-time, and it was after I first got a Higher Diploma in the same subject. Therefore, my part-time degree was finished within a relatively short time (2 years). I hope that they would just see that the UK and Australian BSc are equivalent....
  12. i think i will first try NSW - University lecturer, as i do have 4 years of recent and solid university teaching experience The last year, i mainly focused on scientific research, therefore, I think i am also eligible to apply as a Microbiologist, as that has been my major focus since my undergraduate training....
