Points for 'Educational Qualification' if it's not related to my occupation?

Recommended Posts

Last month I received my successful CDR result. I've been recognized as 'Engineering Technologist' and my bachelor degree is comparable to 'AQF Associate Degree'.


But here is ANZSCO's description of an 'Engineering Technologist':

"This occupation has a level of skill commensurate with a Bachelor degree or higher qualification."


And here is DIAC's clause for receiving points for Educational Qualification:

"You can receive 10 points for documents that prove you have an award or qualification recognized by the assessing authority in the assessment of the skilled occupation".


Can I receive that 10 points for educational qualification? I am concern that what EA has recognized is not what ANZSCO expect for an Engineering Technologist.

This is what the Skillselect website says: -


"You may be able to receive points for a qualification that is not related to your nominated occupation. If the authority that conducts your skills assessment cannot give you an opinion about this qualification, contact Vocational Education Training and Assessment Services."


So there may be a possibility for you to get points for your degree.

Pleased to say my family and I are now Permanent Residents of Australia! :biggrin:

Even if it's an associate degree? Do you mean my qualification has not to be the same as what is necessary for my nominated occupation?
