I just noticed that change yesterday, I am so happy they are now accepting international PhD graduates!

Maybe someone will be able to answer one question for me - when making an application for SS should I apply as a PhD graduate or as a Life Scientist nec (for what I have assessment and which is also on their list)?

Thanks for your post. You should apply as a Life Scientist NEC. There is a section on the form where you can include your qualifications.
