Hello everyone!

I have recently completed my mechanical engineering course in England and in a few months time I will obtain my degree from the university as well. Luckily my university is in the list of Recognised Graduate subclass 476 which is specifically for engineering graduates so I believe that certainly makes me eligible for this visa!

However I think I am also eligible for Skill Independent 189 and probably 190 visa if I achieve straight 8 bands in all IELTS general components so I will score up to 60 points! so my question is that if I score straight 8 bands in all the components will I be eligible for this 189 visa or not? if not then why?

I would be really happy if someone could guide me through this!

Thank you!

yeah certainly! well I would prefer some place where I could easily find engineering jobs! probably Western Australia would suit me as it is hub of engineering jobs or any other place where the engineering jobs are quite easy to find!

If you can get a positive skills assessment - and the IELTS, then yes you could go for the 189 visa.

 

positive skills assessment? is that some assessment by the Engineers Australia?

By the way my course was accredited by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers, UK so would that be helpful as well?

Yes you will need skills assessment from Engineers Australia, UK degrees under Washington Accord can go through faster process. Check EA website for requirements.

 

As for accreditated degree - But you can become chartered with EA if have chartership with imeche.

ahan yeah a few months ago i dropped an email to Engineers Australia regarding this matter and they replied in the affirmative saying that they will accept my degree etc.

other than that my course was accredited up to the level of incorporated engineer!

yeah!
