IMMIACCOUNT QUESTIONS (Qualification)

Recommended Posts

I have come across this section in IMMIACCOUNT which is asking me to fill up my educational details:

 

"Highest recognised qualification This is the highest recognised qualification that the applicant has undertaken and not the highest qualification relating to their nominated occupation. Example If the applicant has completed a Bachelor degree and a Masters degree, the applicant should select the Masters degree as the highest recognised qualification. If the applicant has nominated Accountant as their occupation and hold a Bachelor of Commerce, but have also completed a Doctor of Philosophy, the applicant should select the Doctor of Philosophy as their highest recognised qualification."

 

I have completed a Bsc degree in applied accounting from Oxford Brookes University and received a positive assessment on it. However, I have also completed all the 14 papers of ACCA qualification and I am an affiliate. Therefore, should I mention "ACCA qualification" as my highest recognised qualification. Please note that I dont know if it falls under the "Recognised" category since i have received neither positive nor negative assessment on it. Moreover, I have not mentioned it in my EOI. So, am I going to confuse CO by mentioning it? Or should I avoid mentioning it altogether?

 

Please help.

My understanding is that ACCA is normally assessed as equivalent to a bachelors degree for immigration purposes (even though ACCA says it is equivalent to a masters degree). So it seems logical to me that you would say your highest qualification is a bachelors degree, regardless of whether you're talking about ACCA or your BSc. That's only my guess though! Hopefully someone who knows more will be able to give you a proper answer...

Hi.

 

Recently I have completed the Bsc degree in applied accounting from Oxford Brookes University by completing 9 subjects of ACCA. Will that be enough to receive a positive assessment? Thanks
