Converting Aus quals to UK

Recommended Posts

Hi.

just after some advice please if anyone else has done this.

We have been living in Perth for the last 2 1/2 years and are returning to England in November . (

her around 2 years 9 ish months )

my daughter who is 17 leaves school here in October.

before we came she took her maths GCSE when she was 14 and got a B.

When we return can she convert her qualifications? Or is there a way of showing employers , university's etc what the equivalent Aus to Uk is.

Also, is she deemed as an international student as we still have our UK house and I've been still paying my national insurance contrbrutions.

thank you

Accommodation and loans etc in place and been working in maccas lol. Good luck

Hi.

is there a way of showing employers , university's etc what the equivalent Aus to Uk is.

 

In Aus there is the Australian Qualifications Framework.

 

In the UK (except Scotland) there is the Qualifications and Credit Framework.

 

In Scotland, there's The Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework.

 

Each of these defines a number of "levels", and a qual in one framework can be mapped to a qual in another.

 

A Maths GCSE isn't going to get you into uni, but if she takes HSC and gets a decent ATAR score (or equivalent) then overseas unis would interpret this according to the frameworks -- it's all standardised and mapped out.

We did have to send proof of visa and tickets but as you have a house here I would imagine that will count towards residency
