189 - Degree points claim

Recommended Posts

Dear experts,

I desperately need advice on the following. Not sure what to do.

I have a Diploma in Electronics and followed by 8 years of experience as an Electronic Instrument trade worker. Also, I have completed a Bachelors of Electrical and Electrical engineering degree as part time.

I received positive skills assessment for 8 years with diploma (I did not submit my degree details to TRA).  But How do I claim for my degree without assessment?

FYI, my degree is from NTU Singapore which comes under Institution of Engineers Singapore, that is a signatory of Washington accord.


I got friend who commented that I should go for VETASSESS Point test advise service to claim my point. Another friend said I don’t have to do any assessment since my degree comes under accredited degrees.

What should I do? Please advise.


Yours faithfully,

Sonat Paul.

If you are certain the degree is fully accredited (with no restrictions/caveats) with IES/Washington Accord then it should be equated to an Australian Bachelor. As such it should automatically earn you 15 points in any skilled visa application.

Hi Richard,

Thank you. 

Yes, my degree is fully accredited under IES --> https://www.ies.org.sg/pageview.php?page_id=110

My degree is from NTU-->> Bachelor of Electrical and Electronics engineering, graduated at Dec 2012.

I also attached a document that sent to me by a friend who downloaded it from AEI NOOSR.  So I am going to attach these two evidence if I get invited. Will the CO ask for any other document?

Thank you.

Best regards,
