Default Skill Assessment affecting Study Visa?

Hi guys,

I am a fresh graduate of Mechanical Engineering who is trying to go for PR application from UAE. The first step of course is to get my skills assessed with Engineers Australia. If I can get a positive skill assessment for Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering degree I can get 60 points. But since I don't have the work experience, I am having a tough time writing good Career Episodes from my university projects (2 of them are fine - third one is the issue). Thus, I am worried I might not get "Professional Engineer" status and might get the Engineering Technologist.

At the same time I have the option of going to Australia to study and apply for PR over there : this is a much safer option but includes a good amount of money.

I was thinking that I will do the Skill Assessment first and then if it comes positive (as Professional Engineer) - I will go for the complete PR process. But if not, I will apply for the study visa and then apply later on.

But here is my question - one of the conditions of study visa is that you have to convince the immigration department that you won't stay back in Australia after you finish your studies. So, me having a skill assessment done before applying for study visa - does it affect me getting a student visa?

Will the immigration department know that I have applied for a skill assessment? Will they not issue study visa if they know I have done skill assessment?

What should I do in this circumstance? Advice will be really appreciated. Tia

DIBP(immigration dept) will knw about your skill assessment only when you inform them,

i hope when you apply for study visa there is no option/purpose to say about your skill assessment

2ndly i think you shoult stick to PR route, many persons who doesnt have work experience have written CDRs based on college studies, internships, training etc,

3rdly even if you get assessed as Engineering Technologist then also there is nothing to worry, go ahead with that route, your ITA may be delayed a bit, but it will come.


the study route is costly and there is no significant difference in EoI points test if you do a course in australia


this all is my opinion, think and do what you feel is better

Thank you sultan_azam for your reply. I will give a shot with the CDR and only if I am satisfied with my career episodes - I will go ahead with them.

Thank you for your advices.
