You must complete the course to claim points

You cannot claim points even if you have studied for the required duration as it also asks that the course should have been completed
Cheers

Thanks for the quick response.

I read on the immigration law website of Australia that course must be completed that contributes to the degree so i think even if a person completes 2 years study that contributes to his degree, can be claimable for 5 points.

and completed is defined as: in relation to a degree, diploma or trade qualification, means having met the academic requirements for its award.

So if during my 2 years study i think i have met the academic requirements to successfully complete my 3 years phd so in that case 5 points are claimable?

Do you think i am understanding it correctly?

Please help.

I personally donít believe thatís correct
But of course I have very limited knowledge on the subject

You may like to consult a Mara agent for a final clarity

Cheers
