Smile Life Scientists ANZSCO 2345** gather here

In the latest combined skilled occupation list published on 11 March 2019, Life scientist and related occupations are now eligible for Skilled independent 189 and nomination based 190/489 visa.

This is good news for all the biologists and researchers out there who want to apply for PR.

Lets gather here and share your experiences or suggestions on skills assessment (VETASSESS) and EOI submission.

This is great news. You have scored 70 so I am assuming you submitted an EOI already?
Hopefully you get an invite while trying for PTE. But all the best for getting a +10 boost.

Two questions about VETASSESS assessment,
i) Did they deduct any work experience after Bachelor's degree?
ii) Did you work as RA/TA while studying and claimed work experience?


I worked as RA during master's but it was 16hr/week, I am assuming VETASSESS accepts only 20 hr/week.

Your input is welcome.
And please keep us posted in this thread.
Thanks

Hi amit2410,

Thank you! Yes I will submit EOI later today.

1) on their website they say a qualification and 1 year post-qualification experience is regarded deemed skilled. I have 2-year full time Aus work experience as graduate RA after my PhD (Aus obtained). They deducted 1 year. I am not sure how many years they gonna deduct if it is overseas experience.

2) My PhD was covered by full scholarship but I didn't risk using PhD as work experience while Bsc as qualification this time because my Bsc was obtained in China and they would have taken 10 weeks to verify my Chinese qualification. Simply I don't wanna wait. 16hr/week part-time work seems unlikely to be assessed as experience because they specifically said 20hr/week. Was your master fully paid by scholarship? if it is, you can risk using it as experience if you absolutely need the points.

Cheers!!!

Ahh I see now where did you get the 5 points for experience. Its from working in Aus.
Unfortunately I do not have local experience to claim, relying entirely on foreign exp which at this moment I have 2 years+.
My master's was not paid by scholarship so I cant claim that.

I guess my options are limited to high English score+Bachelors+Age = 65 as of now.

Thanks for your help.
If you have free time, you can create a EOI case in myimmitracker website, it will help others to follow the trend.

All the best.

Hi Jenny

I was just wondering about your profile and score. (Also to plan for my PhD).

Based on the 189 points table,
were you able to claim 5 points for Australian education and another 5 points for Specialist education (Research MS/PhD)?

In addition, can you claim bonus 5 points for studying in regional area in Aus?

So if I do PhD in regional Uni, i can claim 15?

Correct me if I am wrong.
Thanks.

Hi, my education points are PhD 20 plus studying in Aus 5 points (https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visa...9/points-table). I was not able to claim another 5 points as specialist education qualification because my PhD discipline falls in Medicine biological science instead of just biological science!

Hope this makes sense. Please check the website for more details.

Hi Jenny,

Thank you so much for sharing. Do you think that you may receive invitation within the current financial year? Or you still need to wait till the next financial year?

I have recently submitted my 189 EOI as Biochemist, and I think that we are sort of in the same list.
