Default ACS Skill Assessment

Hello Everybody,

I'm an international student in Melbourne, just finished my master's degree in 'Information Systems' (comes under ACS) from La Trobe University,

While studying in Australia, I worked for an Australian e-commerce firm as a junior 'ICT Business Analyst' with an experience of 1.8 years,

I've done bachelors in commerce (B.com) (no ICT content) from India (Mumbai University),

Apart from B.com, I've also done an advanced diploma in Systems Programming (2 year course with major ICT content) from an Indian computer training institute,

I also has 2 years of work experience in India as Systems Administrator,

While going through the skill assessment, I came to know that I need to do Professional Year (PY) program to get my Australian master's degree assessed for migration purposes,

Since, my bachelors degree is 'B.com' without any ICT content, I cannot assess it for my chosen occupation 'ICT Business Analyst',

Is it possible for me to assess my master's degree without doing PY? either by assessing my advanced diploma from India (major ICT content) or Australian work experience as an ICT Business Analyst (1.8 years)?

Thanks and regards

Hey Nick

Since your B.Com counts as non-ICT, lets discount that for now. Lets also discount your SysAdmin experience as it is not related to Business Analyst position you are targeting. I'm guessing your Diploma from a training institute is full-time course, then here is what ACS says

Quote:
Qualification comparable to AQF Diploma and Vendor Certification
If your AQF qualification or Vendor Certification is assessed as having an ICT major which is
closely related to your nominated occupation, you will require 5 years relevant work
experience completed within the past 10 years or 6 years relevant work experience completed
anytime in your past work history (whichever provides the earliest skill date) to meet the suitability
criteria.
If your AQF qualification or Vendor Certification is assessed as having an ICT major which is
NOT closely related to your nominated occupation, you will require 6 years relevant work
experience completed anytime in your past work history to meet the suitability criteria.
More details can be found in this PDF Document from ACS.

Hope this helps

All the best..!

I'm assuming you're assessing for 189/post study, 485 doesn't require work experience. Your work experience doesn't count if its work experience while studying. Work experience only counts after you've graduated.


You will require an Australian Bachelor degree or higher with a major in ICT which is closely
related to the nominated occupation (ANZSCO) plus one of the following requirements for a
suitable skills assessment:
o 1 year of relevant work experience completed after the completion date of the
relevant Australian degree, or
o Completion of an ACS Professional Year Program
