Also, I don't have a link for my syllabus from the university website. so I need to explain all the comparison in 2 A4 Sheets in the cover sheet. so any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.
Even I am facing the same issue. I have soft copies of my syllabus but am unable to provide links. I am pretty much writing an essay comparing my education with Australian education (found some course syllabus online). Its quite a task to get this done in 2 A4 sheets.

Default AACA Assessment

I have done my B.Arch from VTU, Bangalore in 2003 & wish to apply for Stage-1 (AACA). Senior members, please advise if anyone has successful assessment? If so, please help with the questions below:
1) Is it ok to provide soft copy of syllabus (of year 2000) & also provide website link for recent syllabus?
2) How can I map subjects studied (vs Australian core subjects)?
3) any B.Arch VTU success stories on this forum?

Thanks

Hello Fellow architects

Any Indian Architect there who has got positive skill assessment?

I have done B.Arch ,5 year degree from PTU Punjab, India
My wife has done 5 year B.Arch Degree from GNDU, India. Also she has done M.arch(2 years) in Urban Design from GNDU, Amritsar, India.

The problem is that our course has mandatory 6 month training which is not counted by the AACA for positive skill assessment.

Shall we proceed for the assessment for my wife as she is having 10+4 semesters of study(B.Arch +M.Arch) or should we go by some other profession such as A.D or university lecturer.

Your views will be appreciated


Thanks

Hi Everyone,

Any Architects with 5 years Bachelor Degree (B.Arch) managed to get positive assessment from AACA? After reading the posts in this thread I understand that it is very difficult to get positive assessment from AACA with Bachelor Degree. Many commented that the reason could be the compulsory training period which is included in the 5 year degree duration.

As per AACA, This training period does not contribute to the minimum period of study.

Can anyone suggest a good & exercised MARA agent for AACA skill assessment? I would like to check my eligibility.

Thanks.

Hi,
This story sounds like mine from 2016. If I were you, I wouldn't waste the time, money and effort in applying through AACA. Me along with 3 others from VTU got a negative assessment. Luckily my job title and duties matched Construction Project Manager role. So I went ahead with Vetassess. They need a lot of documentation to give you a positive skills assessment. You should definitely try this if you haven't.

Cheers,
NM

I wouldn't recommend AACA. Most people waiting for an invite being onshore, and others desperately relying on this have washed hands. Try vetassess instead. 133111 if you have experience working in construction management and can provide substantial documentation along with a couple of recommendations from managers (this worked wonders for me). All the best

Cheers,
NM

Hi Frozen,

When you received negative assessment, did they specify any reason for rejection? Could you please let me know if your degree is 5 years degree including mandatory training?

Also Please share if you have any sample cover letter for AACA.

Thanks.

No reasons were mentioned apart from " NOT SUITABLE" . This was in 2016.
Yes. Under COA India, my B.Arch 5 years degree had a compulsory 1 semester traineeship.
I do not have the letter mate, Sorry.

Cheers,
NM
