VETASSESS site clearly says that if an assessment is needed, you will be referred by the authority.

I think your friend didn't provide proper documentation and CO never directly rejects the case, they will give you enough opportunity to support your case and can ask the candidate to get Degree assessed if they want. Let's cloise this discussion here and let the candidate who is in doubt, reach out to DIBP and get the actual answer because as you said earlier, it might be upto the CO.

Hi,

My B.Com was 3 years degree. You can't combine two qualifications to claim points.

If you have got a positive assessment from ACS, you can claim points as per the assessment. Even if you have a Non-ICT degree, you can directly claim the points for your degree and there is no need to get it assessed as the Degree won't be used to gain Skilled Experience for the job code and hence doesn't need to be assessed. You can submit the Marksheets and degree as proof of your graduation degree.

In my case, I had a Non-ICT Degree and got a positive assessment from ACS with 6 years deduction. I claimed my points for Skilled experience as per ACS and then claimed 15 points for my Non-ICT Degree. You can claim these 15 points for any Bachelors Degree and it doesn't need to be assessed on match your occupation code.

So in a nutshell, any degree that you wish to use for gaining Skilled employment and get minimum deduction in your experience is the one that has to be assessed. Any unrelated degree doesn't need to be assessed.

The most important thing is that this Degree should be from a reputed/accredited University.
I agree with this. Claiming points for education and having an assessment for your profession are two different things.

You can basically claim points for education even if it's not relevant to your profession.

My bachelors degree from Sri Lanka was assessed by Engineers Australia as an Australian equivalent to Telecommunications Network Engineer occupation.

However, I claimed 20 points for my PhD as an educational qualification. My Phd was not assessed by EA.

Hi Friends,

The ACS has advised me to go through VETASSESS to get my qualification assessed? So in this case do i need to submit all the experience letters to VETASSESS and get my experience also assessed or i need to submit documents related to my qualifications and get my qualification assessment alone done? Which is the points test advise only(for applicants with non VETASSESS occupations?

also I am applying under the BA category which is not listed in the VETASSESS occupations?

Pl advise

desi babu..

ACS report wont mention or assess if the educational degrees are Non-IT .
They will simply assess your experience and provide feedback..

If there is any need in future DIPB will ask to get the assessment done if there is any doubt on degrees. Till that time you can claim all your full points as per your qualifications.
No need to worry as of now.

Default NON ICT Education

I have the same case got ACS + on the basis of RPL. Done B.Com and wanted to know is it allowed to claim point for this education?

When you submit EOI then there is following confirmation


Is the above Education history information correct?*
Yes No
Answering YES to the above question will award the client points as they are claiming they have either completed this qualification or award at an Australian educational institution or the relevant skills assessing authority has found the client’s qualification or award to be of this recognised standard.
The assessing authority that conducts the client's skills assessment or VETASSESS can determine whether any relevant tertiary qualifications attained outside Australia are of a standard that is comparable to the relevant Australian tertiary qualification.
