I had done Bachelors in Software Engineering from Bahria University, Karachi. I want to know if my degree is equivalent australian degree? so that I can apply for skill assessment for Group A.
You would know if the course descriptions of the degrees was similar or identical.
Essentially a degree is considered equivalent if this 1:1 relationship holds between an AU bachelors and foreign bachelors degree.
I think the assessing agency (i.e. ACS) uses NOOSR publications to find out whether the degrees are equivalent. Unfortunately access to most NOOSR publications requires a fee.
@OP: Are you sure it says "equivalent" and not "recognized"? Recognized overseas universities are listed on Immi's website, I think. Do a search.
If yours is a recognized engineering institute (for example in India, we have AICTE - All India Council for Technical Education) by a corresponding technical board in your country, it will most likely be of global standards, and will be recognized.
Also, for ACS to recognize your degree as IT major, you should have computer software/hardware/networking relating subjects covered in 2 full semesters.
You can analyze and decide.
Hi Faraz,This is Country Education Profiles (CEP) that provides information and guidelines on comparing qualifications from 119 countries.
