Hey guys,

I finished my bachelor degree in IT in Nov 2016 here in Australia. It looks to me that I'm eligible for the following codes for assessment(though I'm not sure).

261111 - ICT Business Analysts
261112 - Systems Analysts

261311 - Analyst Programmer
261312 - Developer Programmer
261313 - Software Engineer
261314 - Software Tester
261399 - Software and Application Programmer

263111 - Computer Network and Systems Engineer
263112 - Network Administrator
263113 - Network Analyst

I've got a couple more questions
How do I get a better idea of which code should I go for??
I got told that software and application programmers have the highest chance these days, is that correct??
And is it possible to apply for more than 1 degree assessment at a time

Thanks guys!!!

2613 has got the highest quota allocated for ITAs.
Nearly 6500 ITAs will be sent out in 2017-2018 period.

Please go through the different ANZSCO and their expected specializations in the below link. That should give you an idea.

Delta Immigration WebSite

You can apply for multiple degree assessments I suppose. Better clarify with other members here who have had similar experiences or a legal advise from Migration Agent.

All the Best :thumb:

On the DIBP website you will find the cutoffs of these job codes in the previous invite. You have to calculate your points and they should be equal or higher than the cut off to get an invite quickly.

Check the job description of these codes and whichever matched closely with the subjects that you have studied in your graduation is most likely to get you a positive assesement.

If you apply for a code and your subjects do not match with the profile, your qualification will be deemed unsuitable even if it is slightly related because if it is not closely related you need work experience to prove you have the required level of knowledge. For example, my education subjects were not closely related to the applied profile so they deducted 4 years of my work experience to make up for that.

Sometimes when you apply for one code, they review and recommend you to apply for another code.

In my opinion you have got your priorities wrong

Your question should be which Anzsco code would suit my RNR best so that the assssment agency and later CO has no hesitation in granting the visa

You try to go fo the fastest route and may find that you are stumbling at every stage

The final decision is yours

I'm a rookie at this and just trying to gather information, so don't have much idea what I should be doing. Could you tell me what do you mean by RNR and which path are you advocating here please.

RNR - Roles and responsibilities

You already know the tentative Anzsco codes under which you can fit

Now see your designation and the RNR of each Anzsco codes and see which fits your profile best and apply for assessment under that

Time spent now will save time and trouble later on

Cheers

ACS says "At least 65% of the ICT units in your qualification must be relevant to the nominated occupation"
I'm trying to match my completed units against a document provided by ACS and my units seem to be all over the place with none of the occupation in the original post having 65% of units but a mix of them, does this mean I won't be eligible for any of the ANZSCO codes??

Sounds good but I think I just encountered a problem.

I just replied this to "manpan18"

"ACS says "At least 65% of the ICT units in your qualification must be relevant to the nominated occupation"

So I just checked my possibilities and seems to me that I'm not making a total of 65% in any of the possible ANZSCO codes. Is that a possibility or am I interpreting the whole thing in a wrong way?

I don't think so. It is mostly like that when you compare education with profession. As long as you have learnt 5 or 6 programming languages, software engineering etc you can apply for the first 5 or 6 codes in your list. I would not recommend network related codes if you don't have any hands /work on experience. If you are really willing, you have to identify one that is most closest and apply for it. You can always reapply with a changed job code if it does not work. Don't worry too much about 65%.

Oh good, that's a bit better.

Yea I don't think I'll be good to go for programming codes, I just have 1 unit in java programming and 2 in web development. I'll probably have to go for networking related codes.

Thanks for your help man.
Will bother you again if need to:)

Ok. Make sure you explore 190 visa codes, eligibilities and possibilities as well.

I find it hard to believe that you have completed an Australian Uni bachelors and less than 65 % of the modules are relevant to at least one of those occupations. Grab your mark sheet, go line by line and check if each module matches. I completed a degree in 1996 and even then I could match 65%+ easily.

Second, you will need a combination of work experience and qualification to gain your skill assessment for 189. Go check on ACS. Only experience gained after meeting the requirements is eligible for points.

I've checked my mark sheet, I've got 2 units in web dev, 1 in programming, 4 in networking and around 10 generic IT and project management units.
The total of above does becomes 65% but the specialist units are not in either web dev or programming or networking. It's a mix and that is what I'm concerned about. Would I still get a positive in 1 of those 3 ??

And about your second point, one can complete a Professional Year course instead of having any work experience and that will give you 5 points.
