Qualifications

    You can receive up to 10 points for your educational qualifications at the time you were invited to apply if you have met the requirements for:
  • a trade qualification, diploma or bachelor degree from an Australian educational institution (5 points)
  • a bachelor degree from another educational institution that the minister is satisfied meets a recognised standard (5 points)
  • a bachelor degree in business, science or technology from an Australian educational institution (10 points)
  • a bachelor degree in business, science or technology from another educational institution that the minister is satisfied meets a recognised standard (10 points).

If you have a higher degree in business, science or technology (such as Masters in Science), but have no bachelor degree in one of those fields, you do not qualify for the award of 10 points.
