The assessment compares an overseas qualification to an Australian qualification, using the Australian Qualifications FrameworkExternal Link

We are only able to assess higher education qualifications that are listed in the Australian Government's Department of Education ProfilesExternal Link

We DO NOT assess Australian qualifications, short courses, single subjects, incomplete courses, medical doctor qualifications, or nursing degrees.

We DO NOT assess trade qualifications. For trade qualification please check the Trades Recognition AustraliaExternal Link website.

We DO NOT assess school qualifications. For school qualifications please check the EducationExternal Link website.

We DO NOT provide an assessment process for skills, knowledge and experience that you may already have and which may count towards the achievement of a nationally recognised qualification.
