The ACT Government, through the Office for Multicultural Affairs, provides free online assessments of overseas higher education qualifications, such as Certificate of Higher Education, Foundation Degree, Diploma of Higher Education, Bachelor Degree, Master Degree, Postgraduate Diploma, Doctorate Degree (PhD or DPhil) or Professional Doctorate, for an Australian citizen, permanent resident or asylum seeker living in the ACT.
The assessment compares an overseas qualification to an Australian qualification, using the Australian Qualifications Framework
We are only able to assess higher education qualifications that are listed in the Australian Government's Department of Education Profiles
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 Australia website.
We DO NOT assess school qualifications. For school qualifications please check the Education 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.
