Skilled Migration program. This is a minimum of 6 in each of the four components of the English Language Testing System

  • Skilled employment:

You are awarded points for employment experience in a skilled occupation, either in Australia or another country. You
must have experience in your nominated occupation or an occupation that is closely related to earn points for skilled
employment. Deck & Engineer Merchant Navy Officers job are listed in the Australian

  • Educational qualifications:

Bachelors Degree and a Doctorate Degree, you can only claim points for the Doctorate Degree.
Qualifications earned overseas must be recognised as comparable to the relevant Australian level qualification. This will
usually be verified during the skills assessment for your nominated occupation. Note that you may also be able to claim
points for a qualification unrelated to your nominated occupation.

Australian qualifications:

You can be awarded 5 points if you have completed an Australian qualification from an Australian educational institution.
You must have earned the qualification from an Australian institution while you were in Australia. The course of study must
