Immigration South Australia

Improve your employment prospects in South Australia by having your overseas qualifications assessed.  

If you are looking for work in your profession or trade we provide an assessment of overseas qualifications so that a prospective employer can understand the educational level of your overseas qualification comparable to the Australian Qualifications Framework.

Assessments are FREE

We can assess qualifications that are:

  • higher education
  • post-secondary technical, and
  • vocational education

Our assessments compare levels of achievement only, and do not refer to specified competency requirements as these can only be determined by the relevant Australian assessing organisation / authority. For example, an overseas qualification such as a Bachelor of Science, may be assessed as a Bachelor Degree according to Australian education levels, but not specifically to an Australian Bachelor of Science.

Assessments provide advice about the qualification level and are not legally binding. They do not replace requirements for obtaining registration, licensing, professional membership, study at an Australian university or other education provider nor specific industry requirements. 

To be eligible you must

  • live or work in South Australia,
  • have work rights
  • Hold a completed higher education or technical qualification gained overseas

Read the frequently asked questions (FAQ) prior to commencing your application to learn more about the process.
