Pathways through recognition for overseas qualifications
If you have qualifications and skills obtained overseas you may be able to have them recognised in Australia. Our team at Migration Services has a specialist team in the Overseas Qualifications Unit that can assist migrants who are permanent* or temporary residents of Western Australia with recognition of their overseas gained qualifications and skills.
The OQU can assess post-secondary qualifications including:
- formal technical and vocational qualifications (Certificate IV and above); and
- formal higher education qualifications (bachelor degree and above).
This is a free service available only to Western Australian residents.
To find out more about recognition of overseas qualifications, visit the Migration portal.
