    @adelaide8 as per immigration website, you can only claim points if you have completed your australian education
    "You can receive five points if you have completed one or more degrees, diplomas or trade qualifications for award through a course or courses taken at an Australian educational institution."

    have you tried to check your eligibility points?

    @gerardds hi. based on my qualifications in the philippines, i'm already ok w/ the eligibility points (age, degree and professional experience). are you saying i can't apply for a PR if i haven't finished my degree in australia yet?
  • gerarddsgerardds North RydePosts: 221Member
    @adelaide8 you can apply for PR if you have 60 points. im saying you cannot claim points for australian education qualification. Just wondering, why did you applied for student visa instead of PR directly?
