Hi all, I need to be assessed as a copywriter in order to apply for a state sponsored visa in Canberra. I've studied Bachelor of Arts in Media and Communication at Macquarie University and have 1 year of closely related work experience. What are my chances of getting positively assessed?

Here are the requirements, as published by the relevant skills assessing authority:

Copywriter (ANZSCO Code 212411)
This occupation requires a qualification which is assessed as comparable to the educational level of an AQF Bachelor degree or higher degree, in a field highly relevant to the nominated occupation.
In addition to this, applicants must have at least one year of post-qualification employment at an appropriate skill level completed in the last five years which is highly relevant to the nominated occupation. If employment is not post-qualification, then five additional years of highly relevant employment are required.

If the degree is not in a highly relevant field, three years of employment at an appropriate skill level completed in the last five years in a field which is highly relevant to the nominated occupation is required. This is reduced to two years if there is an additional qualification at least at AQF Diploma level in a highly relevant field.
A positive assessment of both qualifications and employment is required for a positive Skills Assessment Outcome.

Have you checked the ACT Occupation List?

Thanks for the reply, yes I have checked the list and Copywriter is there currently. I've seen what you have posted, but I still can't decide if what I've studied is closely related to copywriting. In the handbook of my degree, one of the jobs I can work as is "writer" but that's just career options listed at the university website. I feel like my degree may not be considered closely related since there is a course called "Bachelors of Creative Writing".
