Hi All,

My better half has just completed her PhD in cancer research in the UK. We are looking at Australia migration and either wish to apply for a posdoc in Australia or industry research positions - but we are not sure if we can go via this/ qualify via a skills assessment.

She has one year and a half years experience in industry (in New Zealand) but it was after her BSc degree more than 4 years ago. Does her PhD counts as work experience? She was being paid for her PhD and worked more than 35 hours a week. So it is pretty much the same as doing a normal science research position but at the end she had to write up a thesis about her research and gain a PhD.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as we are in a limbo about how to approach this.

I am a secondary school teacher and am in the process of having my qualifications assessed, but I would gain a maximum of 65 points which doesn't seem great for an invite to apply for a visa at the moment.

Thank you very much
Alex
