Question Does PhD count as working experience for DIAC

Hi everyone,

Currently, I am do my PhD in Chemical Engineering for the fourth year. I've already get the skill assessment done in Engineers Australia with my bachelor degree in Chemical Engineering.

For applying 175, is it possible for me to claim:
15 points for bachelor degree
10 points for working experience (three years PhD)?

I am paid by scholarship and also have the top up. Also, I can get the reference letters from my supervisors or maybe boss from our research center. I also can prepare all the payslip since I enroll in the PhD. I don't have to pay tax since I am a student. My PhD doesn't contain any course work though.

The application fee is too high, and it would be a risk for me to just log in the application and wait for the result. Sincerely, I hope someone could offer me useful information and advice. Thank you very much
