I suggest that you locate and download a file on the ACS website that tells all about work experience evidence and how to present it. If you get it wrong then it wont be accepted.

Hi Mark,

I have a three months gap in my PhD degree completion and PhD degree award date. PhD degree is my highest degree but it is not related to my nominated occupation which is Mechanical Engineer. I will just claim points for PhD degree but it has nothing to do with my nominated occupation.

1-Can i claim expereince after degree completion date? I have all the documentary proofs and its mentioned on PhD degree that I defended it on 19th December 2011 but degree issue date is 22 march. I have other docs like provisional degree and PhD verification letter on which degree completion date is also mentioned. EA assessment letter has mentione degree award date i.e 22 March. I want to claim 5 years work exp from PhD degree completion date i.e 19th Dec 2011, is it possible?

2-I also have an option to claim 8 years experience in my nominated occupation as I started working in August 2008 in X organization to date. Before that i was a full time PhD student from Dec 2004 to July 2008. I defended PhD quite late as I couldnt finish it on time. Considering the whole scenario, I wanna know which option I should go with 5 years or 8 years? I make a total of 55+5 points if I claim 5 years (I already have state nomiantion of victoria) and my total goes to 60+5 if i claim 8 years exp. Kindly suggest please.

To sum up the issue:

Infact, I m claiming point after my nominated occupation as Mechanical Engineer and for that the degree is bachelors, and some forums suggest that I can claim as many no of yrs of work exp as possible in parallel to post graduate degree as long as I can prove it as full time. Therefore, I was thinking to claim 8 years but since I need only 5 years to get 60 points therefore I am thinking to be on a safe side and want to start claiming after 19 dec 2011. Atleast, Exp between 19 dec 2011 to 22 march 2012 should be counted as the PhD degree is not in my nominated occupation and my work exp has no connection with my PhD and since I am claiming it after 19 Dec therefore chances of CO's doubt (one cannot claim PhD points + work exp relevant to PhD) of my work exp connection with the completion of my PhD also doesnt stand. This is what I am gonna do, if you further comments, kindly feel free. And if you have any such case in mind kindly tell me ab it. I know one same case where the whole exp during the PhD was counted as it was after bachelors (nominated occupation) and it did not contribute to the compeltion of his PhD.

I have asked EA the same question and they responded positively about it as they said that my under pinning qualification is bachelors and all the rel exp after that is claimable. However, I did not go for rev skill assessment as it is not mandatory.

Your kind and early reply is awaited.

Best regards
