Is Phd a work experience


I just compleated Phd from UK under full scholarship from UK research council. They paid my tution fees and gave substantial monthly stipend. I came to australia under 457 visa 2 months ago. I am working for the employer but would like to file PR under 175. I can manage the points except I dont have 1 year experience in last 2 years as I was pursuing my PHD. So my question is is PhD research under full scholarship considered as work experience by DIAC?
Would really appreciate if somebody can help.

Thanks in advace.

If you were actually employed in research and have suitable documentation for that, actually showing employment as against study it could be worth trying but if it was more study, I would not see it being allowed.
The Immi site has a pre-lodgement enquiry link for skilled visas you will find via the contact heading to top right - Professionals and other Skilled Migrants - Workers - Visas & Immigration
