Clarification Required for Citizenship Requirement

Hi All,

I have found this forum quite interesting with valuable information. I was desperately seeking some advice regarding my status as to where I stand.
I am Indian citizen and had done my Bachelors in Computer Science & IT Engineering in India later I pursued Masters from Univ of Southern Queenland in Australia by 2007 and returned back to my country since then
I'm working as Software Engineer for SAP Basis Module supporting BHP Billiton SAP Project of Aus from India for past 3 yrs.
Now I want to return back to Aus and also I have done points assessment
from a consultant and found that I'm scoring 65 points which is eligible for applying.

Now the question is the time period which I stayed in Aus i.e.3 years as a student will this get counted when I apply for Citizenship in future within Aus
or not.

I'll be waiting desperately for a response

If you have not been living in Australia since 2007, the time up until then as a student will not be relevant.
Read Australian Citizenship – Application process for Australian citizenship
The 65 points does not commence until at earliest July this year.
