Apply for an overseas qualification assessment

The Overseas Qualifications Unit (OQU) assesses eligible qualifications gained overseas to determine their comparability with Australian standards.

Apply for an overseas qualification by following these steps:

  • determine whether you are eligible for an assessment
  • prepare your supporting documents
  • submit your online OQU application

The OQU does not assess qualifications for migration purposes.

If you need a qualification assessment as part of an Australian visa application, call the Department of Immigration and Border Protection on 13 18 81.​
