Skills Assessment as Developer Programmer

Applicants nominating ‘Developer Programmer’ as occupation, can obtain their skills assessment from the following Skills Assessment Authority:

Australian Computer Society

Australian Computer Society (ACS) is the authorised assessing authority that undertakes skill assessments for the purposes of skilled migration. ACS’s role is to assess the skills and qualifications of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) professionals who are considering migration to Australia to work in the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector.

Qualifications Required for Developer Programmer

An Applicant’s qualification needs to be appropriate within a broad definition of ICT - a profession trusted by society for conceiving, designing, implementing,maintaining, managing and disposing of ICT infrastructure, products, processes and services within broad professional context. It is expected that a significant objective is to educate students to be ICT professionals.

The structure of a program must clearly promote a graded transition of learning experiences from a more directed beginning to a more independent learning approach in the final year. The structure must facilitate the progressive development of a student's knowledge and skills.

Australian qualifications that have been accredited by the ACS will generally meet the ICT Major Criteria. Please note however that this does not guarantee that the qualification will be assessed as being closely related to the nominated ANZSCO occupation.

ICT Major Criteria

1. Bachelor’s degree Level: A standard 3-year Bachelor level qualification is deemed as having a major in computing if at least 33% of the qualification is ICT. Qualifications that are longer in duration are assessed to the equivalent of a 3-year AQF Level 7 (Bachelor) award.

2. Diploma, Advanced Diploma or Associate Degree Level: A Diploma, Advanced Diploma or Associate Degree qualification is deemed as having a major in computing if atleast 50% of the qualification is ICT.

3. Post Graduate qualification Level: A 2-year post graduate qualification (such as Graduate Diploma or Masters) that does not require a Bachelor with an ICT major for entry into the course is deemed as having a major in computing if at least 50% of the qualification is ICT. Qualifications are assessed to the equivalent of a 2-year AQF Level 8 and above award. An Australian postgraduate degree with only 12 subjects requires at least 67% ICT content.

ICT Minor Criteria

A Bachelor or higher qualification is assessed as a Minor when the ICT content is at least two thirds of the requirements for a major.
