Australian study requirement issue/confusion due to advanced standing credit

TG24TG24 Total Reaction Points: 0Member
Hello Everyone,

I hope you everyone is having a great time!

I am in dire need of some help/suggestion as i am really confused about my whole situation which is explained below :

I completed a Master's degree in Information systems from a renowned Australian University. I had total of 16 units in my course but during my last semester, I was granted 2 (up on request) advance standing credit from my previous Master's degree (MBA overseas). My overseas degree was 100% English instructed but Non-CRICOS registered.
As a result, I completed 14 units at Latrobe. I was attending classes for all 4 semesters and was in Australia for more than 92 weeks / 16 months. My completion letter says 104 weeks of registered course.

However, I have been advised by some agents that i do not fulfil ASR (Australian study requirement) and need to study Master's again. I did received my Temporary 485 visa but i am worried about ACS assesment and PR .

Did anybody have been through this experience before and is there any way out of this? I just credit for a subject which i had already done before.

P.S : My university won't be taking back the credit or add the unit in my degree if i do it separately. I have had several talks with them already.

Please advise

New SimplyStall Mobile App!

Hi everyone!

I'm very happy to announce PinoyAu Forum's new app called "SimplyStall" . It's a new Gumtree like service for Pinoys in Australia but in a way better!

So if you have any items just collecting dust? Why not convert it to cash?

If you are selling new items or products or wish to give an item away for free then this might be a good avenue for you.

This project is a new initiative to unify and have a common portal for Pinoys in Australia to sell and share stuffs.

It's now available on Google Play and Apple App Store.

Please do try it out. I'd appreciate if you can help me spread the good news and start selling your old or new stuffs.
