Need help with an overseas qualification assessment?

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

​The OQU can assess post-secondary qualifications including:

  • formal technical and vocational qualifications (Certificate IV and above); and
  • formal higher education qualifications (bachel​or degree and above).

This is a free service available only ​to Western Australian residents.
