Skills Migration Assessment

If you are a permanent resident of another country and have successfully completed an accredited Nutrition and Dietetics program in Australia, OR you have completed the second stage of the Dietetic Skills Recognition (DSR) process (MCQ exam), you may be eligible to apply for a Skills Migration Assessment.

We have been specified by the Minister for Immigration and Border Protection in accordance with the Migration Regulations 1994 as the assessing authority for the occupation of Dietitian – ANZSCO Code: 251111.

The assessment can take up to six (6) weeks from the time your application and documents are received.

As part of the assessment, you must meet the educational requirements for English language. This requires you to have completed an accredited dietetics program in Australia within the two years prior to application. If you do not meet this criteria, you will need to successfully pass one of two English Language Proficiency tests and provide a copy of the results along with other supporting documentation.

To apply for an assessment

Please complete the Application Form, pay the relevant fee and forward supporting documentation to our DSR Administrator.

If you have any problems completing the application please contact the DSR Administrator.
