Skills Migration Assessments

Skills Migration Assessment

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

The assessment can take up to six (6) weeks from the time your application and documents are received. To apply for an assessment, complete the Application Form, pay the appropriate fee and forward supporting documentation to the DSR Administrator at dsr@daa.asn.au.

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

As part of the assessment you must meet the educational requirements for English language, which requires that applicants 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 the two English Language Proficiency tests and provide a copy of the results along with other supporting documentation.

Migration

DAA can only provide advice on applying for a Skills assessment.  There are a number of visa options for residents of overseas countries who wish to work in or migrate to Australia. For information on these visa options and for all other questions relating to migration, visit the Department of Immigration and Border Protection website.

DAA has 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 standards and processes for assessment and recognition of dietetic qualifications are established and maintained by the Australian Dietetics Council (ADC), an external governing body that ensures DAA is delivering an efficient, effective and equitable dietetic skills assessment service that supports the operations of the Department of Immigration and Border Protection’s Migration Programs.
