Default Info required - Accountant under FSW

Hey,

One of my friend's is looking for Canadian migration under FSW. I m new to Canadian forum, so need to help him & hope all of you re well infromed on following.

He did the online assessment with me & got 68 based on following .

1. He has professional accounting qualification from UK + Bachelor degree ( 3 years) in science. He has spent 14 years of full time education @ school (from grade 1 to 13 ) . Plus full time @ university will fill 17 years of study. Points assessment speaks on 15 years full time . Is it without time spent on degree or school + degree? So is he capable of claiming 22 points for education? I mean he has 2 degrees @ bachelors level but only one in accounting. Will that be a concern?

2. Next, His spouse has completed 14 years full time education & has a diploma followed 1 & half years. So is he capable of claiming 3 points for adaptability.
Pls note that this Diploma is not from University but from accepted institution.


Can anybody comment on above claims? Is he claiming points correctly.

Thanks

Hi! I am not an expert by all means or a lawyer but I have been reading a lot during the last years.

re your question 1:

I would say your friend has 13 yrs of school (grade 1 - 13) and 3 yrs of university makes 16 yrs of education in total so he would receive 20 points for 'obtained a university degree of two years or more at the bachelor's level and completed at least 14 yrs of full-time studies'

Unfortunately all higher levels are not applicable. The next level with 22 points states that the diploma or certificate must be 3 yrs and other than university. Is your friend's accounting qualification a 3 yr diploma or trade certificate ?

If his spouse has a BA and 14 yrs of school she actually scores 4 points.

Good luck!

Of course professional qualification in accounting is other than a university but of course in UK treated as equivalent to Masters. But in other soils its treated as 4 year bachelor.If info is as such can he then score 22 points?

Next - His spouse only has 1 year diploma with 14 years of full-time education.

Any other view on this?

ACA or professional qualification do not count as a Masters for Immigration.

Our PR application we claimed

12 years to age 16 +

2 years for A Levels +

3 years for BSc

=
17 years

Agreed. Then can he claim 22 points as he has 2 degrees?

i,e Accounting qualification + BSc = 2 bachelors level degrees and 17 years of study.

Your accounting qualification is not counted as a 2nd degree it is just an extension of your original degree.

Hubby has Bsc + ACA and he was only able to claim for the degree and NOT the time he studied for the ACA qualification as it is classed as an extension of his degree and not a further degree or masters

It's not reasonable. Then what are the instances for claiming 22 points for 2 degrees.? There must be . Otherwise there is no point of arranging different level for 22 points.

If you went to Uni and did say a Bsc in Math and Physics and then went to do a BEd to becom a teacher that would count as two Bachelor degrees.

you mean both degrees should lead & relevant to your profession? where is such indicated. Any migration lawyer confirmed to you on that?

no that was to illustrate how you would claim for the years study ie 2 degrees.

If your friend has a Bsc and then another Bachelor degree in accounting then yes he can claim the years of study for both of the degrees.

If your friend has a Bsc and then a "professional accounting qualification from UK" then he only has 1 degree. Professional qualifications (ieACA CIMA etc) are not completed at Uni as they are done under contract with the Institue (IE ICEAW or CIMA etc).

Now do you understand my point
