Default Messrs Humphries/Metcalfe/Miller: points for education

Hi,

I am a 25-year-old British citizen, resident in the UK all my life and currently score 72 on the self-assessment for skilled workers. I completed 13 years of education at school and did a four-year university degree. One of the four years was spent in a work placement, but I was still registered at the university as a full-time student for that year and had to submit two assignments during that year which counted towards my degree. Without the year out, the degree awarded would have been a different one (Business Administration as opposed to Business Studies), so it's not a trivial thing.

My question is, if I take and pass a part-time Master's degree, will I qualify for maximum points for Education (I currently score 20, but would I get the extra five) - because I already have 17 years of full-time education? Or do I have to make sure it's a full-time degree because my year out during my bachelor's doesn't count as a year of education? The reason I ask is that I can take a Master's in six months to one year (ie fairly quickly) which could be a fast way of getting enough points to give my application a better chance (I'd end up with at least 77 according to the self-assessment tool).

A part-time masters is a masters, so it would count the same as full time
studies.

The University of Luton, United Kingdom. Does that have a bearing on the officer's decision?

It is an educational credential issued by a recognized and governmet
approved University in the UK and should be accepted as a Masters
level credential.

My question about institute referred to some "so called " life style
degrees and diplomas issued by non government recognized diplomas.

Yes, it's a real university, hehe!

It seems that although I will be studying for a part-time Masters, this time will be counted as full-time education which give me five more points
