Default EOI Qualification query

Hi everyone,

I Master of Science awarded following a bachelor degree if someone might be able to help with a query about claiming bonus points for a qualification on the EOI please?

I'm applying for a skilled migrant visa as a nurse. I have a MSc (not in nursing) from Sheffield Hallam University. I'm looking at the list of qualifications exempt from assessment list, and it states:

'Master of Science awarded following a bachelor degree'

I haven't done a bachelor degree, and my MSc is not in nursing, although it is in my area of specialty, so I'm not sure if it qualifies? Without it I only seem to come out with 125 points (I do have a job offer) so I'm worried I won't get an ITA.

Can anyone offer any advice?

Many thanks in advance.

Hi everyone,

On the online EOI form, if I apply for bonus points as a nurse on the absolute skills shortage list, it seems to link my nurse qualification with my MSc, which it isn't. Maybe it's me being dim...?

Can anyone offer any advice?

Many thanks in advance.
