UK NARIC Statement of Comparability for General Tier 1

Post by lost30 » Wed Nov 03, 2010 11:54 pm

Hi Everyone,

I am new here on forum. I have this query:

For General Tier 1 PBS ( Highly Skilled ), postgraduate diploma from uk listed colleges, were giving 30 points on points based calculator for qualifications, before 15th October but after this date the new requirement was brought in, that anyone who will apply General Tier 1 PBS and want to claim 30 points for their postgraduate diploma (uk listed colleges) should have STATEMENT OF COMPARABILITY FROM UK NARIC and they should be EQUIVALENT TO UK BACHELORS DEGREE AND IF IT IS NOT EQUIVALENT TO BACHELORS DEGREE, NO POINTS CAN BE CLAIMED. And after 15th October, postgraduate diplomas are giving 0 points on Points Based Calculator for qualifications ( Highly Skilled )and also no points for english language.

So, Anyone knows about this or have anybody contacted or applied to UK NARIC for statement of comparability?

Your Replies will be grateful.
