There is no fee for a comparative education assessment undertaken by us*.

You will have to pay a fee if you need to have your qualifications and transcripts translated into English.

* If you are not eligible for Overseas Qualification Unit services and want to apply for an assessment of your educational level, please contact the Australian Government Department of Education and Training for educational assessments of higher education, post-secondary or technical and vocational qualifications. These assessments establish the Australian-equivalent educational level for overseas qualifications within the Australian Qualifications Framework.

Please note: Australian Government’s Department of Education charges an application fee for their service.
