Myths and fallacies continue to surround the popular occupation category of University Lecturer [ANZSCO: 242111] for Skilled Migration to Australia. Many hold that lecturers teaching in Universities can only be classified as University Lecturer, whereas, the fact is that any Lecturer or Assistant Professor teaching degree level students in a college or a university where the degree is awarded to the student by a university qualifies as a University Lecturer. Another myth concerning this occupation is that a Lecturer is someone who holds a Ph.D. degree, whereas, even Lecturers with a Bachelors degree can be classified as Lecturers. The primary requirement for a Lecturer is to hold at least a bachelor’s degree in the field of teaching with at least one year of relevant work experience. Additionally, University Lecturers must have had some research work or paper publications to their credit in order to be classified as University Lecturers. The VETASSESS, the skills assessment authority for assessing Lecturers for migration purposes, strongly focusses on the quality of research publications a University Lecturer supports his/her application with.
