Hi friends,
I have a degree in commerce alongwith a diploma in Interior Design [Indian education]. I have been able to work for 5+ years in the Gulf as a designer with this diploma. However, WES does not recognize it as equivalent to Canadian education.

Is it possible to secure a job as designer [even JUNIOR] to begin with when I land in Canada-without really undergoing education? If not, any short term courses [upto a year] that would allow me to launch into this field soon? I really do not want to spend time and money on a degree course-as it would be minimum 4 years.

Perhaps in the future once I gain some money I can think on those lines.

Brother same situation! Im a civil diploma holder working in uae as a site engineer in a fitout company. I want to immigrate canada but when i check with wes it is considering my diploma as a secondary school diploma having only 30 points in crs and 5 points in fswp.

What do i do?

Can i do bba just for the sake of degree and try to immigrate or any other better options. Plzzz enlighten me brother

Hey, is there any authorized organization apart from WES that does accredit an Interior Design diploma? I'm from India, I have a 3 year University BSc degree and a 2 year diploma in interior design but I doubt if WES would assess my diploma. Please help if anyone has got a similar diploma assessed.

Thanks in advance,
Aashima

Hello. I came across one of your queries on the portal, and i was hoping you might be able to help me with it. My query is somewhat similar. I am a delhi university graduate with a bachelors degree is commerce. I pursued diploma in Interior design 1 year course from Polytechnic for Women after graduation. I wish to apply for PR in Canada, and I am struggling to provide relevant details. I am not sure if they would consider it. Many suggested I check on the wes equivalency tool but there is not mention on diploma on the list.
how do i go about it. please help. thanks in advance

Hi Aashima,
For immigration purposes your Bsc will be enough. WES will recognize it if its from a recognized institution. For Licensing in ID industry-they may be ways to bridge the gap or prove you hv an equivalent qualification. Can talk more about it-but I guess Immigration would be step 1. Hope this helps
