Will I score points under COMPASS if my candidate’s educational institution is found on the Employment Pass application form?

You will be awarded points only if your candidate’s qualification is assessed to be comparable to a Bachelor’s degree in the UK system. This is determined with reference to international recognition bodies, such as the UK National Information Centre for recognition and evaluation of international qualifications and skills (UK ENIC). Otherwise, no points will be awarded even if the institution is found in MOM’s drop down list of accredited institutions.

Before you submit an EP application, you can use the enhanced Self-Assessment tool (SAT) to get an indicative outcome of your EP application, including COMPASS scores.
