Just want to share my experience with University of Sydney.
I applied for Master of Commerce back in March. I already hold another Master Degree from UNSW that was completed in 2008.
University of Sydney is asking for English proficiency evidence as my other local degree was obtained more than 5 years ago WTF!! I told them they could see from my transcript that I passed this degree with Distinction average which would have required high proficiency in English. I have also been working in financial services sector for last 9 years and currently work as Senior Analyst for global organisation which has operations in 35 countries. I have provided them letter signed by Head of HR which clearly states that I manage APAC countries and liaise with stakeholders at all management levels in my current level and my role requires high level of English proficiency.
The Director of faculty is apparently still not willing to accept this letter. I am shocked how it is justified to not accept local degree and experience.
Anyone else experienced similar situation?
