B.H.M.S degree validity

Hi Dr Satnam Singh. I’m Dr Gauravjeet Singh. I completed B.A.M.S from Guru Ravidas Ayurvedic university in 2018. I just want to know that how can i evaluate my degree from Canada and which documents i need in this process.
Thank you

Hi Dr Saajan,
I am a BDS from MUHS Nashik and have sent my documents for evaluation to WES. My application is ON HOLD since they want transcripts issued my MUHS only. As per my understanding, the college issues the transcripts which are then attested by MUHS and sent to WES in a sealed envelope. I followed the same process yet the application is on hold due to the above reason. Kindly share the process followed by you.
Thanks

Hi Dr snehal
I appreciate your help you put on forum. I am BAMS Graduate from MUHS.
I want to ask ,do we have to courier two separate packages to IQAS one with transcript from UNIVERSITY And second package of form,passport,payment receipts ??
Or sending all documents with sealed transcript in one big package from university will do? TIA

Hi Revan,

My name is Priti and i have sent my doubt regarding to fill the online application of IQAS to this mail address- rockyrevan82@gmail.com.

Also please inform whether M.D.( Alternative Medicine)- correspondence course done from IBAM, Kolkata is valid to get evaluated as per canadian education credential. Please inform as tomorrow, i want to need to fill the online form of IQAS.
I will be thankful to all in advance whoever answers my doubt and guide me.

Thank you very much for starting this topic. This has helped me a lot getting required information. Based on collective knowledge of members in this topic I have successfully received ECA evaluation of BHMS degree from IQAS for my wife. Although physical copy is yet to be received online application shows evaluation complete and it translates to Bachelors degree with focus in Homeopathic medicine and surgery.

Thanks again.

Dear Dr. Saajan,

I have completed my BHMS from MUHS in 2009. My husband is the primary applicant and currently our CRS score is 462. After I applied for the ECA at WES, I read on several forums that WES does not provide BHMS any Canadian education equivalence and that put us in a shock.

I have just joined this forum and read your post about WES considering BHMS and that is great news. My WES ECA is going to be completed by December 2nd.

With your successful ECA from WES, are you considered as a bachelor’s degree holder in the express entry system? If not, please let me know what education level you stand in the express entry system. And, should I as a BHMS bachelor’s degree holder also remain hopeful to receive a similar Canadian Equivalency Summary?

Please do revert as soon as possible; I hope you can understand how crucial my ECA is going to be in our case. If I am considered as a bachelor’s degree holder, our score will be 470 and for sure that will get us an ITA.

The WES had written under my credentials as “4 years of post secondary education with a focus in homeopathic medicine and surgery” which as per immigration lawyers is not a proper definition as they dint used the word BACHELORS anywhere,and i had mailed WES as well about this and they had replied by saying that “since Canadian education system doesn’t have any homeopathic degree or certificate course in their curriculum therefore WES cant compare it to a bachelor degree in canada(or they cant use the word BACHELOR), so i went on with the IQAS to do my credentials, and it took 5 months time peroid(date of submission of transcripts 31 may 2019 and credential certificate recieved on 6th nov 2019) and great news IQAS did my credentials and replied with a positive ECA with proper mention " canadian equivalency to a bachelor’s degree in homeopathic medicne and surgery” so yeah IQAS is the real deal, best wishes

Thanks Dr. Sajan.

According to your immigration lawyer, if not as a bachelors degree holder, are you able to claim any points in the express entry system with whatever ECA you received from the WES?

Lastly, is it possible for you to upload your complete WES ECA report (you can shade your personal information)?; I would like to check with our lawyer for my case. Since I am not a primary applicant, having a bachelor’s degree is not mandatory for me and if I get a similar ECA as yours from WES and if that fetches me any points ranging in between that of 12th standard and a bachelor’s degree, it would still help us a lot.

And congratulations for your IQAS ECA.

Thanks Dr. Saajan.

  1. On your WES ECA report, under the CREDENTIAL ANALYSIS of BHMS, is there any remark such as “The credential is not comparable to a completed Canadian education credential”?

  2. According to your immigration lawyer, if not as a bachelors degree holder, are you able to claim any points in the express entry system with whatever ECA you received from the WES?

Happy to hear that IQAS is recognising bhms, I completed bhms from NTR university please let me know if NTR university is listed under WES

Hi all,

This is my first message in this community. I did my BHMS from University of Kerala and MD (Homoeopathy) in Organon of Medicine from West Bengal University of Health Sciences. I submitted my documents and transcripts to IQAS in September 2019 and received my ECA today. According to IQAS, BHMS is equivalent to Bachelor’s in Canada. However, no equivalency was mentioned for MD (Homoeopathy), presumably because there is no equivalent for it in Canada. This is my ECA from IQAS -

Hi Guys! Has anyone got education an evaluation equivalent to masters in homeopathy for their BHMS and MD Degrees from any agency for Canada?
Thank you.
