6. What are the eligibility criteria for the QSWP?
The QSWP operates on a points-based system, in which candidates must meet a points threshold to be eligible. This threshold is determined by a candidate's family situation - single applicants must obtain 49 points, while applicants including their spouse or common-law partner on their application must obtain 57 points. Points are granted for education, work experience, languages knowledge, family situation, and other criteria.
