- Should you wish to apply for Course Credit?
Course Credit, or Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), may be granted towards the Professional Certificate and will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. A maximum of 16 credit points will be granted for any one individual.
The Course Credit application is a process that involves assessment of your relevant prior learning (including formal, informal and non-formal learning) to determine the credit outcomes of an individual application for credit.
Course Credit will only apply if you have successfully completed previous studies that closely match the content and learning outcomes of units from this course. Prior study of undergraduate units within an undergraduate course is not sufficient.
