Have you passed equivalent subjects elsewhere?
Referred to as ‘recognition of prior learning (RPL)’, ‘credit transfers’, or ‘advanced standing’, applicants who can demonstrate successful completion of equivalent subjects at a recognised institution may be eligible for credit towards study at ICMS. (Note: exemptions are only granted for subjects studied at diploma or undergraduate level.)
Similarly, applicants who can demonstrate competence attained through formal training, work experience and/or life experience may also be eligible for advanced standing in an ICMS course.
Credit | Recognition of prior learning | Advanced standing | Articulation agreements
- ‘Credit’ – a benefit provided to a student by waiving one of more of the normal requirements for competition of a course of study.
- ‘Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)’ – a process through which eligibility for award of credit is assessed, through formal, informal and non-formal learning
- ‘Advanced Standing’ – a form of credit for any previous learning (Australian Qualifications Framework definition).
View ICMS Advanced Standing Policy and Procedures or contact contact [email protected] for further information.
- ‘Articulation Agreements’ – formal partnerships between at least two institutions of higher education. The goal is to create a seamless transfer for students. A number of articulation agreements exist between ICMS and external partner institutions whereby students completing a designated program of study at the partner institution can receive credit upon their commencement to a designated course at ICMS. Search below to find out if an agreement exists with your current place of study. If you can’t find your institution and would like to find out if you can receive credit for prior learning, contact [email protected].
