* Accredited programs (completed or partially completed)
taught as part of a degree, diploma, or university certificate course at an Australian
University or TAFE institution may be considered for Credit for Prior Learning. Credit for Prior Learning towards a postgraduate award can only be granted for work previously completed at an equivalent level.
* Learning acquired in a relevant context, such as in a course offered by an overseas university, a professional body, a University or TAFE staff development unit, or private enterprise may be considered for Credit for Prior Learning. Such credentialed programs will normally be structured courses for which detailed content descriptions are available.
Learning acquired through work experience or through life experience where that experience is recorded in documentation supplied by the applicant to the University may be considered for Credit for Prior Learning.
In each of these circumstances, decisions will be made on the basis of the course content or experience being sufficiently similar in terms of learning outcomes and standards, such that studying the specified unit or undertaking the specified assessment task would require the expected level of academic or experiential undertaking.
Credit for Prior Learning will not normally be granted for studies or other learning completed more than five years prior to application.
Normally, applicants must apply for Credit for Prior Learning prior to enrolment.
All applicants seeking Credit for Prior Learning must apply in writing in the required form to the Co-ordinator of the Graduate Certificate of Higher Education, Faculty of Education, Deakin University.
Applicants must provide satisfactory documentary evidence in support of their application. Assessment of applications for Credit for Prior Learning on the basis of a completed or partially completed course will be based on certified transcripts and documents only. For applications for Credit for Prior Learning for un-credentialed prior learning the onus is on the applicant to provide appropriate evidence that is relevant to the proposed course of study. Appropriate evidence of un-credentialled learning would normally include evidence of duration, course content and any formal assessment, and satisfactory completion in the form of a certificate of completion or other written evidence provided by the course provider.
Applicants will receive a written notification of the decision, normally with three weeks of the receipt of their application by the Faculty.
The Course Co-ordinator shall keep a register of all applications, including reasons why individual applications were or were not successful.
