Am I eligible to receive credit for prior learning?
The University aims to provide students with as much credit as possible for approved prior study or informal learning which exceeds the normal entrance requirements for the course and is within the constraints of the course regulations. Students are required to complete a minimum of one-third of the course at Deakin University, or four credit points, whichever is the greater. In the case of certificates, including graduate certificates, a minimum of two credit points within the course must be completed at Deakin.
You can also refer to the Credit for Prior Learning System which outlines the credit that may be granted towards a Deakin University degree and how to apply for credit.
If you have completed study at other institutions and wish to gain credit at Deakin University you can refer to the Deakin International credit for prior learning web page which lists the countries, universities and courses and the credit that may be granted towards a Deakin University degree.
Credit for prior learning of up to four credit points may be granted to applicants who hold a Graduate Certificate of Information Technology (or its equivalent). Candidates must provide sufficient documentary evidence concerning the units for which credit for prior learning is sought, including official transcripts and unit descriptions. Advanced standing granted as part of admission to the Graduate Diploma of Information Technology is not transferable to the Graduate Certificate of Information Technology.
