Exemptions / Recognised Prior Learning (RPL)
Students may apply for credit transfer for prior learning (exemptions), which includes formal study undertaken in recognised tertiary institutions in Australia, including universities, colleges, TAFE and other post-secondary education institutions.
Overseas institutions will be recognised to the extent to which they are considered to be equivalent to particular types of Australian institutions. Under certain conditions consideration may extend to programs provided by recognised professional bodies, employers, and other authorities (where appropriate certification is available), as well as to demonstrable expertise and relevant experience.
Credit will normally be granted for prior learning where relevant studies (or other demonstrated learning achievement) have been completed.
Students applying for exemptions must complete the Exemptions Application Form. Applications should be submitted to NIC prior to enrolment. Applications can be sent by post, email or fax. If sending by email or fax, the originals or certified copies of the originals must also be posted.
