Advanced Standing - Credit for prior study

Advanced Standing is the recognition of previous study or learning that can be counted towards a qualification. This can reduce the number of subjects required to complete your course. The amount of credit received depends on the level and relevance of your previous tertiary study and the number of subjects completed. The University will designate courses where there is only admission into Year 1 of the course. In these cases, there is limited advanced standing. More information
