Recognition of prior learning
Deakin 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 with Deakin, 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 with Deakin.
You can also refer to the Recognition of Prior Learning Page which outlines the credit that may be granted towards a Deakin degree and how to apply for credit.
Recognition of Prior Learning may be granted to applicants based on prior studies and/or equivalent industry experience.or more information on the Admission Criteria and Selection Policy visit The Guide.
