Credit for prior learning

The Southern Cross course or series of courses you choose will be influenced by your current circumstances, personal and career goals and other factors such as your past academic performance, Southern Cross course entry requirements and any amount of credit for prior learning you might be entitled to receive.

These factors vary from person to person but, no matter what your circumstances, we can help you to confidently plan your study and career path in advance by:

  • building a career profile based on your natural skills and talents; and
  • examining your study options;
  • estimating the amount of credit transfer that may apply for your prior learning; and
  • helping you to apply for Advanced Standing to receive credit for prior learning.
