Articulation models

Southern Cross University has a range of articulation modes that recognise the existing knowledge and skills of students and workers, including:

  • National or regional Credit Linkages that are NOT subject to a formal agreement and apply to any person holding the named accredited course/qualification or occupation, regardless of which institute issued the award/qualification or statement of service; or
  • Institute specific Pathways that may require formal Agreement and apply only to a person holding the named non-accredited or accredited course/qualification or occupation, issued by the named articulation partner.  

We also cooperate to develop Reciprocal (reverse) Pathways supporting the recognition and mobility of current Southern Cross students and graduates into Vocational Education and Training (VET) or specialist Higher Education (HE) qualifications offered by other institutes.

You'll find definitions for these terms and more in the Glossary of Terminology.
