Information for first year students – Semester 1 and 2, 2021
Student handbooks and 2021 course offerings
Being acknowledged for your prior study may reduce the duration of a course and means that you can avoid duplicating your learning.
You may be eligible for Advanced Standing (exemption with or without credit) towards a course offered by the University if you have undertaken previous learning that is relevant, current (completed within the previous 10 years), and meets the learning or competency outcomes of a unit or course offered by the University. Previous learning that satisfies these requirements might have been formal or informal.
The University applies the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) as the basis for reviewing applications for Advanced Standing in Vocational Education and Training (VET) or Higher Education courses.
Formal learning recognised for Advanced Standing
From first semester 2015, the School of Arts and Sciences will record units from other institutions which may be awarded as Advanced Standing based on providing evidence of successful completion of formal learning:
University of Notre Dame Australia
Unit Code Name of Unit or Course successfully completed Institution at which unit or course was undertaken Unit Code
Each application will be assessed individually and you are encouraged to discuss your previous learning with the School of Arts and Sciences prior to submitting a formal application for Advanced Standing.
