Credit for Prior Learning

At CQUniversity, we recognise your skills and knowledge gained from prior learning and experience to help you gain entry into our courses. The advantage of credit for prior learning is that your skills will be formally acknowledged as part of a nationally recognised qualification which may reduce your study load.

This is perfect for anyone who is looking for increased opportunities when re-entering the workforce, gaining job promotions, changing careers, moving to a new industry, meeting industry regulations, or supporting your immigration application.

CQUniversity offers two pathways for students applying for credit for prior learning, depending on the course they are intending to study. Please refer to the section below that best suits your course admission.

Vet student applications

New to TAFE at CQUniversity? You may be eligible for RPL into your vocational education and training (VET) qualification. RPL, also known as Skills Assessment, is an assessment process that allows individuals to demonstrate their knowledge, skills and experience around a particular topic.

For more information about RPL and to apply, please visit our VET Student Applications page.

HE student applications

CQUniversity offers Higher Education students the opportunity to gain credit for prior learning into a wide range of undergraduate and post-graduate courses.

If you have previously studied at another university and are looking to transfer your credit for a previous qualification, or would like to apply for recognition of prior learning (formal/in-formal and non-formal learning), please visit our HE Student Applications page.
