Study at VU

Credit for skills & past study

We are committed to recognising the wealth of knowledge you bring with you when you enrol at VU.

You can apply for credit in recognition of previous study, work skills and past experience via several methods. 

TAFE students can apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). This also includes Recognition of Current Competence (RCC) and credit transfer.

Higher education students can apply for Advanced standing.

Having your skills and study recognised can save you valuable time and money. If you have already studied a unit, or have had equivalent life experience, we believe you shouldn't have to attend a class to learn it all over again.

“I applied to do a bachelor degree, but was directed straight to the Master due to my more than seven years industry experience. The Master of Business (Supply Chain Management) has opened many doors of opportunity for me and I've recently moved into a new role as a National Logistics Manager.”
