Aims and objectives
Courses at Swinburne can provide an alternative entry option, or pathway, into further TAFE, undergraduate and postgraduate courses if you don’t meet the entry requirements. For example, successful completion of a Swinburne diploma or advanced diploma provides credits that can advance you to later stages of an undergraduate degree. Certificate level studies can also pathway through to higher level TAFE studies. Whatever your situation, pathways ensure you gain the maximum benefit for previous study – whether at Swinburne or another institution. For more information, please visit the Pathways website.
Applicants with prior tertiary studies that satisfy part of the academic requirements of a course may be granted 'credit' and/or entry to the course with 'advanced standing'. University policies apply and applicants are assessed on a case-by-case basis. For further information refer to the Credit Transfer website.
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process where a student may be granted credit or partial credit towards a qualification in recognition of skills and knowledge gained through work experience, life experience and/or formal training. To learn more about RPL and how to apply, please visit the RPL website.
How to apply
Full-time (Semester 1) applications can also be made through the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC).
