  2. Recognition of prior learning

    Learning as the result of work or life experience, self-tuition, hobby or leisure activities (i.e. informal learning) may be credited against your degree with us. Likewise for a structured course of learning that does not lead to an officially accredited qualification (i.e. non-formal learning). For further information about these types of learning, refer to our Credit Policy.

    Each application is assessed individually and your experience matched to the learning outcomes of the subjects covered in your course. All claimed work experience must be relevant to the qualification being applied for.

    Evidence to support an application for credit based on informal and/or non-formal learning includes:

    • letters from employers / references (on business letterhead)
    • curriculum vitae, and corroborating evidence
    • work documents/job statement and evidence of process
    • portfolios containing samples of work
    • interviews
    • presentations or practical demonstrations
    • challenge exam
    • performance review evidence
    • non-award professional development courses, and other non-AQF awards and certificates
    • recognition of merit, or industry awards

    Please note: standard entry requirements still apply. Entry requirements for Torrens University Australia courses can be accessed from our website.

    For more information on qualification upgrades, pathways, recognition of prior learning, and how to apply for course credit contact us or read our Credit Policy.
