Pathways and Advanced Standing

Your University Pathway

The course or series of courses you choose will be influenced by your current circumstances, personal and career goals and other factors such as your past academic performance, SCU course entry requirements and any amount of credit for prior learning you might be entitled to receive.

These factors vary from person to person but, no matter what your circumstances, Southern Cross University (SCU) can help you to:

How much credit is awarded for prior learning?

To identify how much credit applies for prior study, Search for Advanced StandingAustralian or New Zealand future students can Search for Advanced Standing.

International future students should instead view the PDF International Qualification Linkages and Pathways document.

Open the document, Select 'CTRL + F'. Type the prior or SCU course name in the search window and select 'Enter'

What if my prior study is not listed?

If your prior study is not listed, but is similar to one or more units (subjects) within an SCU course, you should still apply for Advanced Standing.

Advanced Standing can also be awarded in recognition of:

  • partially completed studies (formal and non-formal learning); or
  • learning resulting from work, social, family, hobby or leisure activities (in-formal learning).

How are pathways and linkages established?

The University cooperates with educational and industry organisations in Australia and overseas to develop and promote articulation arrangements (pathways and linkages) that facilitate entry and/or credit into SCU undergraduate and Postgraduate courses.
