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 may be awarded for prior learning?

Search for Advanced StandingTo identify how much credit transfer may apply, use the Advanced Standing Search.

Remember, credit for prior learning can be awarded via the Advanced Standing process for:

  • completed or partially completed studies, attained through an accredited course (formal learning) or non-accredited course, seminar or professional development program (non-formal learning); and/or
  • experience and expertise, gained through professional standing, paid or voluntary work or community, domestic or leisure activities (in-formal learning).

What if my prior study or industry experience is not listed?

Can't fine what you are looking for?

If you believe that your prior learning is similar to one or more units (subjects) within an SCU course, you should still apply for Advanced Standing.

How are entry and credit arrangements 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 or postgraduate courses.

For further details view Articulation information for organisations.
