AQF Vocational Qualification Credit Linkages
Southern Cross University (SCU) provides a range of vocational education and training (VET) pathways to university from some Nationally accredited courses and qualifications within discipline related Australian Training Packages.
These AQF VET Qualification Credit Linkages (AQF VET linkages) facilitate entry (admission) and/or credit for prior learning (advanced standing) into a range of SCU courses for any person holding the specific accredited course award or qualification, regardless of how or where the learning occurred or which Australian Registered Training Organisation (RTO) issued the qualification.
AQF VET linkages apply for Australian, New Zealand and international graduates of an Australian RTO, even if the learning occurred overseas (off-shore), or online, by distance education.
Where the SCU course displays a CRICOS course code, AQF VET linkages also apply to international graduates of an Australian RTO where the learning occurred in Australia (on-shore).
What does this mean for Australian RTOs?
VET Qualification Credit Linkages can be actively marketed and promoted as a pathway to University by any Australian RTO that has one or more of the VET courses/qualifications on their scope of registration that is approved for linkage by SCU.
