AQF Vocational Qualification Credit Linkages

SCU provides a range of vocational education and training (VET) pathways to university from some Nationally accredited VET courses and qualifications within discipline related Australian Training Packages.

These national VET Qualification Credit Linkages facilitate entry (admission) and/or credit for prior learning into a range of SCU courses for any person holding the specific qualification or accredited course award, regardless of which Australian Registered Training Organisation (RTO) issued the qualification.

Where the SCU course displays a CRICOS course code, these credit linkages also apply to international students who have successfully completed an Australian VET course or qualification with an Australian RTO.

VET Qualification Credit Linkages can be actively marketed and promoted as a pathway to SCU by any Australian TAFE or private RTO that has one or more of the VET qualifications/courses on their scope of registration that is approved for linkage by SCU.
