    Credit for Previous Study

    If you have already studied at university level or have significant relevant work experience, you can apply for credit towards your ACU course.

You can apply for credit towards your ACU course by completing an Application for Credit / Recognition of Prior Learning form. The form should be submitted no later than the census date in the first semester of your enrolment in the course. The census date is the last day you can make changes to your student enrolment before you become committed to your fees.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Where do I find the units (subjects) for each major and minor? The section of the guide under Unit Information has a link to a full list of units connected to your degree.
