Credit transfer means that you can apply to have previous study from another institution or another UNSW degree program recognised, and the credit transferred to your current degree program at UNSW. Credit transfer is also known as 'advanced standing'.
At undergraduate level credit transfer is generally recognition of prior study at a university or TAFE.
At postgraduate level it is generally recognition of prior postgraduate study at a university.
Note that credit transfer does not include
- Exemption, where a student is exempted from a specified compulsory course and instead is required to complete an unspecified course to the same unit of credit value, or
- Substitution, where a student completes a specified equivalent course in place of a specified compulsory course.
Further information about credit transfers at UNSW can be found on the UNSW Website.
