Application for Credit Transfer

Credit transfer will only be granted where a student is able to demonstrate that tertiary studies equivalent in content and depth to a Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Business (Specialisation) course have been completed. Students should examine the unit synopses in this handbook to determine the units from which they may be eligible to claim exemption. Refer to the Credit Transfer website at http://www.cqu.edu.au/credittransfer for further details.

Study Schedule

Students may determine their own schedule based upon credit transfers and personal study requirements. It is important to note that full-time students usually enrol in 4 units per term and part-time students usually enrol in 2 units per term.

Please note: students must check to see when and where a unit is offered before enrolling. See the unit availability section in this handbook for details.
