Maximum Credit Allowed from Previous University Studies
Credit Recognition from previous university studies may be considered under two categories:
- an equivalent to a UTS Business School subject; OR
- an unspecified elective (where applicable).
Credit Recognition will only be granted for subjects deemed equivalent to Business School subjects in relation to duration, content, assessments and conceptual development. Credit points or equivalent will also be taken into account. The Business School decision is final and there is no recourse for appeal.
Credit Recognition Application Rules for Students with Previous University Studies
- Completed subjects from Australian tertiary institutions or a degree from international institutions endorsed by NOOSR (must be equivalent to an Australian Bachelor degree in accordance with Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) guidelines can be used to apply for Credit Recognition.
- Credit Recognition will not be granted for subjects deemed to be taken more than 10 years prior to the student's first semester of study in the relevant Business School course.
- Subjects submitted for Credit Recognition must be successfully completed at a level equivalent to UTS; however, this may vary for international or overseas institutions. Conceded passes will not be considered at anytime.
- Credit Recognition granted CANNOT be used as a subject substitution.
- Subjects from prior studies can only be used once and not for multiple Credit Recognition.
- Language subjects will only be considered for unspecified electives.
- When applying for Credit Recognition at UTS Business School, a combination of up to four (4) subjects only from an external institution may be used for one UTS Business subject.
- Students should NOT enrol in subjects for which they are seeking Credit Recognition. Due to the volume of Credit Recognition applications received, Credit Recognition entitlements cannot be determined for all students prior to the deadline for adding and deleting subjects in the student's first semester of study. It is therefore necessary to ensure you are enrolled in subjects in which you can continue for the entire semester, irrespective of Credit Recognition outcomes. Should applicants subsequently be unsuccessful in obtaining Credit Recognition for a subject in which they have NOT enrolled in their first semester of study, this subject will have to be undertaken in a later semester.
- Students should first compare the subject descriptions from previous study with the subject descriptions in the UTS:Handbook prior to applying.
- Students may re-apply if an application is refused but ONLY if new information is provided.
