Advanced Standing

National Institute for Christian Education is committed to the dual principles of maintaining the highest academic standards that are at least equivalent to those in current Australian public universities, while providing the shortest possible route to the desired award by the recognition of prior learning and advanced standing wherever this is consistent with these standards.

Advanced Standing (AS)

Students may be eligible for Advanced Standing when they have completed subjects from another accredited postgraduate award (this award cannot be part of the prerequisite requirements for entry e.g. BEd).

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

Students may also be eligible for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) when they have previous professional experience and non-accredited learning that can be documented and demonstrates equivalence with a subject..

No RPL or AS will be recognised for work or study completed over 10 years ago. RPL or AS should be applied for at the time of admission to a course. Click here for RPL/AS application form. Before making an application please be sure to read the Credit Transfer and Recognition of Prior Learning Policy
