Credit Transfer and Recognition of Prior Learning

Credit transfer (CT) is defined in the AQF as follows:

  • Credit transfer is a process that provides students with agreed and consistent credit outcomes for components of a qualification based on identified equivalence in content and learning outcomes between matched qualifications.

Recognition of prior learning (RPL) is defined in the AQF as follows:

  • Recognition of prior learning is an assessment process that involves assessment of an individual’s relevant prior learning (including formal, informal and non-formal learning) to determine the credit outcomes of an individual application for credit.

This is underpinned by the AQF definition of credit as follows:

  • Credit is the value assigned for the recognition of equivalence in content and learning outcomes between different types of learning and/or qualifications.
  • Credit reduces the amount of learning required to achieve a qualification and may be through credit transfer, articulation, recognition of prior learning or advanced standing.

For further CT information visit: https://www.aqf.edu.au/sites/aqf/files/credit-transfer-explanation.pdf.

For further RPL information visit: https://www.aqf.edu.au/sites/aqf/files/rpl-explanation.pdf.
