When you apply to study at CSU, you may be eligible to receive credit as recognition of your prior learning for previous study and/or work experience.

Receive credit as recognition for your prior learning = less cost + less time

Getting into uni isn't just about your marks at school. You can explore our range of available credit as recognition of your prior learning and pathways to help you get a degree, even if you don't get into your preferred course straight away.

You can select CSU courses that you’re interested in and explore available credit and pathways towards them. This can also be useful if you’re thinking of transferring your course from another institution.

We recognise and award credit for your prior learning. Enter your prior learning to explore which credit options or pathways might be relevant to you.

On this site you can find credit and pathway options to CSU that we have already assessed as recognition for prior learning. If you don’t find any suitable results, we may still have available options that apply to you.

Where credit points are indicated it assumes articulation (guaranteed entry based on course availability) into the relevant CSU course with the potential of attracting the credit indicated. Credit does not apply for qualifications awarded on the basis of recognition for prior learning (RPL). Minimum duration for study may also be required.

Refer to our minimum entry requirements and CSU's credit rule policy for further details and limitations on maximum credit allowed or contact us.

Pathways and available credit indicate recognition of prior learning as previously assessed by CSU. The information on this site is indicative only and is not an offer or contract. All arrangements for approved recognition of prior learning remain subject to CSU's rules, policies and procedures. Changes in pathways and available credit may occur at any time without notice, including as a result of changes to agreements with CSU's pathway program partners or changes to CSU's courses or other relevant circumstances. CSU retains the discretion not to accept an application for recognition of prior learning, or to make an alternative offer of recognition that maximises an applicant's credit, having regard to any unique details of prior learning that CSU considers relevant.
