Credit transfer and recognition of prior learning

At Macquarie we recognise that you may have had previous learning experiences. Depending on the type of experience, you could get credit for all of your hard work, reducing the duration of your course and freeing you up to get to your future sooner.

We’ll review your previous learning experiences – whether they’re formal qualifications or other types of non-formal and informal learning such as work experience or community involvement.

Other scholarships recognise leadership or voluntary experiences, or sporting achievement.
