Certain CIT courses have formal credit transfer arrangements or “pathways” with a variety of Australia universities, meaning that students can receive recognition or ‘credit’ for studies completed at CIT and put this towards a degree at university.
The Australian Qualification Training Framework (AQTF) allows for the transfer of qualifications. Universities will consider recognising credit achieved during previous studies so students can use this credit towards a university qualification. Many of our international students choose this method of study to achieve their desired qualification at university.
If you are considering a pathway option from CIT it is important to make sure that you know how many credit points you will receive for successfully completing your course and whether or not these can by used towards a degree at university.
For example, students who have successfully complete the Advanced Diploma of Business at CIT and gain entry into Charles Sturt University will receive one and a half years credit towards the 3 year Bachelor of Business Studies. This pathway significantly reduces the duration of study for students who undertake this program.
