  • Pathways to Further Study
    • Because CIT offers nationally recognised qualifications accredited by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA), students can apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) to most universities within Australia and receive credit towards a degree, even where formal credit transfer arrangements are not in place; however, this is not a guarantee.
    • We advise you speak directly with your chosen university in relation to credit transfer, entry requirements and their application process.
