Yes, but only for our part-time programs.
Applications for credits and substitutions are required the time of application for admission via the relevant section on the application form. Applicants are required to provide all the following documents relating to your previous course:
- an academic transcript (original or certified copy)
- an explanation of what the results mean (usually found on the back of the transcript)
- an extract from the handbook, detailing the course structure and credit points (or equivalent weighting of the course)
- a unit syllabus including the assessment requirements for each unit you're seeking credit for.
Credit is available only if the student has commenced or completed comparable postgraduate study elsewhere and if the subject material studied elsewhere is comparable in form and content to a core subject in the Melbourne Business School. The maximum amount of credit that can be applied towards a program is 25%.
A substitution is where a student moves out of a core subject and replaces it with an elective subject. A substitution does not reduce the number of subjects required to complete the program and is usually offered where a student has professional qualifications or has adequately covered the subject material at undergraduate level.
If an applicant is successful, the number of credits or substitution granted will be outlined in the letter of offer.
