Credit for Recognised Learning (CRL) or Exemptions are given based on previous studies and are related to the major chosen. Units passed in previous studies that do not equate to a Curtin unit will not be exempted. No exemptions will be granted if the units undertaken in previous studies are not units relevant to the course nominated. To be considered for CRL, you are required to lodge certified copies of the transcripts and award certificate (if the course is completed) for previous studies. These documents will be assessed to determine whether CRL will be granted. Depending upon the institution where you completed previous studies, you may need to provide the course syllabus and unit outlines.
CRL can be assessed as part of your course application and noted in your Letter of Offer for your course.
