CREDIT TOWARDS DEGREES AND DIPLOMAS

NOTE: Students are advised that JCU’s rules and policies relating to credit transfer towards degrees and diplomas will be reviewed during 2007, and the term “credit” will be replaced with the term “advanced standing”. In the meantime, the two terms may be used interchangeably.

The faculties, in line with the Australian Vice-Chancellors’ Committee’s guidelines, are able to offer advanced standing, i.e. credit, to students who have completed subjects in other programs at James Cook University or at other tertiary institutions, or have completed other forms of prior learning.

This credit takes various forms. The terms used are based on Credit Transfer Principles: Guidelines on the Recognition of Prior Learning approved by the AVCC, December 1993.

The terms used are:

CREDIT is recognition granted towards meeting the requirements of an award course.

CREDIT TRANSFER is the granting of credit/advanced status by the faculties to students/candidates on the basis of previous formal study at another university.

BLOCK CREDIT is credit given in the form of exemption from a period of study, e.g. credit given for one teaching period.

SPECIFIED CREDIT is granted in the form of exemption from the requirements of a particular subject.

UNSPECIFIED CREDIT is granted for previous learning for which there is no precise equivalent in this University.

RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING (RPL) is credit granted for learning outside formal study in this or other Universities.

RULES FOR CREDIT TO THE BACHELOR DEGREES

Subject to rules 2 to 5 below, the Pro-Vice-Chancellor may grant a candidate for a degree offered by the faculty, credit within the limits described below:

  • 1.

    • a candidate who, having completed any other degree or diploma in this University, enrols for a Bachelor degree in the faculty may be granted credit for subjects passed when qualifying for the award of the other degree or diploma. The maximum credit allowed for such subjects shall be 48 credit points towards a three year degree and 66 credit points towards a four year degree. In granting such credit the Pro-Vice-Chancellor shall not, except in exceptional circumstances approved by the faculty, allow credit, in the case of a three year degree, for more than 9 credit points at level 3 nor, in the case of a four year degree, more than 18 credit points in total at level 3 or level 4;

    • a candidate who, having partially completed another degree or diploma in this University, enrols for a Bachelor degree in the faculty may be granted credit for such subjects passed while so enrolled as would have been credited towards a degree of the faculty had the student been enrolled for that degree at that time;

    • a candidate who, having completed all or a portion of a degree or diploma in another university or institution of higher education, enrols for a Bachelor degree in the faculty may be granted specified or unspecified credit for subjects equivalent to those passed at the other university or institution of higher education. The maximum credit allowed for such subjects shall be 48 credit points towards a three year degree or 64 credit points towards a four year degree. In granting such credit the Pro-Vice-Chancellor shall not, except in exceptional circumstances approved by the faculty, allow credit, in the case of a three year degree, for more than 8 credit points at level 3 nor, in the case of a four year degree, more than 16 credit points in total at level 3 or level 4.

  • 2. Credit transfer will only be approved if the following conditions are met:

    • the subjects which were successfully completed at another recognised university or institution of higher education and for which credit is sought must be assessed by the Pro-Vice-Chancellor as equivalent in standard to subjects offered in this University;

    • a candidate may not undertake in subsequent degree studies, subjects that are substantially similar to subjects credited pursuant to Rule 1;

    • the Award Requirements applicable to particular Bachelor degrees of the faculty (especially the Award Requirements governing prescribed subjects and credit point structures), must be met, and the degree, when completed, must satisfy the appropriate Award Requirements;

    • the Pro-Vice-Chancellor must be satisfied that the degree, when completed, will constitute a coherent whole.

  • 3. Credit will not be granted for subjects completed more than 10 years prior to enrolment in the faculty degree.

  • 4. Candidates applying for credit transfer must submit a certified copy of their prior Academic Record/s showing the results achieved in all subjects for which credit transfer is sought, together with such additional information as the Pro-Vice-Chancellor may require to determine the sufficiency and standing of such subjects for credit transfer purposes. All material is to be submitted to the Pro-Vice-Chancellor through Student Administration at the University.

  • 5. Specific requirements for credit transfer towards particular Bachelor degrees of the faculty (if any) take precedence over the general rules outlined above.

CREDIT TRANSFER FOR RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING

  • 1. Prior Learning may be recognised by an applicant demonstrating equivalent learning/knowledge by one or more of the following methods:

    • certificates of competency or attendance from industry recognised courses;

    • observation of workplace skills and practice by a qualified observer designated by the University;

    • completion of some or all of the assessment requirements (or equivalent) as may be specified by the lecturer-in-charge of the subject for which credit is sought;

    • interview by expert panel, including one impartial expert in the area;

    • fully documented portfolio of work completed while practising in industry. The authenticity of all work must be certified in writing by a supervisor or by the person/s responsible for commissioning the work.

  • 2. The maximum credit available as a result of RPL shall not exceed 24 credit points towards a three year degree, or 33 credit points towards a four year degree.

    • Notwithstanding clause 2 above, existing University policy regarding the total number of credit points available towards particular degree programs shall not be exceeded as a result of RPL, or through a combination of RPL and credit given for previous study at a recognised tertiary institution.

    • Notwithstanding clause 2 above, candidates for a degree must complete or obtain credit for all core subjects and satisfy all degree requirements before being admitted to the degree.

    • Any costs resulting from workplace observation or interview panels shall be borne by the applicant for RPL.

RULES FOR CREDIT TO DIPLOMAS AND ADVANCED DIPLOMAS

Normally the award of credit towards Diplomas and Advanced Diplomas in the faculties is decided in accordance with the principles outlined in relation to the Bachelor degrees. Variations in requirements for a particular Diploma are outlined below.

DEGREE AND DIPLOMA SPECIFIC POLICIES

These apply in addition to those detailed above.

Bachelor of Psychology

Credit cannot be given for Psychology subjects completed over ten years prior to enrolment in the BPsych degree.

Bachelor of Social Work; Bachelor of Community Welfare

The Faculty of Arts, Education and Social Sciences has agreed to comply with the AVCC Credit Transfer Project Pilot Scheme Guidelines (1995-6) for credit towards Bachelor of Social Work and Bachelor of Social (Community) Welfare degrees. Accordingly the faculty will grant:

  • for candidates holding a completed Associate Diploma in a related field of study and admitted to a four-year Social work degree program, a minimum credit of 25% of that degree program;

  • for candidates holding a completed Associate Diploma in a related field of study and admitted to a three-year Social (Community) Welfare degree program, a minimum credit of 33% of that degree program;

  • for candidates having completed two years of a three-year Social (Community) Welfare degree program, or holding a completed three year Social (Community) Welfare degree, and admitted to a four-year Social Work degree program for credit, credit will be granted at a minimum of 25%, and normally in the range of 25-50%, of that degree program;

  • for candidates having completed one year of a three-year Social (Community) Welfare degree program and admitted to a four year Social Work degree program, a minimum credit of 25% of the degree program;

  • for candidates having completed two years of a four-year Social Work degree program and admitted to a three year Social (Community) Welfare degree program, a minimum credit of 33% of that degree program;

  • for candidates transferring between four year Social Work degree programs, full equivalent credit;

  • for candidates transferring between three year Social (Community) Welfare degree programs, full equivalent credit.

In these guidelines:

A reference to an Associate Diploma in related field of study means an Associate Diploma program accredited by the Australian Institute of Welfare and Community Workers or recognised by the university granting the credit.

A reference to a three-year Social (Community) Welfare degree means a degree program accredited by the Australian Institute of Welfare and community workers.

A reference to a four-year Social Work degree means a degree program approved by the Australian Association of Social Workers.

In the Faculty of Arts, Education and Social Sciences:

The granting of credit is subject to University requirements for admission.

The granting of credit is subject to faculty policy concerning the minimum amount of study required at James Cook University before a qualification can be awarded.

The faculty may accept, for the purposes of granting credit, associate diplomas and degree programs in addition to those contained within the above definitions.

It should be noted that the Australian Association of Social Workers does not permit credit to be given for field education undertaken in non-social work programs.

Candidates in the Bachelor of Community Welfare degree may apply to the Head of School of Social Work and Community Welfare for exemption from some of the field placement requirements on the basis of recognition of prior learning and completion of a challenge test.

CREDIT TO THE BACHELOR OF EDUCATION DEGREES

  • A. CREDIT TRANSFER is accepted for subjects completed successfully at other Australian universities and many overseas universities if they are considered to be equivalent in standing to the Faculty’s BEd (Professional Development) subjects. To obtain such credit, students must submit a certified copy of the results of such subjects along with sufficient information to determine the standing of such subjects. Credit granted will be identified as specified or unspecified credit.

  • B. RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING

    B. There is a range of ways in which recognition is given for prior learning.

    • BLOCK CREDIT of one teaching period is given for professional experience to two-year trained teachers who enrol to complete the Bachelor of Education (Professional Development) degree. Consequently, such students have to complete 36 credit points to be awarded the degree.

    • SPECIFIED OR UNSPECIFIED CREDIT will be granted for professional development courses completed by teachers. Because there are many types of such courses, different courses are considered differently. The way each type of course is considered is:

      • The majority of courses offered by outside bodies:

        SPECIFIED OR UNSPECIFIED CREDIT can be obtained for these professional development courses by teachers enrolled in a Bachelor of Education (Professional Development) degree. To obtain credit, a teacher will submit to the faculty the work produced on the course. The faculty will arrange for assessment of this work and determine the appropriate credit based on this assessment.

        There will be an assessment fee (currently $50) for this process which must be paid at the time of submission of the work. The level of these fees may be reviewed by the faculty from time to time.

      • Courses which are conducted within the quality control mechanisms of the faculty:

        All professional development courses developed in conjunction with the faculty and which are subject to the quality control mechanisms of the faculty will declare to prospective participants the credit available for the courses.

        In all cases, credit will be subject to the successful completion of assessment requirements of the course. The certificate of completion for the course must be submitted to obtain credit. The faculty keeps no records of these professional development courses so lost certificates cannot be reissued.

      • Outside courses with rigorous and demonstrable quality control mechanisms:

        Occasionally, organisations other than the faculty provide courses with rigorous and demonstrable quality control mechanisms. In such cases, through prior consultation with the faculty, indications of credit available for the course will be provided.

  • C. RECOGNITION OF CURRENT COMPETENCE

    C. Recognition of Current Competence (RCC) may apply where a teacher education student can clearly demonstrate outcomes relevant to a specific professional experience component of a Bachelor of Education program. If these outcomes can be demonstrated, the preservice teacher will be granted advanced standing for part of the requisite 100 days of the professional experience requirement. Demonstration of attainment of outcomes may be in the form of professional experience reports from other institutions and/or statements of teaching or related service.

    C. The reports and/or statements provided should include information on:

    • the type of teaching and/or related service;

    • the length and recency of teaching and/or related service;

    • the learners’ characteristics, including age range and gender;

    • the subject areas taught;

    • the level of teaching responsibility, including the level of supervision by others;

    • the qualifications of, and reports from the person(s) taking a supervisory role; and

    • how the teaching and/or related service matches with the outcomes of the particular professional experience component(s) for which advanced standing is being requested.

    C. Evidence should be indicated on, or attached to, a Recognition of Current Competence application form available at the faculty office and submitted to that office. Applications will be assessed jointly by the Associate Dean of Education and the Director of Professional Experience in terms of the August 2002 Board of Teacher Registration Guidelines for Preservice Teacher Education programs. Recognition of current competence, if approved, will be indicated on the student’s academic record that can be viewed on Students Online.

AMOUNT OF CREDIT GRANTED

The maximum amount of credit granted towards the degree will be 50% of the credit points required for the degree.

The maximum credit allowable for professional development courses within the degree is one subject except where one course is judged to be larger in size than one faculty subject.

Credit will be granted for professional development courses smaller than a faculty subject. However, no credit will be given for courses smaller than 2 credit points.

  • 2.4 the Pro-Vice-Chancellor must be satisfied that the degree, when completed, will constitute a coherent whole.

  • 2.5 where a student applies to transfer from one degree to another credit will be only approved in accordance with the requirements of the degree into which the student is transferring. This may result in loss of credit for some subjects already passed.

3. Specific requirements regarding credit for a particular bachelor degree of the faculties take precedence over the above general rules.

4. Credit will not generally be granted for subjects completed more than 10 years prior to enrolment, however specific requirements regarding credit for prior study towards a particular bachelor degree, as outlined in the Award Requirements, will take precedence over the above general rules.

5. Candidates applying for credit transfer must submit a certified copy of their prior Academic Record(s) showing the results achieved in all subjects for which credit transfer is sought, together with such additional information as the Pro-Vice-Chancellor may require to determine the sufficiency and standing of such subjects for credit transfer purposes.
