Things to consider

  • CRL can be considered for successfully completed units, courses and relevant work experience you have undertaken in the previous 10 years. This time-frame may be shorter where professional accreditation standards must be met, or where there have been significant changes in your field of study.
  • Units studied at undergraduate level are not typically considered for CRL at postgraduate level.
  • Certificate IV qualifications will be considered for enabling or bridging courses only.
  • You must complete either one third or 200 credits of a Curtin course.
  • Information about the policies and procedures related to CRL assessment and appealing a CRL assessment outcome can be found in the credit for recognised learning manual.
