Credit and Exemptions

Your experience matters!

At AC, we take your experience seriously.

In such cases, you would be exempt from having to complete the coursework for these units.

There are three categories of learning we consider:

  1. Formal accredited – Successful completion of equivalent units through an accredited course at AC or other accredited educational institutions
  2. Formal unaccredited – Successful completion of structured but unaccredited courses, such as a professional development programme at your workplace or church
  3. Informal – Unstructured learning through professional or voluntary experience

To see if you qualify for credit and exemption:

  1. Go to the unit list of your course page on the AC website
  2. Click on the unit descriptions to see its description
