Higher education transfers

Applicants who have attempted one semester but no more than two years of equivalent full-time study at higher education level will be considered on the basis of either their grade point average on those studies or any other qualification which meets the university's admission requirements, such as their Year 12 score.

Applicants who have attempted less than one semester of equivalent full-time study will not be considered on the basis of their grade point average, but will be considered on the basis of any other qualification which meets the university's admission criteria.

Applicants who have attempted a total of more than two years of equivalent full-time higher education study will only be considered on the basis of their grade point average in those studies.

Applicants precluded from a course at Flinders University or another university  will not normally be considered for admission into a course in the same discipline area.

Credit

If you are accepted into a related Flinders course you may be eleigible for credit. Credit means that we may recognise your previous studies and you won't have to complete ‘like' subjects at a university level.

This means you will spend less time finishing your degree and pay less HECS.

Credit can take the form of:

  • block credit – which is credit for whole stages of years of a course
  • specified credit – which is credit for certain subjects
  • unspecified credit – which is where credit is not given for particular subjects but is general credit given towards a course.

Refer to credit transfer at Flinders for further information.
