If you have studied at TAFE QLD in the past five years, but your qualification isn't listed above, you still may be eligible for credit towards a UQ program.

Search the Credit Precedents Database for a list of courses that UQ has previously assessed for credit applications. 

If you’ve studied interstate at TAFE

Many Australian TAFE qualifications offer a credit transfer pathway to a UQ program. You may be eligible to receive credit towards a UQ program if you have:

  • earned a diploma or advanced diploma within the past five years, and
  • you are enrolled in a UQ program in the same or a directly relevant discipline area. 

How to apply for credit

If you are offered a place in a UQ program, please complete a Credit or Exemption application form (PDF, 369KB) and submit it to the relevant faculty.

Detailed information about applying for credit can be found in the Credit for Previous Studies and Recognised Prior Learning Policy.
