Credit for previous studies
The Faculty of Arts awards credit towards its degrees at Monash for subjects passed in completed or incomplete tertiary studies elsewhere provided that it is satisfied that the subjects for which credit is sought were substantially the same in content, contact hours and standard of assessment as those subjects from which exemption is sought.
The onus is upon the student to provide to relevant administrative officers on each campus full documentation concerning previous studies for which credit is sought together with an academic transcript of results. This should be in the form of handbook subject entries and those sections of the handbook setting out course structure; in some cases course outlines handed out in lectures may provide the same information.
This should preferably be done with the initial application for admission or, at the latest, at the time of enrolment. The minimum information required is number of years in course, level of subject in course, subject content and textbooks, number of contact hours per week, credit weighting of subject (percentage of year represented by subject), and method of assessment (number and length of assignments, number and length of examinations etc).
