Students may apply for exemptions for prior learning, which includes formal study undertaken in recognised tertiary institutions in Australia, including universities, colleges, TAFE and other post-secondary education institutions.
Overseas institutions will be recognised to the extent to which they are considered to be equivalent to particular types of Australian institutions. Consideration may extend under certain conditions, to programs provided by recognised professional bodies, employers and other authorities, where appropriate certification is available, and demonstrable expertise and relevant experience.
Credit will normally be granted where relevant studies (or other demonstrated learning achievement) have been completed within 10 years.
A maximum of four exemptions may be granted.
Students must enrol and successfully complete all remaining MIBT units awarded for the Certificate or Diploma.
Diploma Students - Students enrolling in an MIBT Diploma course and wish to apply for Exemptions must complete the following:
Certificate Students - Students enrolling in the Certificate IV in Tertiary Preparation Program who wish to apply for Recognition of Prior Learning must complete the following:
Applications can be submitted before you commence your MIBT course or within your first trimester of study. No applications will be accepted in a subsequent trimester. If you are applying for exemptions in your first trimester, then you must not enrol in those unit/s as your application will not be approved.
Applications must then be submitted to MIBT by post, email or fax. If sending by email or fax, the originals or certified copies of the originals must also be posted.
