Pathways to further study

Pathways provide an entry option into postgraduate courses based on your individual situation.

Most of our coursework programs have a ‘nested’ qualification structure, providing flexible entry and exit points. You might like to start modestly and build on each qualification as you go. Start with a graduate certificate, move to a graduate diploma and then on to a master degree.

If you have to withdraw from your course early, you could still exit with a formal qualification that recognises your work done to date.

And we may be able to recognise prior skills, experience and study, so that you can gain credit towards your course.

Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL)

If you have on-the-job experience, informal or employer-based training, you may be eligible to apply for Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL). APEL acts as credit towards a qualification to ensure you aren’t training in skills you already have.

For more details on APEL, log on to http://www.mqa.gov.my/portal2012/red/en/apel.cfm

Credit transfer

If you are switching university and would like credit for previous studies, you can apply for a credit transfer. If your application for credit is accepted, you will still be required to complete a minimum of your postgraduate course at Swinburne Sarawak.

Please follow the steps on the Apply section.

You will need to provide certified copies of unit outlines and results certificates when you submit your application.
