Credit and RPL

Recognition of previous qualifications

All of BBI's courses are nested, meaning that they build on one another, ensuring that students receive credit for courses previously accomplished. Students who have completed relevant study elsewhere may also be eligible for credit which would reduce the overall length of their course with BBI. 

Each postgraduate course has its own criteria for credit and Recognition of Prior Learning, please review the course you are interested in, under Higher Education.

If you would like to apply for Recognition of Prior Learning Policy, please click here to learn more.

If you wish to apply for credit, please read the Credit Transfer Policy and Procedure

You will need to complete the Application for Credit – RPL form

4-year credit rule extended to 10 years

The general rule in relation to the application for credit into postgraduate study at most tertiary institutions across Australia is based on having completed studies within the past four years.

In response to sector needs, BBI has introduced a 10-year rule for recognition of prior study, which may articulate into BBI’s courses, subject to our credit and RPL policy. Those, whose study period may fall outside the 10-year rule, will be considered on a case by case basis.

If you have completed a Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma or Masters in a Theology related course, anytime between 2007 and 2017, at any Australian tertiary institution, you may be eligible for credit, reducing the total number of units which must be completed to attain the qualification.
