Credit Requests

Bachelor of Nursing students who have studied nursing subjects at another institution at Bachelor level (Level 7) or above, or have completed relevant non-accredited study can request credit for UOW nursing subjects by completing a Credit for Prior Learning - Application form and submitting it to Student Central.

The links below provide Bachelor of Nursing subject information:

Enrolled Nurses looking to apply for second-year entry into the Bachelor of Nursing, need to provide their NMBA registration number and documentation supporting successful completion of the Diploma of Nursing HLT54115. No credit for prior learning application form is required. Please submit this documentation through to Student Central by 13 January 2023.

Postgraduate students who have studied postgraduate subjects at another institution and would like to request credit for those subjects against their current UOW degree OR have studied subjects under a different UOW degree and would like to request credit against their current UOW degree, should complete a Credit for Prior Learning - Application form together with detailed outlines for their previous subjects and a certified transcript that provides evidence of their marks for those subjects. Forms and supporting documents should be submitted to Student Central.

Student Central staff will forward credit applications to the School of Nursing for assessment and you will receive a student email advising you of the outcome once a decision has been made.

If you have any questions about completing your form or the supporting documentation we require, please contact Student Central via 1300 275 869 or email the team.
