If you've completed previous study, you may be eligible to receive credit for – or exemption from – certain courses in a UQ program.
If you receive credit or exemptions for previous study, you won’t have to repeat similar courses and may be able to graduate sooner.
Types of credit and exemptions
Depending on the study you've completed, you may receive:
specified credit – you won't need to study the specific course you receive credit for and may be able to graduate sooner
unspecified credit – you won't need to study an introductory-level or elective course and may be able to graduate sooner
exemptions – you won't need to take the course you receive an exemption for, but you'll need to take another course in its place. Exemptions let you progress into advanced-level studies without having to study introductory courses.
