University Pathways

Australian Institute of Advanced Studies is forging links with universities to give students credit towards university programs. Our management team is in the process of negotiating formal agreements with a number of universities for direct articulation programs.

There are many pathways that lead from an AUS-IAS course to a university degree. When you study with AUS-IAS, you'll open up many possible future routes into higher education. AUS-IAS partners with a number of universities to deliver graduate qualifications.

Many AUS-IAS qualifications can earn you credit towards a Degree at universities or higher education organisations across Australia. The amount of credit you may receive depends on the agreed arrangements (known as articulation arrangements) for your qualification and the higher education qualification you want to do.

You may be eligible for:

How do I apply for credit?

Each university has a different way to apply for credit. You usually have to provide evidence of your AUS-IAS qualification when you apply for entry or at enrolment. Check the process with your chosen university or institution. Even if credit transfer arrangements exist and you meet the criteria, your entry is not guaranteed.

What if no credit transfer agreement is listed for my course?

Where there is no AUS-IAS articulation agreement for either your chosen AUS-IAS course or your chosen university, you may still approach any Australian university to negotiate your own credit arrangement.
