Your application will be assessed based on the evidence you provide. Each piece of evidence should be clearly identified and numbered as an attachment, and listed on the first page of your application form.
You will need to provide:
- certified copies of qualifications (what is a certified copy?)
- unit(s) of competency/study/syllabus information from the relevant course guide.
Do not send original documents, however you may be asked to show the original documents to us at a later stage.
If your academic records are from overseas or a private university, certified copies must be provided from the appropriate government body/professional association recognised in Australia (or an equivalent authority for students studying at an offshore site).
Documents in languages other than English must be accompanied by an English translation. The translator must be accredited by the National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters (NAATI) or an equivalent body for offshore students.
Please note: we may contact your former institution(s) and/or current/former employer(s) for further information and/or clarification of your claim for RPL.
You’ll be notified of the outcome of your application via email. Current students must check their VU student email.
If you are concerned about the outcome of your application, contact your course manager – they will try to resolve any issues you may have. If a suitable resolution cannot be reached, you can submit a written appeal which will be reviewed by an independent person.
