Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

If you have completed relevant prior study, training and/or industry experience you may not need to enrol in the full duration of your program. 

To gain Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) we need to assess evidence of previous learning, employment, industry activities and talents. The evidence must be authenticated (academic transcripts, subject outlines, references, awards), which we then compare to the subjects in the Diploma of Interior Design. If there is sufficient verifiable evidence you have attained all of the subject learning outcomes you may be granted Credit for a subject or Unit of Competency. We will recognise previous units of study and qualifications for current training packages and courses completed within the past 5 years. You apply for RPL during the application process for the program of your choice. 

VET Credit Transfer

You can apply for Credit if you have previously studied similar units, already successfully completed the same or equivalent units with another Registered Training Organisation, or have strong work experience in a similar field as your preferred program. AIT will recognise previous units of study and qualifications for current training packages and courses completed within the past 7 years.
