What is the difference between advanced standing and specified and unspecified credit?

Updated 16/11/2022 03.40 PM

Advanced standing is the granting of block credit of a trimester or more, and reduces the number of courses you must undertake to successfully complete a program.

Specified and unspecified credit is granted for one or more specific courses in a program, exempting you from those courses or electives, and awarding the appropriate credit points in their place.

See Section 4 of the Credit and Recognition of Prior Learning Procedure for full definitions of these terms.
