Exemption:

An exemption does not count as a credit towards a BCA award. If an exemption for a unit is granted,
an alternative unit must be completed.
#
Credit:

Units completed previously that have not been credited for another degree or postgraduate award may be
eligible as credits towards a BCA degree.
Please talk to the program coordinator or student administrator if you need further information about exemptions and credits.

Reasons for exemption:
Please summarise the grounds for your request, e.g. that you have already studied and passed
Epidemiology as part of a Master of Public Health, or that you have covered the topics in Principles of Statistical Inference in a
third year inference unit during your statistics degree. Please attach any supporting documentation (e.g. transcript) if not already
supplied with your application for admission.
