Evidence to undertake study at higher level

A student who does not meet the minimum academic requirement for entry into a course may be offered entry if they demonstrate relevant and recognised prior learning (refer to Recognition of Prior Learning Policy).

In some cases students may be able to gain entry through alternative entry pathways such as Non-degree Entry and the Headstart Program. These entry schemes are primarily open to domestic students enrolled in online programs.

Mature age entry

Students 21 years of age and over may apply for mature age entry. School results, TAFE or VET qualifications, work experience and other informal study may be accepted in support of your application.

Approved articulation arrangements

Applicants may be allowed direct entry through an approved articulation agreement. Articulation agreements provide a pathway between a completed qualification at an external institution and a qualification at Kaplan Business School, enabling students to progress via a defined pathway. The agreement may provide credit into a Kaplan Business School qualification or may establish eligibility for admission only. Articulation agreements must be approved by the Academic Dean with reports provided at every meeting of the Academic Board thereafter detailing the performance of the associated students. Any such cohort-related performance issues are addressed with the external institution with immediacy. Exit clauses are activated in the absence of an improvement in performance following the implementation of tailored intervention strategies.
