In Australia, you experience a unique kind of education – a learning style that encourages innovative, creative, independent thinking. You build skills to give you an advantage – Academically, Personally, Creatively and Professionally.
The Australian education system is distinguished from many other countries by the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF).
The AQF is a national system established by the Australian Government that links courses and qualifications. It covers University, Vocational Education and Training, and School education.
The AQF allows you to move easily from one level of study to the next and from one institution to another as long as you satisfy student visa requirements. It gives you flexibility in career planning and encourages you to continue learning to help you through any career and lifestyle changes you make in your life.
The AQF provides guidelines for assessment and accreditation of qualifications such as Diplomas and Degrees. For example, you can seek credit towards a qualification for the knowledge and skills you gained through previous study, training, work and life experience. Once you establish the status of your existing qualifications, you can choose from appropriate level courses anywhere in Australia. Even if you partially complete an AQF qualification you are issued a Statement of Attainment.
