Pathways and credit transfers

RMIT’s flexible pathways can help you to achieve your educational goals.

RMIT offers different levels of study that can help you reach the qualification you're aiming for.

Some programs provide guaranteed entry and credit which can help you reduce the time it takes to complete your studies.  

These pathways between RMIT programs are listed in our program summaries.

Coming from a partner institution?

RMIT has pathway arrangements with many partner institutions around the world.

If your institution has a pathway arrangement with RMIT you may be able to receive credit and reduce the time it will take to complete your preferred RMIT program.

If you have qualifications from an institution that is not an RMIT partner, credit into your RMIT program will be assessed on a case by case basis.
