Articulation from and to other courses (See Rule 3 Rules of Admissions and Student Progress)
The Bachelor of Business with Honours provides pathways to (and from) a number of other courses at the University of Tasmania:
- Graduates from the Bachelor of Business at the University of Tasmania (or equivalent) are eligible to continue their studies in the Bachelor of Business with Honours course and will receive 300 credit points of advanced standing for their previous studies.
- Students currently studying for a degree in another Faculty or College are able to apply to transfer to the Bachelor of Business with Honours and will be assessed for advanced standing for their previous study.
Alternative entry pathway
If you don't have the prerequisites for direct entry into a Business degree, an alternative entry pathway helps you get the qualifications you need to enter the course you want.
One option is to complete an Associate Degree in Applied Business through the University College, which allows students to articulate into business courses with TSBE.
An AQF-recognised Diploma, or an Advanced Diploma in a Business related discipline from an Australian TAFE or other Registered Training Organisation, is another option. It may also mean you're eligible for advanced standing (credit) in a degree. If you have already started a degree at our University, or at an Australian or overseas tertiary institution, you may also be eligible for advanced standing (credit) in a similar degree.
