- TAFE NSW: UTS has an articulated credit transfer policy with TAFE NSW. Block credit may be granted for a number of completed TAFE courses. To be eligible for credit, students must have completed their course at a minimum Diploma (AQF) or higher. These courses must have been completed no earlier than two years prior to their commencement in the relevant course at UTS, i.e. students commencing in 2012 must have completed their TAFE courses in 2010 or later.
- INSEARCH: Students who have completed appropriate courses through INSEARCH, if admitted, are given up to one year's credit recognition in the Bachelor of Business.
Students who are enrolled in the Bachelor of Business and have previously studied at another university or other recognised tertiary educational institution may be eligible for credit recognition if the subjects previously studied are deemed by UTS: Business to be equivalent to those specified for their course.
Students who have completed subjects at a recognised university may be granted exemptions for particular subjects at UTS or unspecified electives which are credit points granted without nominating a particular subject equivalent. To be considered for credit recognition, subjects must have been completed no more than 10 years prior to the commencement of the Bachelor of Business course. Undergraduate students who have been identified as having studied at another university prior to the commencement of their studies at UTS normally receive information on applying for credit recognition at approximately the same time as they receive their offer of a place at UTS.
Students who have completed a course at a private college are not eligible for any exemptions unless an articulation agreement between UTS: Business and the college is in place.
