In some cases students may already have qualifications which can be given credit toward the completion of the course they wish to take. In these cases “Advanced Standing,” in recognition of the prior learning, will be given. A notification, in writing, showing the impact of this on course duration, and the units to be completed in order to graduate, will be given.

Currently within our postgraduate courses the following standard credit arrangements are in place:

  • Completed Graduate Diploma of Ministry = 1 year credit toward the Master of Arts or Master of Divinity courses

Full details of PBC’s approach to and procedures for applying for credit for recognised prior learning are outlined in our Recognition of Prior Learning policy.

Current Cross-Crediting Arrangements.

PBC from time to time will have in place agreements with other organisations or institutions to provide credit towards PBC’s awards.
