Course Credit

International students entering Years 11-12 can be credited with prior learning in the following ways:

1. As credit towards the calculation of Overall Position (OP) Equivalents.

When a student is enrolling in Clayfield College directly from an overseas school and where the report card from that school shows that the student has studied an equivalent subject to the one they are undertaking at Clayfield College, credit for one or more semesters may be given providing that:

  • The subject is deemed equivalent in content
  • The subject has been studied for multiples of six monthly periods
  • The level of study is deemed to be comparable to the level of study that the student would have undertaken had they enrolled in a similar course in Queensland.

The decision to grant credit under these terms, rests with the College.

2. As credit towards attaining the Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE).

International students who study for more than four semesters in a Queensland school may have prior learning credited towards a QCE by applying to the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority for Relaxation of the Core. To do this a student must:

  • Apply in writing to the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (proformas available on their website)
  • Provide documentary evidence which includes the most recent school reports, proof of the level of study undertaken, and a letter from the Principal of the overseas school stating that the subject was studied for a minimum of 55 hours per semester, including assessment.

The decision to grant credit under these terms rests with the QCAA, not Clayfield College.

Please contact the Enrolments Manager for more details.
