Before you apply...
Before applying, there are some general things you should know about studying in Australia and at The Sydney Business and Travel Academy.
Applying for Credit/Exemptions
If you've studied previously in a related area you may be entitled to receive credits for part of your course. If you think this applies to you, it's important that you be assessed prior to formally enrolling. You can receive an estimate on any credits which you may be entitled to by scanning and emailing, or faxing, your final transcripts to us. We will then make an assessment. Final approval for credits can be made only after sighting your originals--we are unable to accept copies for approval purposes.
Please be aware that being granted credits may result in a shorter course, and visa, duration and that the RPL assessment can only take place prior to enrolment.
Course Deferrals and Suspensions
Students are able to defer or temporarily suspend their studies during their course only in certain limited circumstances, on the grounds of compassionate or compelling circumstances. Students who would like to defer their studies must first speak to the Academic Coordinator. Prior to applying to defer their program students must ensure that they have paid any tuition fees outstanding, or which will fall due during the period of leave. There is no reduction in course fees during periods of leave. Deferral of studies is permitted only in compassionate or compelling circumstances such as serious illness, death in the family or for some other reason. Students will be required to provide evidence of the compassionate or compelling circumstances. Students that are suspended or granted deferral may be required to extend their course and their visa at their own expense, and that availability of units of study are not guaranteed. Students may be suspended from their studies for serious and willful misconduct. Misconduct may include, but is not limited to, criminal activity, harassment or verbal abuse of staff or students, failure to pay fees, plagiarism or cheating. Students will have the right to appeal through the college's published appeals and grievances process. In this event, any and all additional costs in completing the enrolled course will be borne by the student.
