What is Articulation?
Articulation is usually the progression of a student from one course to a course at a higher level, with some partial credit given. It is often documented through an Articulation Agreement between two institutions. This is useful for students who do not yet meet the entry criteria for the course they would like to study or have a stepping stone approach to education. Articulation Agreements are designed to ensure consistency in agreements with both higher education providers or vocational education and training providers, whether Australian or overseas, and whether public or private.
Articulation principles support all arrangements that recognise the range of pathways into and between AQF qualifications. Academia (RTO 45027) is the approved Registered Training Organisation who has formal articulation agreements with Australian universities.
An articulation agreement is a formal agreement whereby students completing a program of study with a partner institution can receive advanced standing (credit) on beginning of their study at university. It aims to enhance progression into and between Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) qualifications, through consistent and equitable recognition of formal and informal prior learning.
