Progression into the Bachelor of Science (Honours) is available for suitable candidates or students can progress with a Master of Information Technology.

Admission requirements are met by one of the following:

  • Successful completion of the Northern Territory Certificate of Education and Training (or equivalent) and the awarding of an Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR) of at least 60*.
  • Successful completion of a national qualification at Certificate III level or higher.

We recommend you apply for a credit transfer if you've previously completed your study. This can be from a course you've completed at CDU or another institution.

You need to have completed your course within the last 7 years, and it should be relevant to the new course you're studying.

If it's been longer than 7 years since you completed your course, we suggest you apply for a Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) instead.
