Transferring Students

Transferring to SITCM’s Bachelor of Traditional Chinese Medicine 

If you wish to transfer from another institution, please apply directly via Apply Online.

To have your studies considered for admission, you must complete at least 0.125 full time equivalent load within one degree at your institution.

If you hold overseas qualifications from a country where English is not the sole language of instruction and assessment, you will need to provide proof of English language proficiency.

Please see our entry requirements for more details.

Credit for Prior Learning

If you have already completed units at another institution, some of that study may be recognised through credit toward your Bachelor of Traditional Chinese Medicine (BTCM). The amount of credit awarded depends on how closely the subjects you have completed are related to the equivalent units in SITCM’s BTCM.

For general information, contact the Administration Office at

For more comprehensive and in-person advice, you can book an appointment with the Associate Dean at Please bring to the appointment your academic transcript, as this will form the basis of the discussion.

Note: Completion of an Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) accredited Certificate IV, Diploma and Advanced Diploma will be considered for entry into the BTCM, however no course credits will be awarded.
