墨尔本、悉尼、新南威尔士、南澳大学等大学,都是中国同学转学澳洲的首选大学,本分将着重分析墨尔本大学和墨尔本大学工程学院的转学中,和英文课程描述制作的注意事项。



2014年夫子团队送走了15位转学分去墨尔本工程学院研究生院入读的同学,全部是转学分入读的。最多的同学转了100个学分,直接从研究生二年级读起。(注:墨尔本大学研究生每年开设8门课,每门课12.5学分)

墨尔本大学一直是国内学习工科同学转学的热门大学,从夫子团队2010年开始为同学们提供转学分英文课程描述开始,这个趋势就没有消退过。当然,这样一所世界排名38位,工程学院排名全球前30的大学,的的确确是值得工科同学追求的。夫子一直想找个时间好好和大家谈一谈墨尔本工程学院的转学注意事项,今天有时间就给同学们简单说一下。


首先一点要说的是,墨大是接受转学分的,官网上有明确的说明:


Credit for previous study

Credit (advanced standing) for completed tertiary studies may be granted if any of the previous studies are comparable in content, equivalent in standard and suitable to be included as part of the course. Faculties specify the maximum credit allowable and publish guidelines. Decisions regarding credit are only made after an offer of a place in the course has been made.



如果同学们翻开墨尔本大学的网站,其实对于转学还是有很清晰的指导说明的,因为国内很多时候上海外网页速度的问题,夫子把关键的部分都给大家摘下来了:

大家可以看到,其实墨尔本大学对于工科生转学时所提交的英文课程描述的要求还是比较明确和严格的。

同时也可以看一下墨大对于无论本科生还是研究生课程描述细节的要求:


2. Types of Credit Arrangements

2.1     Two different types of credit may be granted:

a)    Exempt advanced standing is credit granted in relation to a specific subject or subjects, on the basis of having taken the subjects, or studies deemed substantially equivalent, in the first course.

b)    General advanced standing is credit granted in relation to an unspecified discipline area, subject or group of subjects.

2.2     The type of credit granted will be determined with reference to the following aspects of the study for which credit is being sought:

  • course requirements;
  • content;
  • learning outcomes;
  • assessment methods;
  • contact hours;
  • volume of learning; and
  • credit point weighting.

2.3     Exempt advanced standing may be granted for a subject or subjects common to both the first and second course, for example, in the following circumstances:

a)    the subject completed in the first course is a compulsory or core subject in the second course; or

b)    the first and second courses together constitute an approved combined course; or

c)    the student has elected not to complete the first course but to transfer instead to the second course.

2.4     Exempt or general advanced standing may be granted for a subject(s) taken in the first course that are not part of the second course where the subject(s) in the first course are judged to be of an equivalent academic standard to a subject(s) in the second course and appropriate to contribute to the second course.

2.5     Exempt advanced standing will be granted in preference to general advanced standing where specific subject(s) in the second course have been deemed to be substantially equivalent to the subject(s) taken in the first course.


在如下的就是墨尔本大学在转学分过程中对于转学分上限以及评审参阅标注的一些说明了:


3. Limitations on the granting of credit

3.1     The following maximum granting of credit unless the Board explicitly approves otherwise:

a)    The maximum credit for a completed prior degree towards a three-year bachelor degree is 100 points. Up to an additional 100 points of advanced standing may be granted if the student has undertaken study that has not been credited towards a completed prior award.

b)    The maximum credit for incomplete prior studies towards a three-year bachelor degree is 200 points, which will normally comprise 150 points towards the core component and 50 points towards the breadth component in the case of a New Generation degree.

c)    The maximum credit for incomplete or completed prior studies towards a graduate program is 50% of the credit points required for the award, or 100 points, whichever is the lesser, except in the case of nested programs (see below).

d)    A maximum of 100 points of credit will be cross-credited when a student completes two New Generation bachelor degrees sequentially.

e)    The maximum credit for points for a completed two-year diploma or associate degree towards a three-year bachelor degree is 200 points, which will normally include 50 points towards the breadth component in the case of a New Generation degree.

3.2     The following additional limitations on the award of credit apply unless the Board explicitly approves otherwise:

a)    Credit may not be granted where the content of a subject taken in the first course has become out of date, even if it would once have been considered equivalent to a subject offered at the University. This limitation also applies to students resuming a course following discontinuation or termination.

b)    Subjects taken more than ten years prior will be deemed out of date. Shorter timeframes may apply in some discipline areas at the discretion of teaching faculties.

c)    If there is any doubt as to a student’s ability to progress to higher level studies following award of credit, they may be called upon to demonstrate their competence in the relevant subject area.

d)    Credit will not be awarded towards subjects offered in the final year of a bachelor degree except on the basis of studies undertaken as part of a pre-approved exchange, study abroad or cross-institutional program.

e)    Credit will not be awarded on the basis of failed or incomplete subjects, including those where the student has subsequently received a conceded or compensatory pass.

f)     Credit will not be granted on the basis of studies completed at another institution while a student is deferred or on leave (see section 6.2).

g)    Credit will only be granted for entire subjects, not part subjects.

3.3     Credit towards graduate programs on the basis of studies undertaken at undergraduate level may only be granted in the following circumstances:

a)    where the graduate program is a masters degree of more than 150 points, and the advanced standing is granted for subjects that are not part of the final 150 points of the masters degree;

b)    where the graduate program is at (post)graduate certificate or diploma level and students have undertaken relevant subjects at an appropriate level as part of a bachelor degree.

3.4     Students cannot rescind credit points for subjects already completed in their course in order to replace them with credit granted under this policy.


总之,墨尔本大学尽管是一所世界顶级的澳洲大学,但是转学的时候如果能够提供一份符合墨尔本大学的英文课程描述,那么转学墨尔本并不是遥不可及的。
