Students are strongly advised to retain their General Electives or elective courses towards a major/s to undertake on exchange. These courses are often the easiest to gain approval for by the BEL Faculty and will provide the most flexibility when it comes time to enrol in courses at the host university. Flexibility in program requirements and course selection are essential to a successful exchange.

All BEL Faculty students who intend to undertake Short-term Global (Virtual) Experiences for credit transfer will need to apply via the Internships and Global Experiences (IGET) in advance by the stipulated deadlines. Only students who have been pre-approved by IGET and the BEL Faculty, will be guaranteed for credit transfer once the experience has been successfully completed and an official/certified final transcript for this experience has been received by the University.

No student will be permitted to apply for credit transfer retrospectively for Short-term Global (Virtual) Experiences. For students who were not pre-approved in advance by IGET and the BEL Faculty, credit transfer will not be granted, regardless of whether courses are listed in the Credit Precedent Database as approved or other pre-approved students have been granted credit transfers for the same course.

While many BEL degree programs may be accredited by an official industry accreditation body in Australia, completion of the degree and completion of courses on exchange may not directly result in graduates receiving accreditation. Students should avoid undertaking compulsory/core courses and courses required for professional accreditation purposes whilst on exchange, as this may have implications for accreditation later on. This is particularly relevant to Bachelor of Commerce Accounting Major students. Students are advised to contact the relevant registration body for details of any conditions for accreditation.
