Professional Practice Credentials in Degrees
What is a Professional Practice Qualification?
Most courses at Deakin University are designed to introduce students to new knowledge and skills, allowing them to receive academic recognition as a result of this newly-acquired skillset. By contrast, Professional Practice qualifications are designed for those who wish to be credentialed for outcomes towards which they have already made significant progress through their extensive experience in a relevant professional field.
