Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Benchmarked Course or Unit?

A Benchmarked Course is a non-accredited qualification, mapped to its government accredited counterpart. Coursework and course material is the same as the accredited version. As such, learners participate in similar learning experience and have the opportunity to acquire similar outcomes.

Why study a Benchmarked Course instead of an accredited course?

A Benchmarked Course provides learners the option to study a course similar to a government accredited program, for a small fraction of the cost. This makes it an ideal option for personal development; professional development; and career development in industries where government accredited qualifications are not required by statutory regulation.

How are courses delivered?

Campus courses are delivered online, with assessments conducted via multiple choice. Courses and Units may also contain optional practical assessments, which may be undertaken at additional cost. Practical assessments add substantial value to the learner experience and are identified on the Statement of Academic Record.

What free inclusions do I get with my course?

Campus believes in the philosophy of lifelong learning. To support this philosophy, Campus courses, units and specialisations come with free annual training credits. The number of free credits provided depends on the program/s undertaken and how the credits are applied by the student – the more they are used, the more they are supplied!

Is there a time limit to complete a course?

Campus courses do not have time limits or other constraints. Students are free to engage in their learning entirely at their own pace (assuming they meet their tuition obligations). Campus also supplies its students with free annual training credits in support of its lifelong learning philosophy (the number of free credits provided depends on the course undertaken and how they are utilised).

What if I fail an assessment?

Campus courses and units come pre-packaged with two (2) assessments per unit. This is to maintain academic rigour in the assessment process. If a student fails an assessment, they can undertake a second assessment free of charge (using the second assessment credit). If a student fails the same unit assessment again, they are required to purchase assessment credit to undertake further assessment for the same unit.
