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 is Campus creating a “productivity miracle?”

Production efficiency occurs when incoming, better-educated graduates enter the labour force, bringing their new knowledge, and create better processes. This process is called the “productivity miracle” and has been a reliable economic phenomenon for 50 years. The productivity miracle is like gaining better human technology. On the whole, better-educated people create more effective ways of producing things.

In the last decade, the cost of education has increased over three times faster than the cost of living. This cost is largely due to government regulation and red tape. As a result, fewer students are willing to take on growing education debts, and resultantly, the lack of educational attainment is becoming a major economic problem.

Campus is making education accessible again. And in doing so, it is advancing the productivity miracle.

How are courses delivered?

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

What free inclusions do I get with my course?

Campus courses come packed with some high quality free programs that are extremely relevant to modern learners and those seeking career advancement. All Campus courses, units and specialisations come with the Super Learner and Career Edge programs. The Super Learner program has been developed to assist learners get the most out of their educational experience, using findings from leading global research to show you better ways to grow your mind, to study and retain information, and to manage your time while staying on track with your goals. The Career Edge program assists those seeking to maximise their career opportunities and set themselves apart.

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?

It’s quite common not to pass an assessment on the first attempt. It’s important to refocus, review the course material, access support where necessary and retry. Campus courses and units come pre-packaged with two (2) assessment credits per unit. This is to maintain academic rigour in the assessment process. If a student fails an assessment, they can undertake another assessment free of charge (using the second assessment). If a student fails the same unit assessment again (i.e. twice), they are required to purchase assessment credit to undertake further assessment for the same unit. A minimum of 65% correct answers are required in order to demonstrate competency and pass an assessment.

I am having trouble watching videos, what should I do?

Videos are streamed through a HTML5 video player. This technology allows you to watch videos using a range of different devices and browsers. If are unable to play a video, please contact us via www.campuscollege.edu.au/contact describing what is happening, and we will provide you with more specific feedback.

If you can play the video, however you are experiencing issues with the flow of the content (e.g. the presentation is not playing continuously, or it is taking a long time to load), then we recommend you contact your internet service provider to verify whether there are temporary problems with your internet connection and speed.

Will I be able to get Recognition of Prior Learning for training I complete with Campus?

Graduates of Campus College courses interested in attaining an AQF-accredited qualification have the option to undertake the Campus Accredited Training Pathway (CATP), with select coursework issuing Providers. Through the CATP, Campus Graduates can enrol with the Registered Training Organisation (RTO) that issued the coursework for their Campus Benchmarked course at no additional cost to their Campus course tuition fees.

As Campus’ Benchmarked Courses™ vary from their accredited counterparts predominantly in the assessment methodology, students enrolling via the CATP will be required to undertake additional assessment work (including open-text answers, essays, etc) to obtain their accredited qualification. Students may also be required to complete additional practicals and a work placement component.

More information about CATP is available via the Campus Student Handbook.
