From within Queensland
Young people moving from one Queensland learning provider to another will already have a learning account through which the new provider will continue to report learning. See the QCE Handbook (Section 4.1) for more information.
From other Australian states
Young people moving to Queensland from another Australian state will need to be registered for a learning account.
Recognised studies completed in other states can contribute credits towards a QCE. Relaxation of the completed Core requirements may be necessary for a transferring student to be eligible for a QCE. See the QCE Handbook (Sections 4.2 and 4.3) for more information.
Student visa holders
Learning providers must not open a student account for a student visa holder, or give notice to the QCAA of the enrolment of a student visa holder, without the holder's written agreement. Once the permission is gained and the learning account opened, procedures for recognition of learning apply as for other overseas student transfers (see below).
Other overseas students
Other overseas students need to be registered for a learning account.
Recognised studies completed overseas can contribute credits towards a QCE. See the QCE Handbook (Section 4.4) for more information.
Relaxation of completed Core requirements
Young people transferring from interstate and overseas and some young people transferring from one Queensland learning provider to another may be unable to meet the requirement of 12 credits of completed core courses of study. These students can apply to the QCAA for relaxation from Core requirements. See the QCE Handbook (Section 4.9) for more information.
