Graduate Certificate in Research Ethics – Recognition of Prior Learning

On the basis of having completed the Centre’s Intensive Bioethics Course within the last five years, it is possible for students to receive recognition of prior learning towards the completion of the Graduate Certificate in Research Ethics. On successful completion of a short piece of written assessment to the required standard, students are able to apply for credit for either APG4393 Ethics, or APG4717 Human Research Ethics. Submission of the assessment will attract an administration fee to cover the costs of marking the paper. Please note that the fee must be paid before assessment is submitted.
