Professional Practice degrees

Deakin University’s innovative professional practice degrees are designed for experienced professionals seeking formal recognition of knowledge, skills and expertise developed throughout their careers.

Our approach

As an alternative to traditional higher education, Professional Practice degrees accelerate the completion of a degree on the basis of prior learning and work experience.

Professionals undertaking professional practice qualifications gain their degree through a combination of micro-credentialling and coursework units. This includes:

  • introductory units that provide the insight, knowledge and tools to complete the qualification
  • Professional Practice credentials attained by providing a portfolio of evidence at the required level
  • a capstone unit where learners complete a professional project that demonstrates their expertise and contributes to their field of practice in a meaningful way.
