Recognition of Prior Learning

The Master of Health Technology Innovation is a two year (96 credit point) program. 

Depending on the level and type of your previous tertiary studies in health and/or technology, you may be eligible for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) which will shorten the length of the degree. Eligible students could save up-to 48 credit points (a reduction of up-to 2 semesters of equivalent full-time study), and complete the program within 12 months of full-time study.



- In the Master of Health Technology Innovation, credit may be granted against the Foundation Units component, up-to 24 credit points maximum.



- Students with previous postgraduate qualifications or an honours level bachelor degree, in health and/or technology disciplines, may be granted credit against other specific units of study, up to a maximum of 24 credit points.

Further information on RPL can be found at  http://sydney.edu.au/engineering/it/current_students/postgrad_coursework/rpl.shtml

Capstone Project

A candidate for the Master of Health Technology Innovation must complete 24 credit points from Core, Specialist or Foundation units of study before taking the Health Technology Innovation Capstone Project. Candidates who do not achieve a credit average may have their eligibility for the Capstone Project subject to review by the Academic Director.

Dissertation

With permission from the Dean or nominee, a candidate for the Master of Health Technology Innovation who has completed 24 credit points from Core, Specialist or Foundation units of study with at least Distinction average marks may take Health Technology Innovation Dissertation Project units.
