Monash University Credit Partnership​

An academic partnership between NESLI and Monash University is now enabling teaching professionals across the country to gain credit towards the Master of Education and Master of Leadership through their participation in a number of NESLI’s flagship programs. This partnership is the result of extensive collaborative work by both parties and represents a new level of alignment between practical professional development and world standard academic achievement.

Under the partnership, NESLI graduates are able to apply for 12 credit points via specified credit for Leadership studies unit (EDF5670) towards the internationally respected Master of Leadership. This equates to 25 per cent of the qualification. Alternatively, graduates may apply for credit in the Master of Education course. In which case, 12 points of unspecified credit will apply. Participation in a Monash University program is subject to Monash University's admission requirements.

Importantly, both the Master of Education and Master of Leadership include fully online options enabling teaching professionals from anywhere in Australia to realise a world standard advanced degree qualification.
