To enrol in any courses at MCOHB, you must meet any course specific entry requirements and be committed to achieving a qualification.
To enrol, all you need to do is come in and see us and:
All of our enrolments are done face to face. You don’t need to make an appointment, we just ask that you come between the hours of 9:30am and 2:30pm. If you wish to start the process, you may print our Enrolment Form under Downloads and bring it along with you to the interview.
All students wishing to enrol in a course with us must satisfactorily complete a Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) test, before being able to complete the enrolment process. This is to ensure that you are enrolling in a course that you will be able to complete and that meets your LLN requirements.
All students who study in any courses in Australia from 1 January 2015, must also have a Unique Student Identifier (USI) number. You can make one on the USI website, or you can give MCOHB permission to create one for you.
Policies and Procedures
All policies and procedures for Melbourne College of Hair and Beauty are available upon request and should be viewed prior to enrolment.
It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that all policies are clearly understood before enrolling, and if not, to seek clarification from the Director.
Melbourne College of Hair and Beauty recognises and accepts the qualifications and statements of attainment issued by another registered training organisation based in a State/Territory of Australia.
Course Credit is exemption from enrolment in a particular part of the course as a result of previous study, experience or recognition of competency currently held. Course Credit includes Credit Transfer and Recognition of Prior Learning which are described below.
There are some general guidelines regarding Course Credit:
What is National Recognition?
Melbourne College of Hair and Beauty recognises the qualifications that are presented by any student, provided that they are original (or verified) copies from any Australian Registered Training Organisation. National Recognition underpins the Credit Transfer principle.
Credit Transfer (CT) is a process that provides credit for a unit of competency previously achieved. This means that if you have completed a unit of competency at another Australian Registered Training Organisation, that is identical to one in which you are currently enrolled you may be eligible for Credit Transfer and you won’t need to complete that unit of study again. For Credit Transfer, you must bring along with you the original Statement of Attainment or Certificate and you will not be required to undertake the RPL procedure. Units of competency are defined in Training Packages which are periodically updated, so there can be occasions where a unit of competency that you have completed may not exactly match the new unit of competency; in these cases you will be referred to the Recognition of Prior Learning process.
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) refers to recognition of competencies currently held obtained through informal learning regardless of how, when or where the learning occurred. Under AQTF, competencies may be attained in a number of ways, including formal or informal training, education, work experience or general life experience. In order to grant RPL, the assessor must be confident that the candidate is currently competent as defined within the National Training Package or outcomes specified in accredited courses.
The evidence may take a variety of forms and may include certification, reference from past employers, testimonials from clients and work samples. The assessor must ensure that the evidence is authentic, valid, reliable, current and sufficient.
RPL and credit transfer procedures ensure that each application is considered according to accreditation guidelines. RPL fees apply.
The student tuition fee is indicative only and subject to change given individual circumstances at enrolment.
