Credit Accumulation Transfer

Credit Accumulation Transfer (CAT) allows learners to transfer credits from another institution for a similar qualification that they have not completed, recognising their prior learning and enabling them to progress towards their educational goals.

To be eligible for CAT, you must demonstrate competence in the knowledge, skills, values, and attitudes embedded in the Design Academy of Fashion (DAF) qualification, and provide a detailed transcript of the incomplete qualification, a portfolio, participate in an interview and skills tests to showcase your fashion and design aptitude.
