How RPL Works

How Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) works.

How Recognition of Prior Learning works:

  1. All relevant prior learning can be recognised and considered for purposes of admission to programmes of study and/or for the granting of exemptions from parts of a programme of study.
  2. Potential students should enter into a formal programme of study at a level appropriate to their prior learning and qualifications.
  3. Grades are not awarded for the parts of a programme exempted on the basis of RPL.
  4. Exempted modules are not considered in the classification of an award.
  5. Credit for learning can be given only once.
  6. Applicants are encouraged to submit evidence of reflective practice to support their prior learning claim.
  7. The applicant is responsible for compiling the portfolio of evidence in compliance with institute policy and guidelines.
  8. Academic standards must be maintained in the RPL process.
  9. Recognition of prior learning will be with reference to learning outcomes at the appropriate academic level. Recognition is given for learning, not for experience per se.
  10. The RPL process shall be consistent, fair and transparent.
  11. The RPL assessment/evaluation process will ensure that the successful applicants are committed and capable of successfully completing the programme.
