Recognition of Prior Learning

What is Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)?

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process whereby evidence of learning (formal, non-formal or informal) that has taken place prior to enrolment in higher education is recognised and given value. A fundamental principle of RPL is that a learner should not be asked to relearn something they already know. With RPL, prior learning can count towards entry, advanced entry, credit or exemptions from modules.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) can be used for…

  1. Gaining access or advanced entry into a programme
  2. Gaining exemptions from parts of a programme
  3. Gaining transfer from one programme to another
  4. Gaining entry to post-graduate programmes where the applicant may not have the standard honours primary degree
