Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process designed to recognise previous formal or informal learning, work and life experiences that the student may have had to the extent that they are relevant to the course outcomes.
The RPL process allows students to receive recognition under these circumstances and therefore enable them to focus more on areas they need to achieve competencies in order to gain their qualifications.
Students who believe they already have some of the competencies in the course may apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).
