Learn how your skills and knowledge gained in the workforce can provide a pathway to university and how Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and Academic Credit can help you finish your degree faster.
Recognition of Prior Learning
RPL recognises skills and knowledge gained through work experience, life experience and/or formal training. The RPL process measures your work experience against the course in which you are enrolled, meaning you may be able to start your course with advanced standing and complete it in a shorter amount of time.
Before you apply for RPL assessment, ask yourself:
- What informal or on-the-job training have I done that might be relevant?
- What activities have I done at work or in social or community-based circumstances?
- How recently did I learn and/or use my skills?
- How can I prove I can perform these skills, or possess this knowledge?
