Recognition of Prior Learning

RPL and Credit Transfer

Recognition of Prior Learning, or RPL, can give you the opportunity to gain credits from previous study or life skills relevant to your course. To be successful, you will need to have a reasonable amount of experience in the area the course covers. 

If you are continuing from secondary school or have limited work or life experience, you should consider your claim for RPL carefully before applying. If you are a mature age student with relevant experience, your skills are likely to have some value for credit through RPL. If you have qualifications or skills from another institute or training provider, you may gain credits.
