Credit for your past work and study
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process that provides you with an opportunity to receive credit for any previous work experience, informal and formal education and training and other formal learning that you may have undertaken. RPL credits may reduce the amount of time it takes to complete your qualification and/or reduce your study load in a particular semester(s).
Assessment of RPL may involve one or more of the following:
- An examination of supporting evidence.
- Contacting referees or previous employers to verify your claims.
- A practical skills test to assess your skills against the requirements of a qualification.
