Recognition of Prior Learning

Please be aware that the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process takes several weeks to complete and we would therefore encourage early applications. The deadline for applications is 31 July for entry onto programmes the following September. Late applications may delay the programme start date by a year.

If you have any questions about this process please contact the programme manager. More information can be found on the RPL webpage.
