What is RPL?
Have you completed university studies previously? Have you learned through your work, hobbies or positions of responsibility skills that match some of the requirements of the degree you are currently pursuing? Have you participated in continuing education programmes?
The purpose of Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is to ensure that you do not have to spend time studying things that you already have demonstrably learned. You can apply for RPL for studies you have completed previously as well as for skills and knowledge acquired in other ways. RPL allows you to build a degree that genuinely enhances your learning and allows you to progress faster towards graduation. In addition, the RPL process will help you reflect on and become more aware of your own knowledge and skill set.
