Recognition of Prior Learning
Applicants who consider that they may be eligible for RPL should first read B4: Recognition of Prior Learning Policy, before contacting the ORMS Admin Team to arrange further discussion with a member of the programme or course management team. This discussion will enable the applicant to decide whether to proceed with a full claim and to clarify the evidence required, including level of learning, the subject area of the module and the nature of the evidence to be provided.
When the evidence has been submitted, this will be examined by a member of the programme team who will prepare the RPL report for consideration by the Course Management Team.
Submission of evidence must be completed and successful prior to the offer of a confirmed place on the programme. Therefore, you should plan to submit your evidence at least 2 months prior to the start day of the programme you wish to enrol on.
