RPL for access into master’s and doctoral qualifications

Your experience could translate into subject credits within your qualification or direct access into a postgraduate qualification.

During your lifetime, you will have acquired various skills, competencies and experiences. This learning – which may have taken place outside of formal education and training – is valuable regardless of where or when it was obtained. You may have acquired skills or knowledge from a combination of training conducted while at work, experience you gained in the workplace, short courses or from community work in a relevant field.
