Recognition of Prior Learning

What is a recognition of prior learning?

Recognition of prior learning (RPL) is a process that recognises experience, independent study, or credit obtained at the same or other teaching institutions. RPL is granted to students who demonstrate that they have met the required learning outcomes established for a course.

The benefits to a student in undertaking RPL include:

  • Professional assessment and evaluation of prior learning and/or experience
  • Provides a fast track to completion of further study and training through recognition of past achievements
  • There are potential time and money savings by full or partial exemptions.


You will be charged $100 per course that is recognised up to the value of $500 (5 courses).View the Recognition of Prior Learning Policy here.

To go through the RPL Process you will initially be invoiced for a $100 admin fee. This helps to cover the time taken by our team to work through your transcripts and match these against the courses to reach an outcome for you. If you finalise the RPL process and enrol with us the $100 fee that was paid will be taken off your final invoice (1 course will not be charged).
