If you have undertaken previous learning you may be exempt from some modules within your chosen programme. 

This means that you may be able to complete your studies in a shorter time by transferring in credit through Accreditation of Prior Certificated Learning (APCL) or through submission of a claim for Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL):

  • Accreditation of Prior Certificated Learning (APCL) is where you have previously gained academic credit for relevant modules or programmes. 
  • Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL) is where you can gain academic credit for work experience.

You are encouraged to contact either the Programme Leader or the Faculty Credit Co-ordinator should you wish to discuss potential options with them.
