Recognition of Prior Experiential or Certificated Learning (RPE/CL)

The recognition of prior experiential or certificated learning (RPE/CL) gives a student academic credit for certificated or experiential learning gained before entering a programme of study. 

The University regulations governing the recognition of prior certificated or experiential learning and further guidance can be found in the Academic Quality Handbook.‌

Programmes that are designed for candidates with prior learning should have this detailed and explained in the Programme Specification, and the arrangements for processing RPE/CL applications should be agreed during programme development.

In all other circumstances, claims for RPE/CL should be referred to the Programme Co-ordinator.
