Recognition of prior learning (RPL)
You may not meet the minimum academic
requirements, but we understand that
knowledge and skills can be acquired from
a wide range of learning experiences, both
formal and informal.
Our RPL scheme takes into account the wider
picture. If you can demonstrate relevant work
experience or have credits from recognised
professional bodies, you may be qualified to
enter the course you want. You may also be
eligible for credits within your course.
RPL allows you to transfer credit gained from
one course or institution to another. It also
means you can use credit from a previously
uncompleted course towards another.
The knowledge and skills you’ve gained
through life and work experience, as well as,
through non-certified learning, development
and training can go towards your RPL.
As a mature student, you’ll be able to bring
a lot of valuable life and work experience to
your studies. Adding a qualification to your
experience can help you advance in your
current career or help you move confidently
into a new field.
We also understand that as a mature student
you may have more responsibilities and
commitments. With support available in the
form of our mature and part-time students’
group, we’re here to help.
It’s important that you’re fluent in written and
spoken English to get the best out of your
UK study experience. We’ve got a range of
facilities in place to develop your skills while
you’re here and to give you a head start before
You’ll find our INTO GCU partnership oers
academic preparation courses and English
language courses for international students,
while our learning development centres are
here to provide academic writing support for
both home and international students.
