Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) provides students an opportunity to have their current skills and competencies recognised. These skills and competencies may relate to units you are about to commence and as a result can exempt you from studying these units. However, there is a cost related to obtaining Recognition of Prior Learning. The process requires students to gather evidence confirming their competency. A content specialist will advise you in this task. Enquire if you think you qualify. If the education provider grants an overseas student RPL, it may impact on student visa conditions through a shortening of the student’s course.
