Recognition of Prior Learning

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is the formal acknowledgment of your existing skills and knowledge.  It’s based on the premise that you do not need to undertake training for skills you already possess.

Your current skills and knowledge may have been obtained through:

  • Formal training
  • Work experience
  • Life experience

The RPL application process requires you to provide evidence of, or demonstrate, your current ability to perform the requirements of a subject(s) within your course.

If you can show that you have the required skills or knowledge then you will be granted RPL, and exempt from completing the work required for that subject. Refer to Ivy College’s Recognition of Prior Learning policy and procedure for more detail.

A separate mutual recognition policy and procedure applies for applicants seeking credit transfer.
