Accreditation of Prior Certified Learning

Accreditation of Prior Certified Learning (APCL) enables you to bring in to your degree pathway qualifications you have already achieved, if they are of the appropriate level and type. For example our level 4 diploma counts towards the credit for the first year of your degree, whilst the level 5 diploma counts towards the second year so that you can move onto the next ‘year’ or level.

Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning

Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL) allows you to use your professional experiences to gain credit. For example, you may have worked on a project in work that has enabled your company to move forward in some way. You can use the evidence of this activity together with a short reflective essay evaluating your own professional development as a result of this, to build credit as part of your degree pathway.
