Accreditation of Prior Learning

Accreditation of Prior Learning

Your previous learning may be recognised and accredited if you have successfully completed a course of study which compares in level, content and standard to a course or module of your chosen course with us. You will need to provide us with verified documentary evidence of that previous learning.

 Documentary Evidence Verification

Verification means that your original document has been seen and the photocopy has been certified (stamped and signed) to be a true copy of the original. There are two ways to verify your documents:

Option 1

You can submit photocopies of your original educational documents provided these are certified as a true copy of the original by one of the following authorities:

  • Barrister
  • Commissioner of Oaths
  • Court Registrar or Clerk
  • Justice of the Peace
  • Notary Public
  • Solicitor
Option 2

Contact the relevant awarding/examining authority and arrange for them to send directly to us a statement/transcript of your results. Details must clearly give your name and date of birth. All verified copies must be officially stamped, signed and dated by the named authority. Their full name, job title/position and contact details must be given. Verifications should be made on the front of the certificate, not the back.

Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL)

Your previous experience in areas relating to a course or module of your chosen course with us may be recognised and accredited. If you feel that this may apply to you, you will need to provide us with a portfolio of verified documentary evidence of this experience for review to support your case for accreditation.
