Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

Where you’ll get credit where it’s due.

Transferrable credits. Because you deserve to be recognised for past learning.

Certificate and Diploma study 

We believe you should be recognised for past experiences, so we offer flexible entry based on previous studies and work experience. If you’ve taken a course somewhere else, we’ll give you credit for it. If you have relevant work experience that will help you with a specific course, you can apply to have that recognised too. Simple!

To have your previous experience recognised follow these easy steps:

  • Read then complete the RPL form
  • Bring this completed form to campus with you on your first day of study with all the relevant information that includes the subjects you want to get credit for, transcripts and subject outlines for past courses.
  • Hand the form to the course coordinator for review

Remember, it’s important that you complete this form at the start of your studies because we can’t give you credit later in the course.    

Degree study

If you have relevant prior formal education or industry experience then you may be eligible for advanced standing towards your chosen degree. Martin Higher Education is committed to individual assessment of possible advanced standing to ensure an ideal student outcome that minimises duplication of learning while ensuring essential course and life skills are obtained.
