Accreditation of prior learning (APL)
Accreditation of prior learning (APL) is an opportunity to be given credit for learning and skills already gained before joining one of the Faculty's courses. This means you can avoid duplicating previous learning and it can help you to:
For example, you may have already studied individual modules or short courses or gained a relevant qualification at another institution. Or you may have achieved relevant learning through work experience, volunteer work, or as part of a training course.
You can find out more about APL in our guide to deciding on your level of study, Where should I start? (PDF 242K)
All dates, venues and modules are correct at the time of publication. However, the Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education reserves the right to alter any module dates or venues as circumstances arise. Every effort will be made to notify all applicants of any changes as soon as possible.
