There are two main application forms that you may need to complete if applying for RPL.
RPL Module Exemption application form – this is the form to complete if you are applying for an exemption in a module/s based on prior certified learning (. If you are applying using a combination of certified and non-certified learning you should complete the Experiential application form). You can complete this form if you have applied for, or accepted a place on a TUS Programme and wish to be exempt from a module.Fill out Module Exemption Application Form here
Please note: This form does not relate to using RPL to meet the admissions requirements of a programme. If you are a prospective student seeking admission to TUS and you do not meet the required admissions criteria you may apply to be admitted based on recognition of prior learning, including experiential learning and will need to complete the Experiential application form below.
Experiential application form (Portfolio of learning) – this is the form to fill out if you are applying for RPL (admission, advanced entry or exemption) based on non-formal or informal learning. If you are applying using a combination of certified and non-certified learning you should complete this form. This is an opportunity for learners to reflect on their learning to show how this aligns with the course or module learning outcomes.Fill out Experiential Application Form here
Applicants who do not meet the academic entry requirements may be able to use RPL to support their application for admission to a TUS programme.
Applicants who wish to get academic advise on admission to a programme using RPL should contact the relevant Head of Department.
Module content is accessible through the relevant academic department
