What is Credit Transfer?
If you’ve recently studied a syllabus as part of a previous qualification, this may mean that you’re not required to take a particular unit/subject of your Apex Professional University Programme degree, if we believe that the subject has been covered in the same breadth and depth. This is called Credit Transfer. It is also sometimes known as Recognition of prior learning or RPL.
Recognition of prior learning counts toward the total number of credit/subjects you have to take to complete your degree. Students applying for credit in any of these categories must submit official transcripts, course descriptions, and supporting documentation to the Office of the Controller of Examination prior to the official awarding of credit. Apex Professional University cannot guarantee acceptance of credit from any of these sources.
You will have to pay a fee, which is non-refundable, for each course that you want us to consider granting Credit Transfer. If we are not able to offer you Credit Transfer, we will send you a letter to tell you that your request was unsuccessful.
What prior learning is likely to be eligible for Credit Transfer?
Your previous study may be eligible to be credit transfer if:
– You have passed exams which compare in level, content and standard to the exams for the subjects from which you want to be exempted.
