Validation of prior learning 

As of 2021, there is a newly established position, as coordinator of validation of prior learning, at the Admissions Office. The coordinator will be a university channel for validation of prior learning in the assessment of entry requirements. 

Recognition of prior learning (RPL) for general entry requirements is processed by the Admissions Office and in most cases, decisions are taken by the Admissions board. Whereas RPL for specific entry requirements is processed by the Admissions Office in consultation with the department or faculty offering the course or program. 

If you have any questions regarding validation of prior learning, please contact the coordinator of validation of prior learning. For more contact details, see Contact information.

Request for deferment of studies

Students admitted to a course or programme have the opportunity to apply for deferment of studies if there are special grounds.
