Faculty of Health and Social Care - Accreditation of Prior Learning

If you have undertaken previous learning you may be exempt from some modules within your chosen programme. 

This means that you may be able to complete your studies in a shorter time by transferring in credit through Accreditation of Prior Certificated Learning (APCL) or through submission of a claim for Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL):

Accreditation of Prior Certificated Learning (APCL) is where you have previously gained academic credit for relevant modules or programmes. 

Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL) is where you can gain academic credit for work experience.

You are encouraged to contact either the Programme Leader or the Faculty Credit Co-ordinator should you wish to discuss potential options with them.
