Recognised Prior Learning

Students who hold a recognised UK Level 7 related qualification or have completed related postgraduate modules at an accredited institution and wish to gain advanced standing into a postgraduate programme may apply for RPL (Recognised Prior Learning) provided that the learning outcomes of their award satisfy those of the equivalent levels of the Master’s programme for which they seek admission. The recognition and hence transferability of credits is subject to LJMU’s RPL Policy and requires the submission of official transcripts and module descriptions.
