Until fairly recently this form of learning was almost totally ignored by academia as far as assessment was concerned. By converting informal learning into certificated learning, APEL provides cost-effective routes to qualifications. Other types of credit differentiation In awarding APL, the decision has to be taken as to whether the award is for credit or for exemption from study. Is there a maximum amount of APL I can claim?

In order to protect students from a high initial outlay against an uncertain outcome, there is a multi-stage fee structure for APEL programmes.

It is envisaged that there will be a growing emphasis, in the years ahead, on the accreditation of work-based learning as a source of academic credit as financial pressures on individuals and organisations encourage the switch from full-time study to other modes of learning. Unlike other forms of assessment it doesn't judge someone's evidence of competence solely by the credentials or qualifications they have achieved, although this can form part of their claim.

Vital to the success of any APEL system is effective documentation for students. Assessors for the APEL programmes include faculty who are highly experienced in this field. Step 3: Attach all the documents required together with a letter of motivation explaining your situation. For example, it is likely that general credit more than three years "old" at level 3 or level 4 honours level in computer science will require considerable scrutiny to ascertain the amount that is now available as specific credit. If successful, both types of claim will cut down on the time it takes to complete your course. While the University does not charge a fee for the consideration of APEL applications, we are aware that some higher education institutions do charge a fee to cover the cost of the application and assessment process.
