The Recognition for Prior Learning (RPL) is the process of recognising learning obtained through formal , non formal and informal learning other than the mainstream certification.

Such learning can also include the acquisition of competencies gained through educational institutions such as schools, colleges, workplaces, life and work experiences, or even through personal interests.

During the RPL process University applicants will be assisted to collate a portfolio of their learning experiences, that can be verified and validated.  This portfolio will be developed together with a Student Advisor (RPL Coordinator) and would typically include:

·         A detailed C.V.

·         Certificates confirming participation in training

·         The scope of duties performed to date

·         A report from an internship/apprenticeship agreement

·         Professional certification

·         Articles or other works written by the applicant

·         Opinion issued by the employer or manager or leader of an organisation

·         Evidence of participation in a project and the scope of the duties involved

·         Evidence of participation in foreign exchange periods

·         Examples of work performed (eg. prepared reports, budget sheets, plans, etc.)

 

In addition to submitting a learning portfolio, an RPL applicant may also be invited to:

·         Undertake a project

·         Sit for an interview/oral examination

·         Undergo simulation/practice observation

·         Undertake a proficiency test in English

 

Prospective applicants are to contact the Students Advisor Services eight months prior to the deadline of the call for applications for courses at the University of Malta in order to start the RPL process and identify the learning outcomes achieved through prior certified and experiential learning.
