Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) or advanced standing may be granted to students with prior tertiary education and experience relevant to the intended programme of study. Applicants must also provide a strong portfolio showing substantial creative and technical potential.
The admissions team will recommend a credit transfer based on academic transcripts, appropriate industry experience and the applicant's ability to communicate strong commitment to the intensive nature of the course for which they are applying. RPL must be requested at the time of application.
Applicants wishing to be considered for RPL for previous studies at other New Zealand or overseas tertiary institutes must provide certified copies of academic transcripts and detailed course outlines. Qualifications completed more than five years from date of application cannot be recognised.
All photocopied documents (results, transcripts, certificates, etc.) must be certified as true and correct copies. Documents that have not been certified will not be accepted.
