Recognition of prior learning

Have the experience, but not the qualification?

At MIT, we understand that learning comes in all forms — that’s why we’re proud to offer study pathways that recognise the value of your previous work, education and life experience.

Our Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) programme is designed for those who already have the on-the-job skills and knowledge, but want to take their career to the next level with a qualification.

With RPL we can measure and match your existing skills against credits in our courses – creating a tailored path of study that will not only save you money, but also help you to complete your qualification faster.

Get the qualification to enhance your career

Whether you’re a business owner looking to grow, or an experienced worker wanting to step up in your career – if you've built up skills, knowledge and previous study achievements, RPL could help you get to where you want to be.

All our faculties offer industry-recognised programmes that are designed to meet job market needs. In our practical, work-focused environment, your real-world skills and experience are seen as an asset — making our qualifications particularly well suited to the RPL learning pathway.
