The post-graduate imaging programme would also be open to applications from other students who have successfully completed relevant modules from another external institution via the traditional APCL/APEL route in line with the current academic regulations. Accreditation of prior certificated learning (APCL) and accreditation of prior experiential learning (APEL) refer to the process by which previous formal certificated learning and informal non-certificated learning can be awarded credit towards modules within the sphere of Higher Education. Credit for prior learning, whether certificated or experiential, may count towards the requirements for the named award. A student seeking credit (whether certificated or experiential) will normally be required to apply for such credit on receipt of an offer of a place on a programme. Requests for APCL from students already on programmes will be considered provided that the student submits the request in the session before she/he would normally begin the module/stage for which she/he is seeking credit and in the case of requests for APEL at least six months prior to the beginning of the session before she/he would normally begin the module(s)/stage against which she/he is seeking credit.
