External credit-rating is the process by which the University makes a judgement about the volume and level of academic credit that can be awarded for modules or training programmes offered by other institutions or agencies.

These modules or training programmes are predominantly subject to the regulations and quality regime of organisations offering such training.  Students who successfully complete them will be entitled to claim that amount of credit against module(s) at the University through the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process.


Proposal for an external credit rating - complete and take this form to your Faculty approving committee and to PWG.
