STEP 5 – Assessment and Outcome


Once the evidence has been verified, the learning evidence, plus the completed RPL Application form if required, will be presented to the education centre or department for assessment by the relevant academic unit. The outcome of the assessment process will be communicated to the applicant “within a reasonable period of time”, as per the RPL guidelines.

Documents/ forms:

  • Once the evidence has been assessed, and a decision has been made, the learner will receive notification of the outcome by email or post.
