Memoranda Guidance, Processes and Approval Forms

 Cooperation, Progression and Cooperation + Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)


 Cooperation can cover the following broad areas:

Developing, under the umbrella of the appropriate contract and subject to institutional approvals:

  • Exchange of academic and scientific materials and other information
  • Exchange of faculty and/or staff
  • Exchange of graduate and/or undergraduate students
  • Formal articulation arrangements

 Progression is an arrangement with a PI whereby applicants are considered through the standard admissions process on a case-by-case basis for level 4 (or level 7) entry to a UoP programme. Each student is considered for admission to UoP on a case-by-case basis through a Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL, formerly known as APL/APEL) assessment. Admission to a UoP programme via this arrangement is not an automatic right. Entry to specific UoP programmes may be identified in an annex to the MoU Progression contract.

 Cooperation +RPL is a General Advanced Standing arrangement with a PI whereby applicants are considered through the standard admissions process on a case-by-case basis for level 5 or 6 entry onto any UoP programme. Each student is considered for admission to UoP on a case-by-case basis through a Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL, formerly known as APL/APEL) assessment. Entry to a UoP programme via this arrangement is not an automatic right, and the HE credit transfer takes place once the RPL form is approved by the Associate Dean (Academic) (AD(A)) in the host Faculty.
