WHAT IS RPL?
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is when formal recognition is given for relevant learning already obtained prior to starting on a programme or module. That learning may have been attained in a formal, non-formal and informal experience or context.
Formal Learning refers to learning delivered by education and training providers for which formal certification has been awarded.
Non-Formal Learning is usually acquired through planned activities (such as short courses, workshops or seminars) but does not usually result in a formal award.
Informal Learning takes place through life and work experience and is usually referred to as experiential learning. It generally refers to learning that is unintentional or unplanned where the learner will often be unaware of how a particular experience is contributing to their knowledge and/or skills.
Maynooth University can assess your previous learning for two main purposes;
Programme Admissions may be allowed through the recognition of prior formal, informal and/or experiential learning. Successful applicants are granted access or, in some cases, advanced access to their chosen programme.
Module Exemptions/Credits may be granted based on prior formal learning at Maynooth University or another institution.
