MU Project Lead for IUA RPL National Project


Carol works as the Institutional Project Lead for the National Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) Project in Higher Education. Recognition of Prior Learning is a process which can potentially allow applicants to Maynooth University gain admission to a programme of study or to gain exemptions from some parts of a programme based on prior learning that has been obtained through formal education, work, or life experiences. RPL underpins the concept that learning is lifelong and creates accessibility to higher education for those with a variety of learning experiences.
