Recognition of prior learning (RPL)

As a student at Diak, you can apply for the recognition of prior learning and credit transfer regardless of where, how and when your prior learning took place.

In the RPL process, the student’s existing competences are compared with the intended learning outcomes of Diak’s curriculum.

The process is only available to degree students who are registered as attending students.

Students usually apply for a credit transfer towards a whole module or course.

The RPL process generally takes place at the start of the degree programme in conjunction with the approval of the personal study plan, but the application can also be submitted at a later stage.

Application schedule

The next RPL application period is 24 August–13 September 2020. Applications will be submitted via MyDiak.

You can find more information about the RPL process in MyDiak, Guides.
