APPLICATION FOR RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING (RPL)


Please complete the information in order for Open Window (OW) to process your RPL request.

The RPL process is an academic process which takes around 8 -10 weeks (provided that all the relevant information has been uploaded with the RPL request form).
Your registration can still continue until the RPL is completed, at which point your registration will be updated to reflect the RPL outcome.
Should you wish to appeal your RPL outcome, applicants are allowed one chance to appeal the decision.

All RPL requests received will go through OW’s Admissions Officer to ensure that there is academic alignment with the external qualification’s subjects’ and OW’s subjects of specialisation’s qualification outcomes.

RPL requests close two weeks before the start of the OW academic year.
