Recognition of Prior Learning

Recognition of Prior Learning

You have the option of applying to the Graduate Research School for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) of the Compulsory or Conditional Components of the development activities specified in this handbook, if you believe that you already possess the skills covered by a particular session.  For example, recent JCU Research Masters graduates now undertaking a PhD may be able to apply for RPL for some compulsory components, if they completed those components during their Research Masters.  In the first instance, please contact grs@jcu.edu.au to enquire whether your prior skills may be counted. Please note that when you are granted RPL, you will need to make up the hours in some other professional development activity, since you will still need to demonstrate a total of at least 120 hours of professional development (or 80 hours if enrolled prior to 1 January 2018.)
