Summary
Summary  
Here is a summary of the possibility of RPL based on your responses:  
Unit Likelihood  
 
 
 
 
No = You will not be able to gain an RPL, you will need to enrol in the unit and complete it normally.  
Unlikely = it is extremely unlikely you would be successful in an RPL application based on your responses. We highly recommend to complete under normal enrolment, however the choice is yours.  
Likely = it is quite possible that you could apply for, and be granted, RPL for the unit. However this is based on you providing suitable and satisfactory evidence in addition to completing a quizz, experience video, work history, etc.  
Possibly = depends on what units you completed for the relevant course/s. We will need to check your academic transcript to confirm you have completed the required unit/s.  
Please complete the details below and click the 'submit' button. If it looks like you can apply for RPL for a unit/s, we will be in touch soon to advise on the next step.
