You may be granted credits for your previous academic and professional qualification through Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL) scheme. You can take individual modules as 'free standing' as part of your continuing professional development (CPD). An independent work-based learning module enables you to study around your individual CPD and workplace needs.
