APL (Approved Prior Learning)

Have you previously studied Level 4 or above? If you have, you may have the appropriate experience and be eligible to gain credit for this on your course at Halesowen College.

APL is short for ‘Approved Prior Learning’, and can be used to contribute as experience credits for your higher education level qualification. Your credits could be mapped to specific modules you will need to complete for your qualification at Halesowen College, and may remove the need for you to study them. To discuss this further, please contact the College’s course leader.
