How do I apply for recognition of my work experience?

You may be coming to Unitec with skills and knowledge that have not been formally assessed. Assessment of Prior Learning (APL) allows you to have these assessed and credited toward your programme.

APL may take into consideration skills and knowledge  acquired from (but not limited to):

  • Relevant learning that has arisen from life experience,
  • Formal or informal work experience,
  • Formal and informal education or training which may or may not have been assessed.

This process will require discussion with a Programme Leader or Curriculum Leader. For more information please visit your nearest Student Central Centre.
