Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)


Welcome to Dublin City University’s Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) website. Here, you can find information about RPL, and how it can be used for entry, advanced entry, credit or module exemptions.

DCU is committed to giving value to relevant learning. You can apply to have your eligibility evaluated based on the knowledge, skills and experience that you have accumulated in other ways.

We are here to help you understand what prior learning is, and how it can be used to begin or continue your studies with us.
