   How can I get a student card?

   What is Recognition of Prior Learning?
   WIT acknowledges that adults bring a wide range of experience and knowledge to the
   classroom. In some instances, where adults can demonstrate that the quality and
   duration of their experience is equivalent to the learning outcomes of programme
   module(s), students may be entitled to an exemption from particular module(s). This is
   referred to as Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).

   How can I apply for RPL?
   If you wish to apply for RPL, you must compile a portfolio of documentary evidence to
   demonstrate that you have already achieved the learning outcomes of a module or
   modules and would not be disadvantaged by not studying that particular module(s).
   Please send all RPL applications (hard copy only) clearly marked for the attention of
   the 3rd Level Administrator, Adult and Continuing Education, College Street Campus.

     Please Note: The closing date for Exemption applications (RPL) are as follows:
