Annex C Accreditation of prior learning
The University gives notice that it reserves the right to review its accreditation of prior learning policy each year. The rulings below relate only to applications submitted within the period 1 September 2011 to 31 August 2012.
This Annex should be read together with Section 2 of these Regulations.
Students must note that no accreditation of prior learning will be granted unless specific application has been made in accordance with the instructions given on the website www.londoninternational.ac.uk .
Under Section 2 of the Regulations, students who have successfully passed one of the modules detailed in paragraph 5 below may apply for automatic accreditation of prior learning for up to one module. Applications for accreditation of prior learning will be considered only from students who satisfy the entrance requirements for registration for the Postgraduate Diploma or MA degree in Citizenship Education, History Education and Citizenship and History Education.
Students who have other relevant qualifications may also apply for accreditation of prior learning. The University will consider such qualifications individually, in the light of the module outline, the level of examination performance and the equivalence of the course.
In order for an application to be considered a student must normally have successfully completed the whole of the module/award on the basis of which they are claiming accreditation of prior learning and have already received the final mark. An application from a student who has not yet received their final mark/award will be considered under the rules governing APL at the time that the mark/award is finally made and not at the time that the application was submitted.
A fee is not payable for applications for accreditation of prior learning where APL is awarded automatically. A fee is payable for all applications which are given individual consideration.
A student may apply for automatic accreditation of prior learning from one unspecified option module from the Postgraduate Diploma or the MA degree in Citizenship Education, History Education and Citizenship and History Education if they have successfully passed any of the following relevant modules from the Institute of Education's MA degree in Education (Citizenship/History/Religious Education) programme:
