Recognition of prior learning

The University Recognition of Prior Learning policy has been reviewed in line with the QAA's UK Quality Code for Higher Education on Assessment, published in November 2018.

The Recognition of Prior Learning policy sets out the policy and process for applications to be considered from students who wish to transfer to the University of Sussex with credit achieved at another University. The policy also sets out the process for Sussex students who have left the University to reapply to the same course or a different course.  The application process and criteria are set out in the Recognition of Prior Learning policy [PDF 313.91KB]
