*The Department of Nursing and Midwifery in the University of the Highlands and Islands has a tailored arrangement for Recognition of Prior Learning for our Advanced Practice programmes.
For the MSc and PgDip, it is possible to apply for 80 credits of exemption for qualifying modules, instead of the normal 60. Not only that, clinical skills and prescribing modules undertaken at lower than postgraduate level, for example at SCQF level 9, can be upgraded to postgraduate level by submission of additional academic work, to be assessed by the department's academic team. These arrangements can allow for considerable financial and time savings.
Finally, once confirmed at the start of the programme that RPL is possible, completing the process can be postponed to a convenient point in the programme, rather than having to be done before commencement.
