Entry requirements

To be eligible for the programme you must:

  • Hold a level 7 or level 8 degree, or equivalent.
  • Be working in a relevant sector (e.g. healthcare, allied health, education, law, HR, management or equivalent). As there is an emphasis on well-being of self and others, you should ideally be working in a setting where you can apply your learning.

Recognition of prior learning (RPL)

If you do not have an undergraduate degree at level 7 or above you may still be eligible to apply through recognition of prior learning (RPL). RPL is the assessment of knowledge, skills and competence previously acquired.

Learning occurs in many contexts which include work, involvement in social and community activities, or learning through life experience generally. RPL does not give credit for experience as such; rather it considers the learning that was acquired as a result of the experience.

RPL may be used to gain:

  • Admission to courses/programmes where a person may not have obtained the standard entry requirements.
  • Exemptions from course modules which duplicate the learning outcomes an individual has already demonstrably acquired through prior learning.

Recognition of prior learning (RPL) pathway is outlined here.

If you wish to apply for recognition of prior learning, please complete the essay requirement as per assignment descriptor outlined in the document below.
