Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL)
APL is a generic term covering the exemption of a student from a module or modules on taught courses at the university on the basis of prior achievement of the relevant learning outcome, whether certificated or by experiential learning. Wittenborg has systems in place to provide exemptions in EC credits for much of the programme based on Prior Learning, both in education and in the workplace.
Wittenborg University’s Education Department ensures the organisation of the curriculum is carried out as described in the Education & Examination Guides, besides being also responsible for the development and quality control of the curriculum of all the university's programmes through the Education Board. The board, made up of academic members from different areas of the university, is chaired by the university's Director of Studies.
