What is RPL?

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) system in South Africa - a system in which lifelong learning; access and redress in education, training, development and work; and progression along learning and work pathways are of central importance.

The Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process through which formal, non-formal and informal learning are measured, mediated for recognition across different contexts and certified against the requirements for credit, access, inclusion or advancement in the formal education and training system or workplace.

(Source: National Policy for the Implementation of RPL: par 30).

The aim is to make it possible to obtain formal recognition for knowledge gained throughout life, such as in workplaces and own reading or experiences.

Many students do not realise how much university actually costs aside from the learning material, transport costs, accommodation and living expenses. A bursary is a monetary reward from an institution to a student based on their academic performances and personal circumstances. The main aim of a bursary is to reduce the financial constraints or avoid them altogether. There are many different types of bursaries available and the student is not always required to apply for them.
