Credit for recognised learning (CRL)

At Curtin Singapore, we grant credit for units within your course based on your previous study by way of Credit for Recognised Learning (CRL) – formerly known as Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). If you are eligible for CRL, you may be exempt from completing some units, with the possibility of finishing your degree in a shorter amount of time.

CRL is awarded to all types of students and for all types of study, including:

  • Polytechnic diploma
  • Advanced diploma, diploma or foundation qualifications from an AQF-recognised institution
  • Undergraduate and postgraduate degrees from tertiary institutions
  • Units/subjects at a tertiary institution

To apply for credit based on tertiary units not studied at Curtin University, please lodge your course application along with the official academic transcript with marking key, at the time of application to Curtin. Any granted CRL will be reflected on your Letter of  Offer. You do not need to enrol into units for which you have been granted CRL.
