Are you basing your case on prior formal learning?

If you have previous exams that are relevant to your current studies, then locate and save the syllabus and past exam papers (if available) along with your transcript of results and any certificates. Create PDFs of the transcript of results, and syllabus and past exam paper.

We must see original transcripts.

Locate the syllabus from your current studies at http://courses.cit.ie/ by searching with the module code, this will be listed on your timetable. Paste the learning outcomes into page 7, allowing a box for each one. Follow with your prior learning.

On assessment these RPL cases are awarded an exemption (X) if the learning outcomes are met. Full module fee is payable upfront. However, a refund less (€50 processing fee) is allowed once the result is ratified at the module exam board meeting.
