STEP 3

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) & Credit ACCUMULATION Transfer (CAT)

The Creative Academy adheres to the principles of RPL as set forth by SAQA in the “National Policy for the Implementation of Recognition of Prior Learning” (March 2013) and the “Policy for Credit Accumulation and Transfer within the National Qualifications Framework” (December 2014).

In order to determine a candidate’s accumulated credit transfer the Academic Committee may arrange an interview with the candidate (in person or via Skype) to assess the relevance and standard of prior learning or vocational experience. In compliance with national policy, the Creative Academy awards a maximum of 180 credits (of the 360 necessary to complete a BA qualification) to candidates who successfully provide evidence of an appropriate level of competency and/or experience.

Due to the specialised nature of programmes offered by the Creative Academy, candidates might however be expected to complete specific foundation year courses, despite their completion of a first year course at another institution. In this event, candidates receive financial discount on the tuition costs of their foundation year courses.

RPL is awarded:

  • On the basis of completion, or partial completion of learning programmes in a similar vocational field, on an appropriate NQF level, or
  • professional experience within a relevant vocational field, in the case of applicants that are 23 years of age or older.

The Creative Academy provides credit accumulation and transfer (CAT) to students who wish to transfer from other institutions that offer similar programmes.

In order to apply for RPL/CAT candidates must submit:

  • Application form (select relevant form).
  • Certified copy of ID document.
  • Complete academic transcript of all programmes, courses and modules completed.
  • Portfolio of recent work (produced in fulfilment of the requirements of a programme, course or module, or within a professional capacity).
  • Letter stating a candidate’s motivation for transferring to the Creative Academy.
