Recognition of Prior Learning

At IADT, we accept applicants to our courses who may not hold the required qualification, but who may have proven relevant experience and whose academic background may be non-traditional.

Students wishing to apply for admission to courses on the basis of accreditation of prior learning must follow IADT’s Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) procedure:

  • Completion of application form
  • Identified academic work
  • Preparation of a dossier of evidence
  • Internal assessment (for some courses applicant is interviewed). 

If the applicant is offered a place, standard registration procedures then apply. Applicants wishing to apply for admission to courses on the basis of RPL should contact our Admissions Office on admissions@iadt.ie or +353 1 239 4621 or eoin.kelly@iadt.ie.
