RPL will enable me to obtain the qualification by recognising of my prior learning. I am not in a position to dedicate 3 years full-time to study. I wanted to obtain the degree as quickly as I could so I could enhance my career options.

Transitioning from a Portuguese-speaking country with differing qualification standards initially posed a challenge to my acceptance, but through the recognition of prior learning experiences, I successfully navigated this hurdle.

I want to encourage others to believe that this is the path for them and that they not only deserve it but have worked towards it, their entire life.

The RPL process offered a transformative opportunity for me to leverage my practical experience as a valid substitute for the conventional academic qualifications I lacked.

"I am an Academy Award nominated screenwriter. Despite this, I was interested in the MA as I thought it would be a great opportunity to be taught by professionals, learn some new writing techniques, meet fellow writers, and get invaluable feedback on various writing projects."
