Entry Requirements

Entry Requirements
Applicants must have achieved a minimum Level 7 Quantity Surveying qualification or equivalent. Where an applicant has not completed a relevant Level 7 programme, equivalence is assessed through the formal Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process used in MTU.

Note: Delivery of this programme is subject to sufficient number of applicants.

What is RPL?
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is when formal recognition is given for what you already know prior to starting on a programme or module. With recognition of prior learning the focus is on learning and not on experience as such. You can apply for RPL in any MTU accredited programme or module. Programmes which are accredited by professional bodies or any external awarding bodies may have their own procedures for RPL which you should refer to.
