Entry Requirements

Entry Requirements
Applicants should have a minimum of a Level 7 architectural technology or engineering or construction related qualification.

In order to take elective module INTR8030 Virtual Design & Construction, applicants are advised to have completed the MTU Certificate in Building Information Modelling Technologies Special Purpose Award (or have the equivalent prior learning). Alternatively, elective INTR9017 Infrastructure Asset Management is available.

Equivalent recognition may be given through the Recognition of Prior Learning process on an individual case-by-case basis to candidates who have not achieved this academic standard but who can demonstrate significant relevant professional experience in the Built Environment discipline.

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.
