Entry Requirements

Graduates who have achieved the required grade in the Automotive Technology and Management (BSc Degree) Level 7 degree programme (or similar qualification) are eligible for entry. Equivalent recognition may also be given to applicants on an individual case-by-case basis through the well-established Recognition of Prior learning (RPL) process in MTU.

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.
