|APEL: route to post-graduate study|
Why is it important? APEL is the means by which students who do not have an undergraduate degree can gain entry onto a masters' level course, such as our master's programme in 3D animation.
For example, an animator with ten years' experience in the industry might not realise they can apply for our MA course in animation, because they need a BA first. In fact, this would not necessarily be true.
We can consider a student's body of work, and their professional career, as a route into post-graduate study, permitting them to meet the necessary qualifications for entry onto a masters' programme.
