SETU Carlow operates a Recognition of Prior Experiential Learning (RPL) scheme whereby applicants may be considered, based on relevant work and other experience, for exemptions from course modules and advanced entry. As critical reflection on teaching and learning practices is an integral part of this programme, applicants should be currently involved in (or envisage being involved in) an active teaching role. All applicants will be considered on a case-by-case basis. SETU Carlow reserves the right to require applicants to attend for an interview to determine their suitability for the programme.
