Documents relating to Transfers, Top Ups and Recognition Of Prior Certificated Learning (RPcL) and Prior Experiential Learning (RPeL) Policy.
Transfer to Newman University
Newman University welcomes students wishing to apply or transfer to Newman University with prior learning or experiential learning.
Both the University application form and the UCAS online application form allows for application to all the years of a course. Newman University will consider the application and request confirmation of results and/or experience in the same way as an applicant applying for a HEI place for the first time.
All applications for entry with advanced standing are considered through the RPcL/RPeL process, which works within the spirit of national credit transfer agreements.
The University will also seek to assist any students seeking a transfer into the University’s programmes from another provider where a programme is being closed or suspended and will consider the academic progress and credit gained by any students seeking to transfer to the University for this reason.
Transfer to another university
Newman University also seeks to support those students who decide to transfer to another institution and the Academic Personal Tutors will work with the individual student to assist them in ensuring that they have all the necessary information they will require to transfer elsewhere, subject to the requirements of the Student Loan Company with regards to funding.
The University also issues transcripts of results to each student on all programmes within the University and students may request a transcript at any time via their mynewman portal to assist with their transfer.
Should the Student protection plan need to be used the University will endeavour, where possible, to ensure that all current students are enabled to complete a programme to be closed (teaching out). If it is not possible for a programme to be taught out, the University will assist the students to transfer to other providers where appropriate, including transfer of credit and academic progress. Students will be informed of their options. The University will provide all necessary information, advice, guidance and support to facilitate students in deciding which option to follow.
In the exceptional event of a programme closing at a validated partner, the University will make every effort to support the students concerned including providing advice and guidance and supporting transfer requests to other institutions and providing access to programme within the University for which the students are suitably qualified.
