How to apply or transfer if you already have relevant experience or qualifications

Thinking about transferring to LIBF from another university? Or want to apply but don’t meet the academic requirements? We may be able to recognise the work you’ve already done so you can start your journey to success with LIBF.  

Thinking of transferring institutions? We may be able to count the credits you've earned towards your LIBF degree.

Taken a non-traditional study path? We can take your professional experience into account.

Want to achieve your degree faster? Your prior learning could mean you're exempt from some modules.

The process

If you’ve studied before or want to transfer, it only takes a few simple steps to find out if your prior learning can be recognised.

Step 1 – Find an LIBF online degree that aligns with your ambitions and submit your application. 

Step 2 – Talk to one of our Study Advisers about your personal circumstances and qualifications.  

Step 3 – Think you meet the criteria? Go ahead and complete our Recognition of Prior Learning form. 

You may need to provide the following:  

  • your CV with job descriptions detailing your roles and responsibilities 

  • academic and professional qualifications and training/CPD activities (if they were gained in the last seven years) 

  • reflective statements explaining how you apply knowledge and skills in the workplace (we will provide more information on this). 

Step 4 - Once you’ve provided the relevant information, we’ll let you know if you’re eligible to study with us or exempt from any modules from your chosen degree.
