APEL for Credit Award, known as APEL.C was developed by MQA to support the lifelong learning by recognizing the value of learning that takes place beyond the formal classroom settings as well as learning that occur throughout work and life experiences; regardless of when, where and how it was acquired.
APEL.C provides the mechanism to recognize the individual’s prior experiential learning that is relevant and specific to a course within a programme of study. The credit award is granted on the basis of knowledge and skills acquired through non-formal and informal learning.
To support the Malaysian Education Blue Print for Higher Education 2015 to 2025 as a Nation of Life Long Learners; the Malaysian Qualification Agency (MQA) has created the Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning for Credit Award - APEL C. It is a pathway into Higher Education programmes by recognizing individuals who have acquired non-formal and informal learning in their work and life experiences.
