Dear colleagues,

We would like to invite you to share with us your views and experience with Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) policies, approaches and challenges at the level of individual higher education institutions.

The survey focuses on recognition of prior non-formal and informal learning for both access to higher education and provision of credits for academic purposes. Some of the definitions are provided in the annex here, while the questions of the survey can be found here.

There are 23 questions, which should not require more than 20 minutes of your time to answer. The survey format allows returning back to your answer to edit them until the survey is officially submitted. If you would like to have your answers ready before responding to the survey, you can have a look at the questions in advance by downloading the PDF version here.

Most of the answers are not compulsory to allow you to address only the relevant parts of the survey. Should you have any questions or comments, please, contact EURASHE secretariat at We will keep the answers discrete and show the summative results or quotes without any direct reference to respondents.

Thank you for your interest and willingness, we would be ready to share the results of the survey with those interested. Please find more information on the RPLip project here. On behalf of the RPLip project partnership
