Please note that we unable to approve recognition of learning (ROL) for face-to-face courses where a student route visa is required to study in the UK. This is because we can only sponsor full-time students for a student route visa, and applying ROL for credits previously achieved reduces the study load to below full-time. International students are therefore encouraged to consider our distance learning options if you wish to apply for ROL.
