Recognition of your experience in industry (also known as recognition of prior learning (RPL):
If you don’t hold a Level 6 award, and if you have significant experience in industry (medical device, or pharmaceutical industry), then you could apply to GMIT to review your work experience to see if your work experience can be accredited as being the same as a Level 6 award. To apply for a review or for more information go to http://www.myexperience.ie
