Recognition of Prior Learning Payment Options

In addition to direct deposit, credit card, and education loans there are three other funding methods you may not be aware of…

1.Instalment Payment Plan

Our instalment payment plan give you the flexibility to pay for your qualification(s) over three months, instead of all at once.

How does it work?

  • RPL Instalment Payment plans are available on any amounts $995 and up.
  • You pay the first instalment when you enrol, then the balance over the next two months… It’s up to you whether you pay weekly, fortnightly or monthly.
  • If you want to pay your qualifications off quicker, fantastic! There are no early payout fees associated with this plan.
  • An electronic copy of your qualification(s) will be issued seven days after your final instalment is received. Your hard copies will be mailed at the same time.
  • You can pay any way you like as long as payments are made as agreed – direct deposit, credit card or call through and speak to our fabulous team on 1300 793 002.
