    Hello, I am trying to find out if anyone here can share experiences and / or resources related to work experience assessment / evaluation that might count towards credits.

    I just came across this (searching for something else about UNISA), from IACIDL:

    WORK EXPERIENCE - Individuals who have acquired learning through non-formal education, such as work experience, self-study, volunteer activities and other life experience, can be assessed and subsequently awarded credit towards an educational module or course at Unisa.

    Curious to see if anybody here has gone through that (or a similar) process at IACIDL or other services.

    I do not have a completed Bachelors degree, and I am mostly interested in a flexible and affordable path towards MS/MBA - type programs. I'd like to maximize acquired knowledge via courses, training, (IACET CEUS) and work experience.

    A Masters by Research (at UniSA for example) looks like a good option, from a flexibility & cost perspectives. Is anybody aware of other options that might accept a consolidated portfolio that includes work experience (formal or volunteer)?, if so, what is the typical % that they would be willing to consider?

    Thanks in advance!
