Recognise Me

Get recognised for your qualifications and training

Recognise Me is a unique service which considers your previous work experience, qualifications and skills and analyses whether you may be exempt from studying certain modules or even a whole level (year) of a degree, saving you valuable study time!

The service allows us to assess whether your experience in your job, previous qualifications or training can be translated into module credits (the elements that make up a degree course) or make you eligible for direct entry onto the second year of a Foundation Degree or Honours Degree (Top-Up).

Current students

Please speak to your course tutor regarding your interest in Recognise Me. They will need to ensure you have access to the Recognise Me service via NCG online. From there you will be able to submit your claim for approval. Once the claim has been received it will be presented to a panel who will examine your claim. You will be notified of the outcome via email.

If you are not yet enrolled but are interested in studying a degree course and would like to see if you are eligible for exemption from certain modules or a whole year of study, please complete the enquiry form at the bottom of the page and a member of our team will be in touch to discuss this further with you.

Lee Redmayne - FdSc Computer Forensics (now Cyber Security)

Due to my industry experience I was able to gain credit for modules as my skills and experience were already sufficient. This meant I didn't have to repeat things I already knew. This helped me save time by completing the course quicker.

Alessia Dimeo - FdA Education and Training (Maths and Numeracy)

After working in retail for a number of years I decided on a career change. Newcastle College recognised both my City and Guilds Certificate in Teaching and previous experience which enabled me to enrol onto level 5 of a teaching Foundation Degree.
