These essays will be marked according to standard university-determined criteria and procedures, and a complete portfolio of essays will lead to the issue of a Sarum College Certificate, giving precise details of the topics covered and the grades achieved. This document can then, if the student so wishes, be taken to a higher educational institution as a proof of achievement and as evidence that may, at that institution’s discretion, be taken into account under the Accredited Prior Experiential Learning (APEL) scheme.
