The strategic mission of APEL Centre is to widen access to higher education by granting recognition to individuals with prior experiential learning for the purpose of admission and award of credits. The Centre ensures that all its initiatives and practices adhere to the regulations outlined by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA).
