Recognition of prior experiential learning (RPEL)
You may also use skills achieved through other than formal education to substitute degree studies. You may have achieved skills through e.g. non-formal learning (further education, short programs at the workplace, adult education training, etc.) or informal learning (work practice, positions of trust, learning through free time activities, etc.). The focus is not on experience as such but on the knowledge and skills achieved through it.
Apply for RPEL using the appropriate form. Describe at least the following:
- how much and what type of experience you have
- what kinds of skills you have achieved through your experience
- how the skills correspond to the learning outcomes of the courses and/or study modules proposed to be substituted
- which courses and study modules the skills-based recognition concerns.
