Recognition of Prior Learning
In the framework of the integration of the European Higher Education Area (Bologna Process), the University uses the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) to weight subjects of its courses. Thereby students that wish or are eligible to transfer credits when enrolling to the MSc, are allowed to transfer a maximum of 30 ECTS.
The program recognises formal prior learning activities of students. Specifically, a student that has undertaken formal education at postgraduate level in relevant fields may have up to 30 ECTS credits recognised (amounting to one third of the program and 50% of the taught part).
At present, no non-formal or informal prior learning recognition is applicable for the program. It is noted that the University is evaluating a relevant regulation for non-formal and informal learning and the Department will re-evaluate its current position once the said regulation is in place.
