Recognition of Prior Learning

Students  can be exempted from a course unit if they can present a qualification that proves they have passed an equivalent course unit at another institute of higher education (EVK-procedure) or when they have acquired the competences of the course unit elsewhere, for example as the result of a professional practice, leisure, self-study,…. These competences acquired outside a classroom, in a non-formal setting, can sometimes also lead to a total or partial exemption from a course unit. Any student wishing to have his previously acquired competences recognized has to draw up a portfolio (EVC-procedure).
