Accreditation of prior learning (APL)

Accreditation of prior learning is a process whereby, through assessment, credit is given to learning which has already been acquired in different ways, e.g.  with earlier studies or working experience. APL gives  a student an opportunity to demonstrate his/her knowledge and skills.  A student displays with the competence demonstration that s/he manages the course objectives and contents mentioned in the course description. It is possible to participate in the competence demonstration only once before taking the course. A competence demonstration is assessed on the scale from 1 to 5.
