All students are entitled to demonstrate their competence. The recognition and accreditation of prior competence are initiated by the students themselves. The competence is recognised and accredited by the teacher responsible for the studies or another person designated for the position. The assessment is carried out according to the same assessment criteria and, as a rule, the same grading scale as that adopted for the corresponding study unit or module. The student is entitled to apply for accreditation of prior competence regardless of where, how and when the competence has been acquired. The student may also seek accreditation of competence to be acquired on the job as part of their degree (work-based learning). The student is responsible for demonstrating and verifying their competence and for providing sufficient information.
