Recognition of prior learning
What is recognition of prior learning?
The Recognition of Prior Learning is a process whereby students can be exempt from some parts of their chosen programme of academic study by recognition of their learning from previous experiences or achievements as part of the admissions process.
This reduces the number of courses required to complete student’s degree.
Applying for recognition of prior learning
In order to start the procedure of recognition of prior learning the following documentation is required:
- Complete request form and application form
- Certified transcript of records or a certified copy of diploma supplement
- Certified detailed description of the course/programme (content, number of teaching hours, literature, number of ECTS credits, etc.) for which recognition is requested.
Officially attested English translation of the documentation is required if these weren’t originally written in English or Croatian.
The applicant submits their request to the Office of Student Affairs
