Transfer of Credits and Accreditation of Prior Learning at TAMK
Students can apply for credit transfer for prior studies at Master's level, or ask for acreditation of prior learning. Bachelor Degree studies that form a general eligibility requirement for the education may not be transferred.
You can read more on the Credit Transfer and Accreditation process at TAMK in the ECTS Study Guide.
- Transfer of Credits (prior university studies) means that students can transfer prior higher education studies to the degree studied at TAMK if they meet the competence objectives of the degree programme.
- Accreditation of Prior Learning (acquired competence) means that students may propose a skills test to demonstrate their competence acquired through e.g. work experience, on-the-job training, courses, or hobbies, or in vocational secondary education.
