Eligibility through validation of prior learning

If you do not fulfill the entry requirements through formal qualifications you can apply to get your eligibility evaluated based on knowledge acquired in other ways. This is also known as a validation of prior learning. KMH will then assess whether you have the proficient skills and knowledge required to pursue studies at the course/programme you wish to apply for.

What is prior learning?

By prior learning is meant your accumulated knowledge and experience, which may have been acquired in different ways, for example through formal education, work experience or other kind of training or activities in citizens associations. You can apply for a validation of prior learning to fulfill both general and specific eligibility.
