Accreditation of Prior and Experiential Learning ("APEL"/"VÕTA")

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is also referred as Accreditation of Prior and Experiential Learning (APEL)
APEL is a possibility to recognize prior learning (incl. continuing education) and professional work experience for completing curriculum.

The aim of APEL is to develop connections between lifelong learning and different levels of study,

acquired knowledge, skills and experiences.

APEL can be used

  • as part of studies
  • in changing the curriculum
