Recognition of Work Experience


As an alternative to the internship required by your study programme, you may request that your work experience is taken into account and attributed credits towards your degree.

A prerequisite to receiving internship credits for your work experience is that the latter is relevant to the objectives of your study programme. The decision to attribute internship credits to your work experience is made by the Course Council of each Faculty.

Requirement: 1-month work experience = 1 CP. If for example, the internship required by your degree programme attributes 6 credit points, your work experience must be 6 months at least.
