Procedure and Criteria on the Recognition of Knowledge
Students may apply for the recognition of knowledge acquired at different educational institutions if this is in content and scope compliant with the content and objectives of the first-cycle study programmes at the Faculty of Maritime Studies and Transport. The body appointed for the implementation of the procedure to recognise the knowledge previously obtained is the Academic Affairs Committee of the Faculty of Maritime Studies and Transport. The recognition procedure starts on request by the candidate who submits an application, certificates and other documents that serve as evidence of the previously acquired knowledge and are compliant with the Rules on the Procedure and Criteria on the Recognition of the Knowledge and Skills Obtained through Informal Learning, accepted by the Senate of the University of Ljubljana at its 15th Session of 29 May 2007. If previously obtained knowledge can be recognised, it may be evaluated with the same number of ECTS awarded to the relevant course.
The following criteria are applied by the Academic Affairs Committee in the recognition procedure before enrolment:
- eligibility for enrolment into different forms of education (required previous level of education),
- comparability of the scope of education (number of hours of previous education if compared against the number of hours of the relevant course),
- comparability of the content of previous education if compared against the relevant course.
The previously acquired knowledge may be recognised as a completed study requirement if the enrolment criteria met include at least secondary school qualifications, if previous education covered a minimum of 75% of the relevant course, and if previous education covered at least 75% of the content of the relevant course.
If these conditions are met, the previously acquired knowledge may be granted the number of ECTS awarded to the relevant course.
A specific case for the recognition of knowledge and skills acquired before enrolment is the recognition of "Work Placement for Nautical Students", "Work Placement for Marine Engineering Students", and "Work Placement" for students of the first-cycle professional degree study programme of Transport Technology and Transport Logistics if the student has been employed by an organisation from the maritime or transport industry or state administration in the transport-traffic-transport logistics sectors for at least one year.
In this case, evidence of employment that indicates the duration of employment and main activities of the employing organisation needs to be submitted.
