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 second-cycle master’s degree study programme of Maritime Studies. 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.
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.
