Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR)

An individual assessment of your competences.

PLAR stands for Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition. Perhaps you never completed your upper secondary education? Perhaps you have gained knowledge, skills and competences by working as an unskilled worker/independently, through periods abroad, by taking classes or summer courses etc., being in positions of trust, doing volunteer work, or perhaps you have gained experience in an entirely different way.

An assessment of your competences could result in entirely new career opportunities. We would like to look at everything you have learned and achieved and determine whether it could be equated with the formal admission requirements for the study programme you wish to start on. Read more about PLAR and please notice the deadline.
