Recognition of Knowledge

The Faculty of Arts can recognize knowledge, skills or competences gained by the candidates if they correspond in part or in whole with general competences or objectives of the course determined by an individual study programme in terms of content and level of difficulty. Knowledge, skills or competences acquired through formal and informal education or empirical learning can be recognized.

When recognizing knowledge:

  • school reports and other documents (recognition of “atypical school reports”, portfolios, certificates attesting to the completion of courses and other forms of education) are taken into consideration;
  • products, services, publications and other works authored by the students (the possibility of fulfilling study obligations, such as exams and tests, with the assessment of the products, such as projects, inventions and patents, developed by the student before enrolment) are assessed;
  • knowledge gained by the student through self-education or empirical learning (the possibility of fulfilling study obligations, such as exams and tests, without being present at lectures, in practical classes, at seminars) is assessed;
  • relevant work experience (e.g., recognition of practical training and other teaching units of the programme based on working practices and experience) is taken into consideration.

Knowledge gained prior to enrolment in the university study programme of English Studies can be acknowledged only as a fulfilled study obligation. On the basis of the criteria for the recognition, the Faculty of Arts examines students’ individual documented applications by means of the established procedure in accordance with the provisions of the Statute and Rules and Regulations of the Faculty of Arts.
