As Humak's degree student, you are entitled to apply to have your previously acquired competence credited as part of your studies. This process is called recognition of prior learning, or RPL for short. Prior competence can be acquired through training, at work, industry positions of trust, or leisure activities. This page includes instructions on the RPL and eRPL application.
As Humak’s degree student, you can include previously acquired competence as part of your studies. This process is known as RPL. You may have gained competence through education, work, industry positions of trust, leisure activities, or informal learning. In the RPL process, your knowledge is accepted as part of a degree, a module, or a course as compulsory, alternative, or elective. With RPL, the number of studies you have to take may be reduced and you will not have to study what you already know.
Your competences must meet the competence objectives of the degree curriculum. Therefore, carefully study the curriculum of your degree and identify your competences in relation to the learning outcomes of the modules.
The RPL procedure is illustrated in the picture below. It will help you to understand the principles of RPL, the different stages of the procedure, and the roles of the different actors involved. Please note that at the bottom of this page you will find a more detailed description of the admission rules for languages, CampusOnline.fi studies, military service, and scout training.

Language studies can be accredited:
A) on the basis of language studies completed at other higher education institutions and universities
B) for competence acquired in non-formal education and training.
The accreditation figures for formal learning are based on the certificates issued by the educational institutions. Formal language studies may need to be supplemented by examinations and/or assignments required by the Humak professional language courses.
If a student believes that their informal language skills meet the objectives set by Humak, they can prove their language skills either by completing the Humak course assignments and course examinations or by compiling a portfolio of their previous competence. The portfolio is presented to the language teacher, who will tell the student what will be accepted. The student then applies for eRPL and addresses it to the language teacher. All eRPL applications for languages are registered by the language teacher.
The following competences are accepted as a substitute for language studies included in the degree at Humak:
