When you apply for a study programme, you must meet certain specific admission requirements. These are subjects that you must have passed at a certain secondary school level.
If you do not meet the requirements, the University may recognise you as having equivalent academic qualifications if you can prove that you meet the admission requirements in some other way.
Who can apply for recognition of equivalent academic qualifications?You can apply for recognition of equivalent academic qualifications if, for example, you have passed a type of test in the subject area in question in the context of another course of study, through which you have acquired academic qualifications equivalent to the specific admission requirements.
Please note that you can only apply for an exemption based on the above criteria. Therefore, you are not eligible for exemption because you have relevant work experience, have been affected by exceptional circumstances, or because you haven’t had the opportunity to take the required courses.
When we assess your qualifications, we compare them with the academic level and content of teaching in the corresponding upper secondary subjects (STX/HF/HHX/HTX).
