Recognition of Prior Learning

Procedures to recognise prior learning (RPL), including non-formal and informal learning, is in an early stage of development in Turkey and there is not a comprehensive and enabling framework at the national level to enable this process to be fully applied. However, within the institutional autonomy there are some implementations at the institutional level for allocating credits for the exemption of some programme requirements. Students who have a certain level of knowledge, skills and competencies in foreign languages and computer are exempted from the relevant course units of the course programme.. RPL is also practiced for students who wish to transfer their studies other higher education institutions including national and international institutions. In such cases students are accepted to the degree programs who had studied previously and were successful , may be exempt from some of the course units upon the approval of the adaptation committee.
Such procedures of recognition are also used comprehensively in practice at our university when deemed necessary. Arrangements for the recognition of Recognition of Previous Learning procedures are outlined in the relevant section of our Education and Examination Regulations, Rules & regulations for Postgraduate Programmes and that of Regulations for Lateral Transfer of Students.
