Criteria for Crediting Knowledge and Skills obtained before Enrolment
The Faculty may choose to credit a student’s knowledge (obtained in the framework of different kinds of education) if it corresponds to the course content of the Textile and Fashion Design programme. The NTF’s Studies Committee is charged with crediting knowledge and skills obtained before enrolment; it does this on the basis of the student’s written application and the provided certificates or other documents proving the type of knowledge successfully acquired.

When crediting knowledge obtained before enrolment, the Studies Committee will take into account the following criteria:

  • Whether conditions for enrolling into a specific educational course are adequate (required prior education for starting the study programme);
  • Whether the scope of the completed educational course (the number of hours of prior education as compared to the scope of the subject in question) adequately compares with the credited requirements,
  • Whether the areas covered by the prior education programme, which the applicant would like to have credited, adequately compare with the subjects dealt with in the Faculty course.

Acquired knowledge and skills may be credited as a completed study activity if the conditions for taking part in the educational programme were the same as for enrolling into the Textile and Fashion Design programme, if the prior educational programme encompassed at least 75% of the scope of the subject and if at least 75% of its contents cover the same areas as the subject which the applicant would like to have credited. In the event the Committee finds that the acquired knowledge can be credited, it is granted the same number of ECTS points as awarded for the subject in question.
