Validation of Prior Learning

If you lack formal entry requirements but still feel you have the necessary prerequisites for entry to a programme/course, you can apply for a validation of your prior learning. Prior learning may for example include work experience or previous education.

To apply for validation of prior learning, you need to complete a form and write a personal letter explaining your individual situation. You also need to up-load supporting documentation that details your previous education, workplace experience, involvement in organizations or other activities that you feel should be taken into consideration.

Please follow these steps in order to apply:

  1. Apply for your programme(s) / course(s) on
  2. Complete the form Application for Validation of Prior Learning (pdf) and write a separate personal letter.
  3. Upload the form and all supporting documents: follow these instructions on how to upload documents.

The information you upload will then be processed by the Admissions Office at Dalarna University. Each application is reviewed separately and the assessment is individual. You will receive a response in your account (My Pages). Do not send anything directly to Dalarna University.
