Validation of Prior Learning

If you lack formal entry requirements but feel you have the necessary prerequisites for entry to a programme/course, then you can seek validation of your prior learning. Prior learning may include work experience.

To demonstrate your collective competence, you must submit supporting documentation that details your previous education, workplace experience, involvement in organisations, and other such activities.

To apply for validation of your prior learning, follow these steps:

  1. Apply for your programme(s)/course(s) on
  2. Complete this form.
  3. Upload the form and any 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.
