Recognition of prior learning (RPL)

If you are chosen as a degree student to Metropolia, you may seek identification and recognition of Open UAS courses (RPL, AHOT in Finnish) into your degree. Recognition is always decided by the receiving UAS.

There is no direct RPL in Open UAS. That's used only for degree students. In Open UAS the RPL includes always a pedagogical solution of the teacher, where the student demonstrates his or her competence in a way defined by the teacher. In this way the studies are considered completed in Metropolia and the normal Open UAS fee is paid. The RPL doesn't justify any price reductions.
