Credit for prior knowledge
Students can request to have their prior knowledge or coursework credited toward the current programme. There are three possibilities:
• Recognition of coursework (only credited toward required modules). The coursework has to be comparable to the modules of the Master’s programme in terms of content and level.
• Recognition of study-relevant professional experience (0-12 ECTS credited toward general core electives). We only consider relevant professional experience gained in the fields of data analytics and data engineering.
• Recognition of job-related specialist knowledge (only credited toward required modules). This award of credit is handled very restrictively.
Accreditation applications are considered after registration for the Master’s programme. They can also be submitted after the start of the programme.
Preparation for studies (optional)
By registering for the course, students gain access to a specialised online learning platform for data scientists (www.datacamp.com). They may also benefit from attending introductory courses in preparation for their studies, e.g. on the Python programming language or on using the R software. This can be especially useful for those with little or no knowledge of programming. The Master's programme does not require any specific preparations otherwise.
