How to take advantage of entrepreneurship competence in higher education studies?

To mention just a few examples, you can earn credit for business activities, work, engagement in student organisations or other recreational activities!

You can take advantage of your existing entrepreneurship competence by converting your knowledge and skills into ECTS credits through the recognition and accreditation of competence. In higher education institutions, this is referred to as recognition of (prior) learning

You and your teacher can agree in advance how you can acquire competence related to entrepreneurship or entrepreneurial activities outside your studies. This is referred to as accreditation of learning demonstrated in some other manner

Remember that, as a student, you must be active in order to receive ECTS credits!
