What is Yoop?

Yoop is an easy-to-use tool for mapping entrepreneurship competence and integrating it into higher education studies.

The Ministry of Education and Culture and the rectors’ councils of higher education institutions UNIFI and ARENE encourage higher education institutions to develop practices for the recognition of (prior) learning and the accreditation of learning demonstrated in some other manner.

Special attention has been paid to the recognition and accreditation of entrepreneurship competence of students in higher education.

Together with UNIFI and ARENE, the Ministry of Education and Culture has recommended that entrepreneurship competence acquired by students previously or outside higher education studies should be seen as a resource to be included in the students’ degree. Processes for the recognition of (prior) learning and the accreditation of learning demonstrated in some other manner must be developed and enhanced. Yoop responds to this need.

You can find recommendations, models and tips for your work on this page.

Recommended measures

The recognition of (prior) learning and the accreditation of learning demonstrated in some other manner still require further development in higher education institutions. Here you will find general recommendations that are mainly appropriate for both purposes.
