AHOT procedure – identification and recognition of competence

The process of the identification and recognition of competences (AHOT) is a procedure, through which the student can get earlier studies or competences or for example work experience included in the degree. Students don’t have to study again skills or other things they have studied/acquired earlier or during the present studies.

Students can apply for identification and recognition of competence throughout their studies and the academic year. There is no limit for the number of credits which can be identified and recognised. However, the thesis remains outside this process. AHOT procedure is always initiated by the student. 

Applying to the degree programmes at SAMK takes place through a system of joint application ( For more detailed information about applying to the Finnish Universities of Applied Sciences, please read those pages.
