Obtain a diploma that recognizes your skills
Do you work in an area where you do not have a degree, but consider that your professional experience, acquired skills and level of responsibility are comparable to that of a degree-holder?
An Accreditation of Prior Learning can enable you to obtain the diploma (or degree) corresponding to your skills.
Your Accreditation of Prior Learning rights
“Any person, regardless of their age, nationality, status or education level, who can justify at least one year of experience in direct relation with the targeted qualification, can apply for a Accreditation of Prior Learning. This qualification, which may be a diploma, degree or vocational certificate, must be listed on the National Professional Qualification Register (RNCP).”
“Qualifications obtained through Accreditation of Prior Learning have the same value as those obtained through study.”

Accreditation of Prior Learning is above all a process of verification, evaluation and confirmation of a candidate’s skills, by a jury panel. The panel verifies that your acquired experience corresponds to the skills, knowledge and aptitudes of the diploma / degree that you wish to obtain.
Accreditation of Prior Learning therefore involves a significant amount of work to describe the skills acquired in relation with the degree or diploma in question.
The Telecom SudParis Accreditation of Prior Learning panel will base their decision on a detailed dossier that you must create.
The Accreditation of Prior Learning process requires a high level of personal investment. Before beginning, we advise you to:
1/ Clarify your motivations and your personal and career goals
2/ Create a detailed CV describing the skills acquired and employed in each of your roles
3/ Check the course program and reference document for the qualification in question, to understand the activities involved and skills, aptitudes and knowledge required to exercise these activities.
4/ Then, check if your experience corresponds to the qualification’s requirements.
Telecom SudParis offers a service to support you in creating your dossier.
