Work or Professional Experience 

In the Master’s Degree in Cybersecurity, optional credits will be recognized for previous work or professional experience, up to a maximum of 10 ECTS and in modules of 2.5 ECTS. As a general criterion, the recognition of credits will be based on the duration of the accredited work or professional experience, provided that it had been developed in companies, institutions or activities in the field of cybersecurity after obtaining the degree with which access to the Master’s Degree is gained. 2.5 ECTS will be recognized for every six months of professional experience, with an accumulative maximum of 10 ECTS.

Specific Degrees

Regarding the recognition of credits taken in specific degrees, only those taken in those master’s degrees adapted to the EHEA taught in the centers participating in this proposal will be considered. Faced with the individual request of each student, the Master’s Academic Committee will study on a case-by-case basis the competencies and training content of the subjects to be recognized and will decide on the appropriateness of the requested recognition.

In particular, for the recognition by the participating universities, a minimum of zero and a maximum of 15 ECTS is established, excluding the credits of internships in companies and the Master’s thesis. It will be up to the Master’s Academic Committee to decide in each case which subjects are recognizable on a case-by-case basis. The maximum of 15 ECTS represents 25% of the total number of credits required to obtain the degree, excluding internships and Master’s thesis, or 1/6 of the total number of credits of the degree.

Official Non-university Higher Education

Credits taken in official non-university higher education courses will not be recognized.
