Poland's Higher Education Min. is developing a scheme whereby a student will be able to forego half the required subjects if his professional exeprience to date can count towards his degree. Only those under 25 are eligible. The official reason given for this change is to better adapt one's academic career to market requirements. This should also make it easier to reconcile academic studies with job, family or other personal commitments.

it will encourage this people to learn something more about their profession, so it's a good think. But it should be written on diploma that it's not the same licencjat or magisterium, as normally made. I am quite sure it won't be. Maybe then employers will be asking for marks transcript to see how many years someone has studied.

Utter nonsense. It would make far more sense for it to be eligible to those over 25 - so those who have acquired significant real world experience can apply it to their studies. For what it's worth, the idea is nothing new - it is a common part of UK education, and in Poland, it is common (but by negotiation with individual lecturers).

But it should be written on diploma that it's not the same licencjat or magisterium, as normally made. I am quite sure it won't be.

It is the same - as long as there's a standard process for recognising prior study (for instance, by submitting a portfolio) - then it's more than equal.
