Transfer of Credits

  • Students can apply to the Faculty for the recognition of credits obtained in previous studies. An official application must be submitted in order to transfer credits. The relevant authority has 30 days to consider the request and issue a decision, which will then be sent by post to your contact address.

    You can apply for credit transfer throughout the academic year, but please note the 30-day period mentioned above. If you want the credits to be counted in the same academic year as your application, you must submit your application no later than 30 days before the end of the summer term.

Transfer of Optional Course Credits

  • If you studied at another university not more than 10 years ago and you finished your studies, you can request transfer of credits from courses you successfully completed during your studies.

    • When requesting credit transfer from your previous studies, you must submit your transcript of records that substantiates the application in accordance with this rule.

    • You can only transfer credits if you graduated or withdrew from your previous university studies. You cannot transfer credits from parallel studies.

    • If you graduated, you can only transfer credits above the minimum threshold of credits necessary for attaining your degree (i.e. BA study: credits earned above the 180 credit threshold for the award of a BA degree) and you must submit graduation certificate / university diploma.

    • If you withdrew, you must submit official confirmation of your withdrawal. The documents must be originals certified by the relevant university.

  • Courses graded "E" (or "3") cannot be recognised.

  • Transferred credits are counted as optional course credits. To find out the maximum number of optional credits that can be counted towards your total credits, please refer to the program's study plan.
