Curriculum and credit transfer for prior Bachelor's studies

Take a closer look at your curriculum to better understand your study and learning goals. The individual descriptions of courses include methods, teachers, timing of the course within the academic year, evaluation criteria and exam types.

This information is especially important if you wish to transfer credits for some previously completed higher education courses, since you need to propose the substitution and discuss the matter with your study counsellor.

If you have questions about accreditation or credit transfer, it is best to contact your  Study Counsellor during 8 – 21 August to avoid the rush during the orientation days.
