Credit transfers (Doctoral Education)

In accordance with the Higher Education Ordinance, a student who is attending a university within the country can transfer the credits of completed courses to another university.

Credit transfers cannot be carried out if there is a substantial difference between programmes. The course credits which you are planning to transfer should essentially correspond to the course that you are supposed to be credited for. Students are also allowed to have relevant knowledge obtained in a working environment taken into consideration.
