Credit transfer for exchange studies

When you have completed your exchange studies you can apply for credit transfer of your courses to your degree at the Faculty of Science. Decisions on credit transfer are made by the department.

Point systems in other countries

Different countries use different point systems. If you have studied at a host university in the EU (or in Iceland, Norway, Switzerland or Turkey) the ETC system applies. This means that 1 ETC point is equivalent to 1 credit.

Applying for credit transfer

Your host university sends the Transcript of Records (ToR) to your coordinator here at Lund University (a person at either External Relations or the faculty office). The coordinator then sends on the information to you and your department, which decides on the credit transfer. Before making a decision, the department also needs your course syllabi, which you are responsible for submitting. Once the decision has been made, you can collect the original papers or have them sent to your home address.

Remember that it is only the  number of points that is credited and registered in Ladok. You can use you ToR from the host university as a supplementary document for your degree certificate on completion of your studies.
