You are planning to spend one or two semesters abroad and would like to clarify which of the credits you earn during this can be transferred to your studies.
All mobility students at the Faculty of Business, Economics and Informatics must conclude a credit-transfer agreement before starting their mobility semester. This is a binding agreement that specifies whether the credits from the individual modules are eligible for transfer.
For more detailed information on filling out the credit-transfer agreement, see below ("Clarification of eligibility for credit transfer"). You will find the forms you need for this in the Downloads area. This procedure applies to all agreements of the Faculty and the University, to independently organized mobility, and to the CH-Unimobil program (mobility within Switzerland).
SEMP (formerly ERASMUS) exchange students must also conclude a learning agreement. The learning agreement is an important factor in obtaining grants, but it does not have any bearing on the eligibility of transferring credits to your studies at our Faculty.
Regarding transferring credits from a mobility semester, please first read the information in the regulations (framework ordinance and program regulations):
The review can take up to four weeks.
Clarification is handled in a formalized and timely manner before the start of a mobility semester, through submission of a written credit-transfer agreement (see Downloads).
Filling out the credit-transfer agreement
You will need to submit the official transcript of records from your host university to the Dean's Office.
If the official transcript of records from the host university has already been sent directly to the Dean's Office, this will automatically launch the credit transfer process.
You will then receive the definitive notification of credit transfer in writing from the examination delegate.
All coursework that is listed on the official transcript of records from the host university and that is eligible for credit transfer will actually be transferred and listed in the notification of credit transfer.
Please note, if you will not complete the mobility semester until shortly before you are due to obtain your degree, it is important to remember that the official transcript of records from the host university must be submitted at least 4 weeks before the registration deadline in the Student Portal.
