Credit transfer

Credit transfer/pre-approval of credit transfer

A credit transfer means that you can replace an activity in your study programme with another activity.

A credit transfer is granted when the approved activity has been passed.

A pre-approved credit transfer is granted before the activity is passed. Hence, the study board guarantees that you will get a credit transfer when the pre-approved activity has been passed.
