Credit transfer towards a professional degree
Courses that are not part of your programme's study plan need to have their credits transferred in order to be part of a professional degree in engineering.
There can be programme specific limitations to what can be transferred and what can be included in a specific engineering degree. You can find what your programme specific regulations are in the programme syllabus.
There are two different types of credit transfer for courses that equals a full course:
- Credit transfer for a course that replaces a mandatory programme course.
- Credit transfer for a course that does not replace a mandatory course. This can be done for more than one course, and for more credits than the degree requirements for the programme allow.
Credit transfer of a Swedish course
To apply for a transfer of credits from a course taken in Sweden, you send a request per email to the programme administration at the unit for student service email@example.com. The decision is then made by the programme coordinator or faculty administrator.
- Attach a course description or course plan and the result certificate for any course taken at other higher education institutions than Uppsala university. Attach as a separate pdf file.
- If you seek to transfer credits for more than one obligatory course, please apply once for every subject area (e.g mathematics, computer science, chemistry, physics etc.) to make the administration easier.
