When you apply for admission to a higher education degree programme, you are obliged to state whether you have previously passed courses on higher education degree which you have not completed. Aarhus University needs this information to assess whether you can be granted credit transfer. In other words, whether (some of) the courses you have previously passed can replace parts of your new degree programme. Credit transfer is generally only granted for courses at the same degree programme level (Bachelor’s/Master’s degree level), but academic level is the most important factor.
It will take a few months to process all applications, so we cannot inform you of whether you will be granted credit transfer prior to commencement of your studies. We therefore encourage you to participate in all the courses for which you are registered in the first semester. If you, later on, are granted credit transfer for a course for which you are registered, your registration for the course and course exams will be withdrawn. You will be notified via e-Boks when it has been decided whether you will receive credit transfer.
You may be asked to submit documentation, even if you have already uploaded documentation in connection with your application for admission on the programme. This may be due to the fact that the uploaded documentation does not contain all the information that is necessary for the study administration to be able to process your application. In this case, you will be contacted via your AU email address.
Below, you can see what is necessary for your application to be considered.
If you have questions about credit transfer when you commence your degree programme or wish to send us documentation, please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you fail to provide information and/or if you have provided incorrect information about courses you have passed on a higher education degree programme on which you were previously enrolled, this may influence your chances of continuing on your degree programme.
