Credit transfer and recognition of qualifications from courses
When you return from your exchange studies, you want to be able to transfer the credits from the courses you studied abroad or get recognition by your home university for the qualifications obtained abroad. We will help you with the transfer of credits as soon as you have handed in your travel report.
Please follow the steps below:
- Fill in one of the forms below
- Transfer of credits
- Recognition of qualifications
- Write the travel report
- Inform your coordinator that you have completed all steps
- Your coordinator will make sure that the courses are transferred or recognised
On condition that your studies were at an academic level, credits from your studies abroad will be transferred. The International Office of the Faculties of Humanities and Theology can help you with this. Some beginners’ language courses, sports, calligraphy courses etc. are not considered academic studies. If you are uncertain, check with one of us. The courses you have studied will be registered in Ladok, together with the number of credits they are worth.
Recognition of qualifications
Recognition of qualifications means that the credits you have earned abroad partially or completely replace a course offered at Lund University. This can be done, especially in modern languages. If you want part of your studies abroad, or even all of them, to be recognised as credits at Lund University after you return, it is particularly important that you contact your home department and get written confirmation of this. Consult your study advisor.
If you are a student on a degree programme, it is usually your study advisor/programme secretary who registers your exchange studies in Ladok.
If you have been abroad on the Erasmus programme (studies within Europe), an evaluation form will be sent to your email address and it is compulsory to respond to it.
The International Office would like to know more about your exchange study period. Please upload your travel report in this database. Future exchange students will also appreciate to read the travel reports before they apply.
