Credit transfer

As a student at the Department of Biology, Lund University, you have the right to apply for credit transfer from courses taken at other universities. This applies to both Swedish and foreign education – including exchange studies. Fill in the form Credit transfer (docx, 123 kB) and then contact the study advisor Christina Ledje, Christina [dot] Ledje [at] biol [dot] lu [dot] se (Molecular biology), or Lotta Persmark, Lotta [dot] Persmark [at] biol [dot] lu [dot] se (Biology and Bioinformatics). You need to enclose documents/merits with your application. This can be an excerpt from Ladok or "transcript of records". You may be asked to include the course syllabus and literature list for each course.

For exchange studies, special procedures regarding documents/qualifications apply. Always find out in advance what applies to credit transfer of courses from the university you are going to study at. More about credit transfer of exchange studies on the Faculty of Science's website. Before leaving, check how many higher education credits at Lund University the course(s) you are going to study abroad correspond to.

Note that the handling of your application may take up to three weeks. If your application is accepted, the credits will be transferred to Ladok. If your application for credit transfer is rejected, you can appeal the decision to The Higher Education Appeals Board, Lund University, Box 117, 221 00 Lund (more information in the application form).

The documents related to the credit transfer will be registered. When handling this credit transfer application, your personal data will be processed following applicable legislation.
