Transferring to Media and Culture
Students with an unfinished Bachelor's degree from another university cannot transfer their previously obtained credits to shorten their programme. All prospective students have to apply as a new student and start in the first year. In some cases, you can register previously obtained credits (up to 12 EC) as an exemption for electives. Only if previously passed courses actually overlap with required courses from this programme, the Examinations Board can grant you an exemption. The overlap needs to be proven with course descriptions from the other university and a transcript.
