Transferring to Media and Information

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. You may sometimes be exempted from courses of your new study programme, naturally depending on the courses that you passed in your previous programme. If you would like to be eligible for this, you must submit an exemption request to the Examinations Board of your new degree programme, after you have been admitted. You need to prove the overlap by providing course descriptions from the other university, and a transcript.
