Credit Transfer

Attention: Credit transfer of exams completed before admission must be applied for by the end of the 2nd semester at the latest. 

After this period, an application is not allowed anymore. This regulation does not apply to examinations you take during your studies at WU (e.g. during your Semester Abroad) and not to Self-Service Credit Transfer.

Please note, that switching to a newer version of your curriculum, the deadline does NOT start again.

The team of Study Regulations & Credit Transfer (advice on recognition issues, individual studies, merit and need-based scholarship grants) will be available to you personally in the Study Service Center on Monday, 09:00 am - 12:00 pm.

If you wish an individual consultation for special requests, please make an appointment here.
