FAQ about mandatory credit transfer
Why am I required to inform the university of my previous studies at bachelor’s level?
If you have already completed part of a bachelor’s programme, you are required to apply for a credit transfer for the passed courses when you apply for admission to a bachelor’s programme at Roskilde University. You must therefore inform us of your previous studies at bachelor’s level.
This requirement is set according to the Ministerial Order on Admission and Enrollment.
Will I be able to get a credit transfer?
You will be granted a credit transfer, if the passed courses from your previous studies at bachelor’s level are considered comparable to the content of the bachelor’s programme that you have been admitted to at Roskilde University. In order to assess if your previous studies are of relevance, we must receive an official transcript of grades of the passed courses and a syllabus for the completed courses.
Please note that if your previous bachelor’s studies count as part of your entry qualification, you will not be able to get a credit transfer based on these studies. This is relevant, if you are required to pass supplementary courses in addition to your upper secondary education in order to fulfil the requirement of an entry qualification.
Why do I need to inform you of the bachelor's subjects that I intend to study?
You must apply for a credit transfer to the complete bachelor’s degree at Roskilde University. The bachelor’s programmes at Roskilde University consist of courses and projects within the programme’s study field, two elective courses, two bachelor’s subjects or a single bachelor’s subject and a bachelor’s project. For more information, you can read the introduction page about our bachelor programmes.
In order to ensure proper planning of your degree, it is important to know if you have considered the bachelor’s subject(s) you wish to study. If you already know which bachelor’s subjects you want to study, please let us know by stating this in the application form.
