Credit Transfer


Only courses listed in the signed Credit Transfer Protocol (CTP) form are officially confirmed to be elligible for transfer to HSMA!

The CTP of faculty W needs to be agreed and confirmed before any other Learning Agreement (e.g. Erasmus+ LA)

Gather information about courses

Inform yourself about courses offered by the partner university during the application phase

Use the partner university's website Global University Partners to research specifically the subjects and courses you would like to take abroad. Courses with high similiarities to the courses at HSMA are more likely to be recognized.
