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.


Create and align CTP

Fill and sign the Credit Transfer Protocol (CTP) form before departure

  • Attend the faculty's Credits & More-Workshop which is offered in the first third of each semester. Use the materials provided in the workshop in TIW Info.
  • Complete a Credit Transfer Protocol (CTP) for each course as part of the LA+CTP
  • Discuss the prepared documents with Team IW by requesting feedback or an appointment.
  • Upload the fully completed LA+CTP, signed by Team International W, in the application area in TIW Info.


Update and align CTP

In case changes to course selection are required after arrival at partner university

  • Coordinate the changes with Team IW and update the LA+CTP
  • Upload the updated LA+CTP, signed by Team International W, in the application area in TIW Info.


Complete and submit CTI

Fill and sign the Credit Transfer Implemention (CTI) form after your return

  • Upload the mandatory experience report in your application area in TIW Info.
  • Fill the Credit Transfer Implementation (CTI) form for externally earned credits available in TIW Info.
