Credit Transfer

In first and second cycle studies

As a student at the Department of Mathematics, Faculty of Science, you are entitled to apply for transfer of credits from previous studies. This applies to studies completed both in Sweden and abroad, including exchange studies.


For your application to be reviewed, you must be admitted to and currently studying at the Department of Mathematics. The rules governing credit transfer are to be found in Chapter 6, Sections 6–8 of the Higher Education Ordinance.


Your application consists of a form together with documents/qualifications. Remember to apply in good time for your credit transfer. The processing of your application may take up to eight weeks.


You apply for credit transfer via a special form that is provided by the director of studies or the study advisers at the department. We recommend that you complete the form together with one of the study advisers or the director of studies, who will handle your application when it is complete.


You must attach certified documents/qualifications to your application.

  • For a completed course: course certificate and course syllabus, including required reading list
  • For an incomplete course: certificate of enrolment and course syllabus, including required reading list

Special procedures for the documentation/qualifications apply to transfer of credits from exchange studies.
