Have You Completed Previous Studies?

Do you have previous studies that you would like to include in your university studies and degree? Determine the correlation between your existing competence from prior studies and the new studies at UTA to ascertain where you should begin your studies. There is no point in completing the same studies twice.

Prior qualifications and studies can be recognised as part of a degree or they can be otherwise taken into account. Additional information has been collected below for various target groups. Rules, instructions and limitations concerning credit transfer for previous studies have been compiled under the Essential information and During your studies sections of the Study Guide.

Please read the instructions, act accordingly and, if necessary, contact the appropriate body. 

Bachelor’s, master’s and licentiate of medicine degree students

It is easier to begin and plan studies when you know which studies encompassed by the degree you have already completed. It is advisable to determine the situation with prior studies well before beginning the new studies. Assessments are primarily conducted for admitted students only.

If you are beginning studies exclusively aimed at a master’s degree, the studies you indicated in the application phase have already been accounted for and the possible supplementary studies have been determined based on them. If the degree studies include content that is familiar to you, find out whether or not credit transfer is possible.

Studies completed through the UTA open university are already listed in the study register.
