Transfer of Credits that have been obtained from other institutions than the University of Bamberg

It is possible to transfer to the Master's program SAS if you have definitively failed a subject that is mandatory to complete in the Master's program SAS (e.g. Advanced Microeconomics) in the original program.

In principle, there is no obligation to recognize examinations that have already been taken. You choose yourself which achievements you want to have recognized. Already completed achievements, which you do not have recognized, can be completed again in the first attempt in the Master's program SAS. If applicable, this also applies to modules that have been definitively failed and to modules with registered failed attempts from your previous studies.

  • Credit for examinations must be awarded promptly upon enrollment in the EES degree program.
  • Bachelor modules can generally not be credited for Master modules!
  • For students changing programs
    • within the University of Bamberg, it is not necessary to contact the individual subject representatives to obtain recognition confirmations. After all, they are the same courses (e.g. "Advanced Microeconomics" or "Fundamentals of Econometrics").
    • Students changing programs from outside the University of Bamberg have to ask the respective departmental representatives to confirm the recognition of externally completed courses. The module handbook EES will help you in this regard.
  • To receive credit, please use the credit form provided by the Examination Committee and submit it to Dr. Felix Stübben together with a performance overview of your previous studies.

For each 30 ECTS points of credited examination achievements, you will be upgraded by the Bamberg Student Office by one semester.
