A student may be admitted to study at the University through transfer from another home or foreign higher education institution, on the basis of the Rector’s decision, having obtained written consent to the transfer from the home institution. For foreigners, the decision is taken by the Rector at the request of the dean.

3. A student shall be transferred at the student’s application submitted no later than one month prior to the beginning of the semester for which the student is to be admitted to the study. With the admissions application, the student shall be obliged to submit the documentation on the course of study completed at the home institution, confirmed thereby.

4. On the basis of the documentation on the course of study at the home institution, the dean may recognise the learning outcomes achieved by the student and course credits awarded to the student prior to admission to the University.

5. The dean of the receiving faculty shall determine the admissions requirements, including the need to conduct a qualifications test, the number of recognized semesters of study and shall set a list of curriculum differences that the student shall be required to make up for as well as the final dates for their completion.

6. In the event that a qualifications test is conducted, the decision on admission to study through transfer from another university shall be based on the result thereof.

In the event of divergences between the learning outcomes achieved at the home institution and the learning outcomes achieved at the receiving faculty at the same study stage, the student shall be admitted to a lower semester of study than he or she was registered on at the home institution, subject to § 22 section 2. 

 

§ 35
