Transfer of course credits

Courses which have been completed at a foreign university may be included in a degree at Uppsala University. Courses taken at other Swedish universities can usually be included in a degree from Uppsala University without any decision on credit transfer. For more information, contact the degree unit when you plan to take out your degree.

Foreign courses in economics you wish to include should be at a level comparable to Economics B or Economics C. For courses in economics, you should apply to the Department of Economics. Contact Associate Professor Stefan Eriksson.

Before your departure, it is advisable that you make sure that the courses you plan to take will be approved by the Department of Economics. This kind of inquiry should include information about course content, reading list, level and length. Please note that it may take a few weeks to process such a request.

Transferring course credits towards your degree is done after your return. The form on the link below should be used. An official record of completed courses should be enclosed with the application. The application should include information in Swedish or English about course content, reading list, level, length, and system of credits and grading. Please note that it may take a few weeks to process such an application.
