Student Transfer

Recognition of study results and credit transfer:

Study results accumulated from another training level, another training discipline or curriculum, another course or from another institution are carefully considered by FIT Scientific Council (FSC) to make sure they are equivalent to the courses listed in the curriculum of the IET program; once accepted by FSC, the results including scores and credits are eligible to be transferred and recorded in student’s academic transcript.

FSC considers the equivalence in terms of standard student outcomes, learning content and study load, course assessment method and quality assurance conditions for program implementation according to different levels as follows:

  1. Recognition and conversion for each course
  2. Recognition and conversion according to each group of courses

The maximum number of credits recognized and transferred account for no more than 50% of the total credits of the IET curriculum.

The procedures for transferring students and transferring courses are based on the yearly admission regulations of LHU, typically including two following cases:

Case 1: Transfer from Faculty A to Faculty B within LHU
