Credit recognition

Credit recognition is the process by which credits obtained for different courses of study or awarded for relevant professional experience are included in a student’s academic record. These credits count towards the required study load for the master’s degree.

The process is governed by the general regulations on the transfer of credits for university master’s degrees at the UB (see in particular appendix A1, information in Catalan).
