Credit Transfer

Most international colleges and universities accept credits from MISU LMU. However, as each institution has its own policy regarding credit transfer, we strongly recommend that students consult their academic advisor about credit transfer approval before applying to MISU programs.

MISU awards credits for its EU Studies programs according to the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). One ECTS-point hereby corresponds to a workload of about 25 hours for each participant. Successful participation in MISU's European Studies programs is awarded with 6 or 9 ECTS for students depndig the program.
