Please read the information about transferring university and the form contained in the link below carefully. The information answers all questions in detail. If you still have any questions after reading the application, please contact our Admissions Office.
In the case of degree programs with admission restrictions, it is difficult to predict in advance whether an application to a higher semester will be successful. Previous experience is also not very helpful, as each semester has different students who must decide whether they want to continue at their current university or give up their places. Unfortunately, we can only fill spaces that become available with students wishing to transfer to our university.
This is why it is important that you try and find other students at the university you want to transfer to who are willing to swap places. Transferring to another university always requires that both students are studying the same degree program in the same semester and have made similar progress in their degree programs. After an agreement has been reached, both students looking to transfer must sign a binding written declaration that they are giving up their places and the universities involved must also approve the transfer.
Students should also check before transferring that their university entrance qualification and their course achievements and examinations are recognized by the university at the new location by contacting the student records office and the examinations office there.
New students seeking to swap their place at university before commencing their studies can only do so after they have enrolled.
The information regarding transferring university also applies to students studying medicine at Erlangen/Bayreuth.
