Transfer from Lizentiat

Note: The Fall Semester 2014 is the last semester in which Lizenziat students can receive Annahmescheine (i.e. confirmation slips). Accrediation of coursework in the Bachelor program will thus have to be based on coursework that was completed prior to or during the Fall Semester 2014.

Students who wish to transfer from the Lizentiat to the Bachelor may be awarded up to 60 ECTS towards their Bachelor degree, depending on whether they have passed the respective Intermediate Exams (Zwischen- bzw. Akzessprüfung) in English language, linguistics and/or literature. Students who have not yet passed their Intermediate Exams in the Lizentiat system will be transfered on a case-by-case in consultation with the Academic Advisor. In any case, the following requirements apply to the individual Bachelor study programmes:

120 ECTS Major in English Linguistics and Literature
