Evaluation examination for transfer students

According to the regulatios of the Albert Szent-Györgyi Medical School "transfer is possible solely if the student obtains at least half of the credit points assigned to the 6-year medical program at the diploma issuing institution, the University of Szeged". On the basis of this rule transfer can be granted to maximum 3rd year of the medical programme.

Transfer students are required to submit their application by May 31st. As transfer students are subject to undergo a special Credit Transfer Procedure within the application period, transfer requests submitted after this date cannot be evaluated due to organizational reasons. These applications will be automatically considered for year 1.

Please note that the regular Credit Transfer Procedure for Freshmen is conducted at the beginning of the first semester of the new academic year. Therefore it is not suitable for the evaluation of upper year transfer requests, only for the assessment of exemption in certain courses.

Transfer applicants might be also required to take evaluation examinations of certain compulsory subjects. Online evaluation examinations are organized individually.

Detailed information about credit transfer, examination dates, exam registration etc. will be sent to the applicants in Dream Apply after completing the online registration.

Decisions on acceptance are within the competence of the Credit Transfer Committee and the Academic Board of the Medical School.
