What is an intra-university transfer?

The intra-university transfer involves the following stages:

  • request for recognition of credits;

  • eventual request for permission;

  • submission of intra-university transfer request.

The procedures laid down for the intra-university transfer request involve the following stages, which must be carried out after you have received and accepted your recognition of credits sheet and after enrolling in the academic year and paying the first instalment of your tuition fees:

  • compilation of the online change of study programme procedure in your Personal Area under the heading > Online student services - Esse3 > Change of degree programme. The compilation of the online procedure is considered as an implicit acceptance of the credit recognition sheet drawn up by the Campus Administrative Office/Department Teaching Offices;
