Students at the Faculty of Law of the University of Zurich (RWF UZH) can transfer credits earned at other higher education institutions or at other faculties.
In principle, only assessments that are at a comparable level and no more than ten 10 years old (see Section 11 paragraph 3 of the Framework Ordinance of RWF UZH, RVO) will be considered for credit transfer.
Assessments completed at a different university can be transferred to the value of a maximum of 90 ECTS credits towards a Bachelor’s degree (Section 16 RVO) or a maximum of 30 ECTS credits towards a Master’s degree (Section 22 RVO).
Credits from modules with the same or similar content can only be transferred once towards a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree (clause 3.1 paragraph 3 of the Guidelines on Transfer of Credits B Law, clause 3.1 paragraph 3 of the Guidelines on Transfer of Credits M Law).
