Some of the study programmes at our partner universities are fully integrated into the degree programmes (Modern China BA, Chinese Studies MA, China Language and Economy MA) as part of, for example, the ECLC programme or the Summer School in Changchun. For these programmes, no credit transfer procedure is required, as achievements form part of the respective degree programmes. The accreditation of achievements from other stays abroad is also possible upon application. It is however advisable to take advantage of the University of Würzburg’s student advisory service before beginning a stay abroad.
