Credit Transfer

Students are expected to do equivalent courses at their host institutions for credits earned on the study abroad program to be transferred to UB. Students are therefore advised to get their courses approved by the HOD before departing. It is the responsibility of the student to furnish the department with all the relevant information to facilitate the approval of courses. Students are to submit a signed course approval letter from the department to the Study Abroad Coordinator in the International Office.

NB: Failed courses will not be transferred.
