When transferring between programmes, the following criteria apply:

  • Fulfilling the enrolment criteria into the new study programme;
  • The number of available places;
  • The years and semesters in the previous study programme in which the student has fulfilled all the necessary requirements and which may be fully recognised;
  • The minimum number of years or semesters the student must pass if they wish to graduate in the new programme.
Transfers from higher education professional study programmes+

Direct transfers are not allowed.

Transfers from first-level (undergraduate) programmes to the university undergraduate programme Geotechnology and the Environment+

Transfers to the university undergraduate programme Geotechnology and environmental engineering are possible if the candidate:

  • fulfils the enrolment criteria for the university undergraduate programme Geotechnology and environmental engineering;

Enrolment into the second or third year of the current university undergraduate programme Geotechnology and environmental engineering is possible if:

  • the NTF Senate recognises all the candidate’s years and semesters in the new programme;
  • the NTF Senate recognises the candidate’s exams or other study requirements (when it comes to programmes with credit points, these are also recognised) from the previous programme; it also determines the necessary differential exams and other study requirements that the student needs to pass in order to enrol in a particular year or finish his or her studies according to the new programme;

Transfer applications are reviewed on an individual basis and in accordance with the procedure set out in the Statute of the UL and the NTF Rules.

Transfers from the old university undergraduate study programme (UNI) to the new first-level (UN) Geotechnology and the Environment study programme+

By transferring from the old to the new study programme, the student’s education according to the study programme in which he or she was enrolled is terminated; the student’s education then continues in the framework of the new study programme. The requirements that the student must fulfil when transferring from the old to the new study programme are laid down below in the sense of recognising the already fulfilled demands according to the old programme and fulfilling the requirements according to the new programme. This does not include unfulfilled requirements that the student has neglected to fulfil in the first, i.e. the old study programme.

Transfers depend on the degree of knowledge of the content and skills contained in the courses that – in the framework of the old programme – ensured the total and adequate presentation of the content of the geotechnical profession. When doing so, it must be taken into account that completing existing, old study programmes is linked to so-called general subjects that form part of the educational process mainly during the first two years of the undergraduate university programme.

Carrying out transfers+

The possibilities offered by in-depth knowledge acquisition within individual narrow areas of the geotechnical field are defined and laid down in the context of the new study programmes, making the following transfers possible:

  • After successfully completing the first two years of study according to the old university (UN) programme – this includes the fulfilment of all requirements (all the exams, field work and practical work or seminars) – it is possible to enrol into Year 3 of the new undergraduate programme, under the condition that the NTF Senate, following the recommendation of the Department of Geotechnology, Mining and Environment, provides a list of additional exams that the student must pass before enrolling;
  • It is also possible to enrol into Year 3 of the new undergraduate university programme (UN) if the student has completed all requirements from the first three years according to the old higher vocational college programme and passed the additional exams requested by the NTF Senate following the recommendation of the Department of Geotechnology, Mining and Environment.
  • Transfer to Year 2 of the new university undergraduate study programme (UN) is possible if the student fulfils all the requirements from the first two years of the higher vocational college programme and passes the exams requested by the NTF Senate following the recommendation of the Department of Geotechnology, Mining and Environment.
  • Students who have successfully finished their studies at other departments and at similar faculties, for example the Faculty of Civil and Geodetic Engineering, the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, the Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Technology, etc., may enrol into individual years of the first-level (UN) programme after completing the additional requirements determined by the NTF Senate following the recommendation of the Department of Geotechnology, Mining and Environment.

Transfer applications are reviewed on an individual basis and in accordance with the procedure set out in the Statute of the UL and the NTF Rules.
