Transfer from one study programme to another is defined as termination of studies in one university programme and continuation of studies in a new university programme. (The criteria for transfer between study programmes (Official Gazette of RS, no. 45/94)).
Previously acquired education will be recognised if the conditions for enrolment in the previous programme are similar to the conditions for enrolment to the Materials and Metallurgy programme, if at least 75% of the scope of courses in previous education are identical to the Materials and Metallurgy programme and if at least 75% of the teaching contents correspond with the course to be recognised. If previously acquired education is approved and recognised by the Study Commission, the courses are allocated the same number of ECTS as the courses in the Materials and Metallurgy programme.
The second cycle master’s degree programme in Materials and Metallurgy provides enrolment for students from:
- other second cycle master’s degrees in the field of materials and metallurgy or related courses (technical and natural sciences)
- For graduates of university programmes in the field of materials and metallurgy or related study programmes (technical and natural sciences) that were adopted after 1994 and
- For graduates of higher education programmes in materials and metallurgy or related courses (technical and natural sciences) that were adopted before 1994.
In the 2nd year of the second cycle master’s degree programme in Materials and Metallurgy, a student from other programmes may transfer if he/she:
- Qualifies for enrolment in this study programme,
- There are places available,
- Has fulfilled study obligations from the previous year of the original programme and
- If the volume of content of the second cycle master’s degree programme of Materials and Metallurgy does not differ from the 1st year of the original study programme by more than 30 ECTS.
In accordance with the Rules of examination and evaluation of knowledge at the UL NTF, the Study Commission may prescribe an additional student workload (differential examinations) and the period within which the student must carry out these obligations.
If the student enrols to the study programme in Materials and Metallurgy from master’s programmes conducted by UL NTF, the Study Commission can accept certain “expert” performed exams from the previous programme on account of optional courses within the UL NTF.
