Credit Transfer

An Introduction

Going for study abroad and to get the foreign degree is in mind of many aspirants but many times because of various constraints like finances and even acceptance to go at such young age can be a hinderance.

LPU offers its students a unique opportunity to get an international degree by taking an option of Credit Transfer. Under this opportunity student can study part of the program (generally two years for Under Grad and 1 year for master) at LPU and complete the rest of his/her degree at an LPU foreign partner university from USA, UK Canada or Australia. In such case students get the final degree from the partner University.

Credit transfer is done through a very careful mapping of courses so that credits earned at LPU can be transferred to host University. Students use credit transfer to assure that courses they complete will not have to be repeated at the institution to which they are transferring.
