Credit recognition procedure (for MSc programmes, only)

If you have received your previous degree in the field of economics, you can expect the automatic recognition of the necessary credits when entering the master level training. We do recommend, however, that you get in touch with the Study Department of our Faculty before submitting your application for the admission procedure (see at Contacts!).

The list of college and university level trainings belonging to the category of economics programmes in the traditional (“undivided") training system can be downloaded from here.

If you have received your previous college/university certificate in a field other than economics, and have not completed specialised further trainings, either (e.g. MBA), you may have the opportunity in the so-called credit recognition procedure to justify your skills specified as prerequisites to start an MSc training. Presently the legal regulation on the recognition of credits is defined in Decree No. 18/2016 (5 August) of the Ministry of Human Resources.

The skills specified here can of course appear in the titles of different subjects in various training programmes, so it is your responsibility to specify subjects that you have successfully completed and that you wish to have recognised in the procedure. The decision on acceptance of the credits will be made by the competent committee of the University of Pécs, of which you will be notified in writing, keeping the deadlines set in the admission procedure.

How does credit recognition works in practice?
