Based on the principles described in § 2 point 8 Study Rules and Regulation of MUG dated 27.03.2023 when making the decision to admit a student by transfer from another domestic or foreign university, the Rector takes the following into particular consideration:
  1. the admission limit valid for the specific field of studies, if the transfer takes place to year one of studies;
  2. the minimum score and the recruitment prerequisites determining eligibility for admission to the specific field of studies at the University in the academic year of the student’s admission to another domestic or foreign university from which they are to be transferred;
  3. the average grade for the whole period of studies, attained by the candidate at the other domestic or foreign university, calculated in accordance with § 24(2) and 24(3) of these Rules – (at least 3.50);
  4. the University’s organisational potential, including its ability to provide the candidate with an opportunity to make up for any curricular discrepancies – if the number of candidates exceeds the admission limit, the average grade referred to in point 3 above determines the admission priority.
