It is the responsibility of each exchange student to get their courses approved by their home university. The home university will decide how many credits each FEN course is worth to them. Students should provide the full syllabus or course program to their home universities in order to facilitate this decision. The FEN International Office cannot decide, on behalf of the students´ home universities, how many ECTS or US credits each course at FEN is worth.
