Students of another medical university in Hungary may apply for a transfer to a corresponding training at Semmelweis University.

For those who wish to transfer from an ongoing medical, dental or pharmaceutical science training abroad, the regular recruitment procedure rather than ‘transfer’ is recommended due to the usually vast difference between the curricula. For further details, we suggest to check our yearly updated Academic Bulletin.
Transfer of credits for equivalent subjects is possible after admission by recruitment. See Article 17 [Transfer] in our Study and Examination Regulations.

Transfer applications can be submitted online via SEMAPHOR system from early May.

The deadline of the application is June 15th of each year. Students are eligible if the conditions for dismissal are not met in the previous establishment.

Decision about transfer applications is made by the committee competent in educational and examinational affairs in the light of the student’s academic achievement and other parameters The number of admitted transfer students is limited by the available capacity of each faculty. If admission by transfer is refused, the student may commence studies at Semmelweis University only after a successful admission through a regular recruitment procedure. If the transfer student does not have a continuous legal relationship until his/her registration at Semmelweis University, then the decision on the transfer application is annulled by the committee competent in educational and examinational affairs in accordance with Article 57 (6) of the Act on National Higher Education.
