Request for higher placement

In order to continue your studies in a higher subject-specific semester, you need a so-called “notice of transfer semester(s) awarded” (Semesteranrechnungsbescheid) for each subject. As a rule, said document is issued by the respective examination office which is responsible for this subject at LMU Munich. By means of a notice of transfer semester(s) awarded, the credits you earned thus far in a different degree program are converted to a corresponding number of semesters.

If a higher placement is part of a change of subject, we do not need the request for higher placement. Please enclose the “notice of transfer semester(s) awarded” (Semesteranrechnungsbescheid) with your request for a change of subject.

The deadline for the placement into a higher semester has already passed. As soon as the dates and deadlines for the Winter Semester 2023/24 are available, you will find all the necessary information and documents on this page.
