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 Summer Semester 2023 are available, you will find all the necessary information and documents on this page.
