12. When you have returned

Outgoing exchange students

Once you have returned to Sweden from your studies abroad, the matters of grading, credit transfers and travel report await you.

Transcript of Records from the host university and credit transfer

Upon completion of your studies, the host university will send your Official Transcript of Records, your certificate of studies. It is your responsibility to ensure that it is sent to you. This often takes 1–5 months after you have completed your studies at the host university. Many universites prefer to send the transcript directly to your coordinator at home.

In that case, the following address can be used:

Lund University,
Faculty of Social Sciences International Office
Box 117
SE 221 00 Lund, Sweden
tel: +46 46 222 48 43,  +46 46 222 72 04,

Your coordinator will contact you when it has arrived. Some universities do not send a paper version but choose to send a digital version instead. Do not forget to give access to the transcript if this is the case, so the credits from your exchange studies can be transferred to Ladok. Credit transfer is processed by the study advisor/programme or the faculty’s international office. As soon as the credit transfer is complete and entered in Ladok, CSN can access the information.
