Admissions

The admissions process at the American Institute of Applied Sciences in Switzerland (AUS) works towards a balance between the inclusivity and selectivity principles innate in admissions processes around the world. As such, AUS is meticulous in ensuring that students who are accepted have the skills and capabilities to succeed in its programs.

Credit Transfer

The credit transfer system at AUS is based on the principle of Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), defined as a process through which previously assessed and certificated learning is considered and, as appropriate, recognized for academic purposes. It can enable a student to transfer credit gained within one program of study to another program of study at the same time or at a different institution. Credit can be used from a previously uncompleted or completed award. The credit that is transferred can be used, where appropriate, to build towards an award at a higher level or stage.

Should candidates for admissions wish to apply for a credit transfer concomitantly with their admissions application, they are invited to refer to the Credit transfer policy and procedure and include in their application for admissions the documents required for the credit transfer procedure.

Upon being presented with an Offer Letter from AUS, a student will also be communicated any results of credit transfer assessments, including extensive explanation related to the comparability of the courses transferred and those not transferred.
