If you are a university student and still dreaming of studying in a foreign University, then credit transfer from Bangladesh to abroad is an opportunity to make your dream come true.
Credit Transfer is system where a student can have the opportunity to study in another university by transferring his/her remaining credit from current University. Basically a lot of students in Bangladesh go for credit transfer in different universities within Bangladesh. It is a very easy way to avail the opportunity of studying in a different university without giving year loss. It lets the student to study the same course in the same curriculum but in a different university where the culture and atmosphere is different.
When the matter is credit transfer from Bangladesh to abroad its always amazing for a student to study in a completely different nation and culture. Though higher education in abroad has become a common affair for Bangladeshi student. Every year thousands of students go to abroad from Bangladesh for getting higher education. But credit transfer is not common still from Bangladesh to foreign Universities as it is a complicated process.
But it is possible to credit transfer in abroad as a lot of Universities in Bangladesh has make contractual agreement with foreign Universities. A student cannot make credit transfer in any university in abroad according to his/her wish as it depends on the University. So if you are thinking for credit transfer in abroad the first thing you need to do is to find the list of those Universities with whom your current university has agreement.
Then you have to contact with your preferred university authority for the transfer through email. They will inform you about the documents you need to submit. The rest is collecting the documents and verifying them through the ministry and the embassy.
Credit Transfer to USA University

A very common information is most of the American University allow credit transfer only after completing one year in your current University. But It is different in every institution. The first thing they will look for whether your current University is recognized by your country’s correct authority or not.

The probable reason is Credit transfer from Bangladesh is not possible because all the universities of Bangladesh maintain RCTS (Regional Credit Transfer System) and the universities of Germany maintain ECTS (European Credit Transfer System which every semester contains 30 ECTS credit and FULL program 210 ECTS credit). There are few courses only in full English language, so there might be a chance of credit transfer.

Credit Transfer in Malaysia
The Credit Transfer system is not available in most of the Malaysian University. Many Universities and colleges informed on their website that it is possible to transfer credit but the rules and regulations set by those universities are very complex that makes the scenario advertent.
Overall credit transfer is always a complex procedure especially for Bangladeshi students as many requirements set by the foreign university don’t go with our university education as our education system is not thriving. The most important thing in this procedure the credit transfer where you want is only possible when your current university has an agreement with that particular university or college you want.
Besides if you have already studied more than two years in your current university then it is very hard to get credit transfer done. So if you are thinking of credit transfer in foreign universities then try to know with whom your university has MOA for credit transfer.
Then comes in which subject you study whether they have available seats for that subject or not, how many foundation courses you have completed, how many credits are left etc. Then comes the documentation part, obviously you have to go forward according to your desired foreign university as they will let you know everything through Email. I believe you have got some ideas about credit transfer at a foreign university.
