  31. Recognition of Studies For Exchange Students the study period taken within the ARCADE project will be recognized in your Home Universities: • Learning Agreement/Work Plan proposal agreed with Home and Host University; • at the end of the mobility the Host University will issue a Transcript of Records in which are stated all the exams he/she has taken with correspondent grades and ECTS credits. • Once back, the Home University recognizes the studies taken abroad and it transfers the corresponding credits to the local academic career.
