Here are some general transfer guidelines.

If you have already studied or worked in the area of your research topic (of PhD) either in previous educational courses, or during some professional training or in your previous job profile, we will accept the credit hours of those courses and reduce the equivalent from your program, provided you have their transcript with you. So you won’t have to go through the same labor again during your doctoral thesis. However, the onus of authenticating those transcript will be on you.

You can get credits for maximum of 50% of the total program courses. Out of which the maximum of 25% of courses can be from prior learning credits.
