Frequently asked questions on recognition
In the following, we have listed some of the most common questions in recognition matters.
If the examination is equivalent it can still be recognised. Different types of examination do not affect recognition.
Both bachelor's degree and master's degree phases are considered as integrated at the University. The same module or examination cannot be counted twice in both the bachelor's and master's phases.
A module may be recognised if the subject representatives decide that the content of the module is equivalent to a module offered by the University. If individual classes such as lectures or seminars are to be recognised, these must be equivalent to a module at the University.
If the difference is minor (approximately 20%) the module can be recognised as if it was taken at the University, with the higher number of credit points.
The module can be recognised as if it was studied at the University with a lower number of credit points.
If there is a difference of 6 credit points or more, it may be possible to recognise them in the area of specialization.
(If the external modules are only part of an assessment, they may only be recognised as part of an assessment. The remainder of the assessment must then be completed.)
- Either the module is graded subsequently by the module coordinator or lecturer at the former university
- the module will be graded on completion of the degree from the average grade from the subject/area of specialization weighted by the number of credit points.
The grade of the external module is not considered in the overall grade.
