Frequently asked questions on recognition

In the following, we have listed some of the most common questions in recognition matters.

Another type of examination was sat or the type of examination is not documented.

If the examination is equivalent it can still be recognised. Different types of examination do not affect recognition.

The module was studied as part of a bachelor's degree but is considered as a master's degree module at Oldenburg.

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.

The module or class is not included in the courses offered at the University of Oldenburg.

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.

The external module is equivalent to the module offered by the University but has fewer credit points.

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 external module is equivalent to a module at the University of Oldenburg but has more 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.)

The external module is not graded but the module at the University of Oldenburg is.

  • Either the module is graded subsequently by the module coordinator or lecturer at the former university

or

  • 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 external module is graded but the module at the University of Oldenburg is not graded.

The grade of the external module is not considered in the overall grade.
