Recognition is understood to mean the crediting of study achievements at other universities, higher education institutions and other educational institutions; the exact regulations can be found in §12 of the General Framework (Rahmenordnung). In addition, achievements from other degree programmes can be recognised as equivalent to intended or possible achievements.
You can request the transfer of examinations with identical examination numbers and clear categorisation directly from the Studiensekretariat (student administration and examinations office). Please note the cut-off period of one semester after the examination date or after starting the new degree programme.
In order to apply for recognition of achievements from other or previous degree programmes and stays abroad, please prepare the following documents and submit them in full by email:
- Complete the forms Application for recognition of study and examination achievements (Antrag auf Anerkennung von Studien- und Prüfungsleistungen) and Further pages on the application for recognition (Weitere Seiten zum Antrag auf Anerkennung) (see recognition, there are separate files for first and non-first pages!). Use Acrobat Reader. Unfortunately, files created with Adobe LifeCycle Designer cannot be processed! The forms must be completed as far as possible and submitted as a PDF. Before sending, make sure that the completed information has been saved correctly, files are still editable and readable using Acrobat Reader.
- For externally completed achievements that you would like to recognise as a specific internal achievement, you must also complete the form "application_recognition_of_academic_achievements". You will find this form on the right-hand side of this website for downloading. This form must be signed by the responsible Ulm lecturer. Register with the Ulm lecturer using the form, the module description of the externally completed achievements and certificates (transcript of records).
- The enrolment record or certificates (transcript of records) of the old and the new degree programme.
- The corresponding module descriptions must be submitted for achievements that are no longer listed in the module handbook and for externally completed achievements.
According to a regulation passed by the examination board, you will be placed one semester higher if you have been recognised for a total of 30 credit points (exception: semester abroad).
Caution: Unfinished examination procedures cannot be concluded by means of a recognition!
