Recognition of Achievements
If you are enrolled in the master programmes Advanced Materials, Advanced Oncology, Biology, Biophysics, Cognitive Systems, Communication and Information Technology, Energy Science and Technology, Finance or Physics and wish to have exams recognized please contact the chair of the examination board directly.
Since the summer semester 2014 Ulm University has been using a standardised form for the recognition of study and examination achievements.
You can find the form under Forms.
Please find the deadlines for recognition in §19 of the General study and examination regulations regarding bachelor’s and master’s programmes at Ulm University (General Framework - ASPO) of 13 July 2022.
As a student please fill out the form online and then send it including the documents required for recognition to the chair of the examination board of the respective degree programme.
If achievements in the compulsory area are to be recognised the corresponding examinations from the study programme at Ulm University must be used. In the compulsory elective area examinations can also be recognised without the existence of an equivalent examination at Ulm University. In this case please enter "no PNr." in the examination number field.
As chairperson of the examination board please check the application and enter the corresponding examination number for the achievements to be recognised. Also check whether the student need to be placed in a higher semester. You can find the examination numbers for your study programme by logging into the university portal as an examiner, clicking on "My functions" --> "Overview of examinations in PDF format" --> "Overview of all modules and examinations in the individual degree programmes" and then clicking on the corresponding study programme.
The conversion of grades from other than the German grading system is usually carried out according to the Modified Bavarian Formula.
