Credit Transfer

Recognition of study credits obtained abroad

Credit transfers can be requested for knowledge and competences gained abroad as long as these are comparable to those they are intended to replace.

The Module Coordinator of the relevant module decides whether your study credits can be recognised. The following modules fall under the remit of Professor Jungblut: 

  • W1411 Macro-economics for joint degree students / as optional course (BA, 5 ECTS, only in combination with Micro-economics)
  • W2411 International Economics: Basic Concepts and Current Issues (BA, 10 ECTS)
  • W2414 Economics of European Integration (BA, 5 ECTS)
  • W4481 Specific Intensive Study Topic (MA, 10 ECTS)
  • W4482 Specific Intensive Study Topic (MA, 5 ECTS)
  • Japanese Language for Business and Economics (BA, MA, 5 ECTS, 10 ECTS)

Please include the following documents in your application for credit transfers:

  • Before your study stay abroad: (1) completed Recognition Application Form, (2) detailed course description including lenth and scope and, if applicable, number of ECTS, (3) Structure and reading lists. If your Recognition Application is approved, you will receive a Confirmation letter, which you must keep for the next step.
  • After completion of your study stay: (1) completed (and approved) Recognition application form, (2) examination results, (3) information on the partner university's grading system, and (4) (if requested) course documentation and transcripts. 

Important note: Study credits cannot be recognised retrospectively without the Recognition Confirmation letter being received before your departure abroad.

To apply for course recognition please use the following contact form below. Please hand in your request with the full set of supporting documentation to Q4.334 or into Professor Jungblut’s pigeonhole (level Q0, Postbox 2).

Note Compensation for the MSc International Economics and Management (IEM)

Students with a Bachelor pass grade of between 2.5 and 3 (see also the Credit Conversion Table here) require a note compensation for entrance to the MSc International Economics and Management.

Depending on your grade, the compensation requires a specific number of ECTS in the thematic areas Quantitative Methods/Economics. This comprises all the modules starting with the module number W14__ , W24__ and W34__, amongst several others. 

Alternatively, of your final dissertation topic came under thematic areas 'Quantitative Methods/Economics', this may despense you from note compensation.

To apply for note compensation you need either a transcript of record (for module compensation for modules in Economics or Quantitative Methods), or a confirmation of your approved dissertation (for final dissertation compensation in Economics or Quantitative Methods). The documents have to state the number of ECTS (module compensation), or the name of the Supervisor/Academic Advisor (dissertation), and for both, they must state your student enrolment number, e-mail address and date of birth. The application has to be handed into the Secretariat Office of Professor Jungblut (Q4.334) or to his pigeonhole (level Q0, Postbox 2). Please do not submit original certificates. A confirmation of the note compensation will be forwarded to the Study Secretary, Herr Fischer.

Enquiries about note compensation, and applications, can be made via the following contact form.

MSc IEM: German Language Courses

International students on the MSc IEM who at the time of enrolment did not yet possess the required German language skills have until the end of their MSc studies to improve their skills. The course requirement can be met by attending a German language module of 240 hours at Paderborn University. As an ‘elective module’ the course can contribute credit points towards the General Studies program.

When seeking recognition for the German language course credits (up to 10 ECTS) you have to submit proof of attendance to your Course Coordinator, who will forward the documentation to the Examinations Secretariat.

For enquiries about the recognition of German language courses towards your MSc IEM please use the following contact form.

MSc IEM: Requests for Recognition and External Study Credits

Study credits obtained in another study program undertaken at Paderborn University, or another HE institution or equivalent professional education institution in or outside Germany can be granted recognition (i.e. transferred) as long as they do not differ substantially from the modules they are intended to substitute. Each study credit can only be transferred once. Decisions on Credit Transfers are the remit of the Examinations Committee.

Please address any questions on Credit Transfer to the Department Coordinator Professor Jungblut, who will forward your enquiry to the Examinations Committee.

Please submit your completed application, with all the required supporting documentation (copy of originals only), including the proof of acquired skills and competences, and examination results, to the Secretariat of Professor Jungblut, in Q4. 334, or pigeonhole (level Q0, Postbox 2)
