In the case of modules offered by partner universities of the Faculty of Business Administration and Economics or universities of the European Higher Education Area, recognition is often problem-free. The primary prerequisite is that the selected modules can be assigned to your study programme and period (semester) in a reasonable way.
Modules from universities that you attend as a Free-Mover through placement agencies can often too be recognised. However, the examination is more complex in this instance and requires not only information regarding the course content but also documents about the university. This includes detailed information regarding the calculation of the scope of the course (ECTS conversion), as well as the conversion of grades, etc.
Recognition can take two forms:
- If it is a module that can be recognised, but for which there is no direct equivalent at the Faculty of Business Administration and Economics, the container modules (special module) available will be used to recognise the module studied abroad.
- If the module content corresponds to the content of a module offered at the Faculty of Economic Sciences in terms of content and scope, recognition will be granted for this module (subject-specific module).
Modules will not be recognised if the competencies acquired fail to meet the requirements of the degree programme studied by the student, or if the student is unable to provide appropriate documentation regarding the content/scope of the module under review.
The provision of all documents necessary for the recognition examination is the responsibility of the student as the applicant. If the necessary documentation cannot be provided in advance, it is advised that the student compiles all necessary documentation during the time abroad and subsequently carries out the module recognition process via the Changes Agreement.
Important: Please note that in the case of later recognition, i.e. after your stay abroad, the subsequent submission of course documents (structures, course descriptions, transcripts, etc) may also be required. *
