Key Information about Credit Point Recognition/Conversion

The decision as to whether your study achievements from abroad can be recognized will always be made before your departure (Guidelines of the International Office). Therefore, it is essential that you inform yourself regarding the courses offered by the partner university. Furthermore, you should get in contact with the Module Coordinators of the faculty who are responsible for recognizing the credit transfer, as early as possible.

- IMPORTANT! New process of Credit Point Recognition from WS 2017/2018 -


The decision regarding your credit point recognition falls to the Module Coordinators.

The choice of modules available will depend on the comparability of the module for which recognition is requested. Your credit points from abroad may possibly be recognized as a substitution for an equivalent module offered by Paderborn University. However, this only applies to modules with comparable learning contents.

Alternatively, your credit points from abroad could be recognized as part of the module category 'Specialized Subjects' which can have a value of 5 or 10 ECTS. This category does not require a similarity in content with the modules offered by the Faculty at Paderborn University.
