Recognition of study periods and examinations

The term recognition is used if academic achievements or professional competencies which a student acquired prior to taking up his current studies, are to be incorporated into the new study program.

You can submit an application for the recognition of study periods and examinations, if you

  • have transferred to the University of Oldenburg from another university
  • have changed your combination of subjects at the University of Oldenburg
  • have studied at a university abroad
  • have professional experience which you want to have accredited

N.B. a recognition can only be processed after you are enrolled at the University of Oldenburg.
