Recognition of study periods and examinations
Credit recognition or credit transfer means that academic achievement that a student has acquired in a context beyond his/her current studies can be accredited towards his/her degree. Courses acknowledged for transfer do not need to be taken anymore.
It is also possible to get skills acknowledged that have been acquired in a professional context. In this case it would be necessary to submit a portfolio of acquired skills.
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.
