Recognition of External Achievements

Recognition of External Study and Examination Achievements

Study and Examination Achievements that have been acquired at other universities, in Germany or abroad, can be recognized if the contents and examination requirements are equivalent to the requirements of the respective study program.

The recognition is based on the concept of significant differences. The modules to be recognized will be checked according to several indicators:


Time Slot of the Stay Abroad


Within the undergraduate study program, the integration of a stay abroad is recommended subsequent to the research internship. At that stage all two-semester courses will be accomplished, thus students are more flexible in the planning of their stay abroad.

The recognition of external achievements will be particularly easy if they have a high correspondence to the modules offered at Bamberg. Of course, students should also be able to enroll in courses that are not offered at Bamberg. In this respect, the recognition of modules not offered in Bamberg is most likely if students integrate them into the module group ‘Contextual Studies’ (“Kontextstudium”).
