Recognition of Courses (Anerkennung)

At the end of an exchange semester / year organised within an official exchange programme you need to have your courses recognised.

Contact person: Mag. Monika Wittmann.

ERASMUS programme:

1)  Ansuchen um Anerkennung/Application for recognition

2) Learning Agreement After Studies: LEARNING AGREEMENT AFTER THE MOBILITY (4th link from above); see also SAMPLE FORM / AUSFÜLLHILFE

3) Transcript of records (original or copy) of host university


NON-EU EXCHANGE programme:

1)  Ansuchen um Anerkennung/Application for recognition

2) Vorausbescheid (page 2)

3) Transcript of records (original or copy) of host university

Important Notes:

  • The two-month-period for carrying out the course recognition (usually stated under terms and conditions of both the Erasmus and Non-EU-programmes) does not start until your transcript has actually arrived in Austria.
  • You will receive an official Bescheid for your recognition (The Learning Agreement After Studies for Erasmus Students) - please keep this document  carefully, as it cannot be easily replaced. You will have to submit this document again at the end of your studies.
  • Note also that ONCE A RECOGNITION HAS BEEN CARRIED OUT AND ENTERED INTO YOUR U:SPACE ACCOUNT, IT CANNOT BE CHANGED ANY MORE (principle of legal certainty / Prinzip der "Rechtssicherheit").

The recognition procedure can also be carried out via email if forms and documents are sent as pdf (preferably) or jpg files. Documents can also be left in the box outside M Wittmann's office or sent by snail mail.

All "Bescheide" and "Learning Agreements" have to be be collected from the StudienServiceStelle Anglistik, which will contact students by email (Unet-address). 

At the Department of English, all recognised courses are immediately entered into the U:Space system and will become visible there; no changes to these recognised courses are possible after this. 

If students receive Studienbeihilfe during a stay abroad, they can either hand in a separate SB confirmation form with the other forms, or use the Bescheid or Learning Agreement to prove that they have completed a sufficient number of courses / ECTS.
