To begin the online application process, select “Accreditation/Recognition” (business card). Once you have completed the entry, please bring the certificates or supporting documents to the Study Services. If the examinations were completed at BOKU, it is sufficient to inform the Study Services by telephone or email. The Study Services will formally examine the application and inform you of the result (e.g. when an opinion is required from the course director, or additional documents are required). Once a decision has been made regarding each individual request, the Dean of Studies will make a decision regarding the entire application. A written decision will be issued regarding recognition; you will receive notification by e-mail once the decision is available for pickup in the Study Services. Once you have officially accepted the decision, the examination credits will be confirmed in the system.  

The following generally applies to the transfer of examination credit:

  • Examinations which have been completed as part of a Bachelor's programme cannot be counted towards a Master's programme. Exception: examinations taken in the 7th or 8th semester of an 8-semester Bachelor's programme will be counted.

Equivalence lists for the transfer of examination credit (transfer from an Austrian diploma to Bachelor's or Master's programmes) can be found here here.

The procedure for credit transfer is NOT necessary if

  • a course was completed at BOKU and is now to be counted as a FREE elective for a university programme.
  • a Master's programme course was completed as part of a Bachelor's programme, provided that the course is identical (course number, title, type, extent, etc.) and the curriculum version IS NOT a SPO version.
