    Recognition of study achievements from abroad

    Throughout Europe, ECTS-credit points are used to ensure the transferability of study achievements. By fulfilling a "Learning Agreement" all courses that are scheduled to be part of the studies abroad will be determined in advance. It will be completed in agreement with both faculties (home university and partner university) to ensure the recognition of achieved credits at the home university.
