Recognition of Accomplishments

Form AV:

Form AN:
Request for recognition of external modules

The forms including all necessary documents are to submitted to the study advisor, who will transfer it to the examination committee and the KIT administration.


Recognition of External Credits

Recognition of external accomplishments, for example credits obtained in other master’s programs or at other universities, has to be requested using the respective form of the examination committee.

If the accomplishments are equivalent to modules in the curriculum, this is confirmed by the respective lecturers on the form AV.

Accomplishments that are not equivalent to modules in the curriculum can be accredited if the acquired competences contribute to the qualification goals of the master’s program. If necessary, an individual curriculum has to be compiled and approved by the mentor. After having received a request using form AN, the examination committee decides on which accomplishments are accredited and which parts of the curriculum may be replaced.


Recognition of Accomplishments Obtained Outside of the Higher Education System

Accomplishments made outside of the higher education system, as for example vocational training, can be accredited if the acquired competences contribute to the qualification goals of the master’s program. Recognition is requested with the respective form of the examination committee (AV or AN).
The examination committee verifies to which extent the acquired knowledge and capabilities can be recognized, and which parts of the program they can replace. At maximum, 50 % of the university education can be replaced.


Other Forms

Other forms (in German) are available from the examination committee. Please contact your study advisor.
