Entire semesters cannot be credited based on secondary-school leaving qualifications or university degrees. Students can, however, request that courses be credited. If you are able to prove the equivalence of the knowledge with regard to the requirement profile of the relevant course, this course can then be credited. The learning objective of the relevant course is used as the basis for this evaluation.
The relevant lecturer and programme director decide on the type of evidence that needs to be provided and the extent to which the course is credited. You can find more details on this in the guideline on the degree programme on the internal learning platform ILIAS, or you can discuss it with the programme director.
Proof of higher education at an institution in another country need to be legalised. Guidelines for legalisation and translation can be found under International.
