The recognition of examinations is regulated by the Universities Act 2002 § 78 Abs. 1.

Dr. Cezary Kaliszyk is the Associate Dean of Studies (Studienbeauftragter für Informatik) responsible for the Bachelor and Master Programmes,  the Supplementary Programme Computer Science.  Clemens Sauerwein PhD is responsible for the Teaching Training Programme Computer Science. The Dean of Studies of the Faculty of Mathematics, Computer Science and Physics (MIP) Univ.-Prof. Dr. Thomas Franosch is responsible for the Doctoral Programme.



The forms Recognition of exams (Ansuchen um Anerkennung von Prüfungen) and the Supplementary Sheet are available on the website of the respective study programme:


A recognition is not required for courses that are completed according to an earlier curriculum and stated in an equivalence list. The equivalences are shown in lfu:online.
The exams can be transferred by the student. See lfu:online Hilfe/FAQ
Information about the allocation of exams in lfu:online: provisional allocation

Submit the completed application including all required documents:

  • Application form - signed on both sides
