Recognition of Examinations

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

Dr. Peter Thoman is the Associate Dean of Studies (Studienbeauftragter für Informatik) responsible for the Bachelor and Master Programmes,  the Supplementary Programme Computer Science  and 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 form ‘Ansuchen um Anerkennung von Prüfungen‘ and the 'Beiblatt' 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

Submit the completed application including all required documents (Admission Record ‘Studienblatt’, Transcript of Records ‘Bestätigung des Studienerfolges’ of the respective examinations) by email to The signature of the applicant (Antragsteller/in) is also required on the page 'Niederschrift'.

Notification of the decision by email

The notification is available for inspection at the Prüfungsreferat Technik resp. at the Prüfungsreferat Innrain (Teacher Training Programme) – approximately two weeks after the notification.

Since the processing of notifications takes a certain amount of time, recognitions are not immediately visible in LFU:online.

Courses that are completed during the Computer Science studies may be used individually. In this case an allocation of confirmation (Zuordnungsbestätigung) is required:

        • Informal email to
        • Indication about the desired allocation (allocation for elective modules according to the curriculum: indication of the specific elective module out of EM 1-20, if possible from the same research group)
        • Required documents: Transcript of Records ‘Bestätigung des Studienerfolges’ of the respective examinations, Admission Record ‘Studienblatt’

BA Computer Science 2007W: 703045 QSP Lab PS 2 (5 ECTS) -> Elective Module 12: Software Quality (5 ECTS)
MA Computer Science 2007W: 703800 + 703801 Computer Haptics VO 2 + PS 2 (10 ECTS) -> Elective Module 2: Computer Vision (10 ECTS)

Questions concerning Computer Science study:



Examinations must be equivalent in workload (ECTS credits) and content to the courses prescribed in the curriculum. 

An introductory seminar (Proseminar) without the corresponding lecture will not be recognised.

Please formulate requests by E-Mail short and concise. For courses that do not belong to the curriculum of computer science at the University of Innsbruck, we need a link to an official description. Optionally, send a short description of the teaching content.
