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

Univ.-Prof. Dr. Georg Moser is the Dean of Studies of the Faculty of Mathematics, Computer Science and Physics (MIP) and the Associate Dean of Studies for Computer Science. He is responsible for the studies Bachelor, Master and the Docoral Programmes and he is the authorised representative for the Teaching Training Programme Computer Science.



The form ‘Ansuchen um Anerkennung von Prüfungen‘ is 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 equivalence lists can be found in the respective curriculum.

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

Notification of the decision by E-Mail

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

The recognised courses will be assigned in lfu:online by the Prüfungsreferat after completion of the study with the submission of the Examination Records.

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

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

If you have questions:

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.
