If you are completing a degree at the JKU and have taken examinations as part of an official exchange program, please see the information below in regards to credit transfer/examination recognition. If you have taken examinations abroad and were not part of an official exchange program, you must apply for credit transfer/examination recognition via credit transfer - Austria.
Students must submit a form to confirm credit transfer for their degree BEFORE beginning an exchange program abroad. The so-called "advance pre-approval notification" is an integral part of an exchange program (and for receiving the exchange scholarship).
The application lists the courses you intend to take at the host university and the curriculum equivalent at the JKU.
