Please also take notice of point 8.

If there is no Learning Agreement, clarify this with the person responsible for the degree programme.

7. I have chosen a university. How can I be sure that the modules of my interest are recognisable in the degree programme?

  • Advice from those responsible for the course of study, if desired

  • Address the module manager(s), fill in the agreement, and have it signed, then submit it to the Examination Office


8. Note on Academic Achievements Abroad

Starting in the summer semester 2016, in the study programmes of Industrial Engineering and Management abroad, examination achievements will no longer be recognised with a grade, but with "passed" in the case of recognition. With this decision of 15.02.2016, the examination board follows the opinion that foreign grading systems are generally incomparable to the German grading system. The Faculty of Economics has been following this practice for several years.

The reasons for this measure are listed below in a brief summary:

  • The different systems can lead to positive or negative distortions of the average grade. For example, in French or Dutch grading systems, the highest grade is almost never awarded. This means that examination results are usually much worse than in Germany. On the other hand, grading systems with usually extremely good grades violate fairness towards students who perform these examinations at their home university in Germany.

  • Students can start a stay abroad without fearing a negative influence on their average grade.
  • Nevertheless, very good foreign performance can be proven to a later potential employer by transcript of records of the foreign university.

The new regulation therefore applies to students who start their stay abroad after 01.04.2016.
