Credit points transfer / accreditation

How can the credit points of my certificate of academic achievement be credited?

You must register the language course as an elective module or additional module at the beginning of the semester at the Examinations Office. Please note the information provided by the ZEMS at the beginning of the semester and the deadlines of the examination office.

I have received a certificate of academic achievement in my language course. Will the transcript of records be forwarded to the examination office?

At the beginning of the lecture period, all students who attend language courses will be informed by e-mail about the application deadlines and application procedures. If you have registered for the examination, then the grade will be forwarded to the examination office after successful completion of the course.

To register my course with the examination office, I can choose between a free elective module (= elective module) or an additional module. What is the difference?

The free choice or the elective module serves to deepen and sharpen the study profile in a self-determined way. A module catalogue for free choice can be found under Studies and Teaching on the websites of the respective faculty. The language courses of the ZEMS are independent modules and count as part of this module. 

An additional module is neither a compulsory nor an elective module, but a module that can be taken in addition to the credit points required for one's own degree program.

Please contact the student advisory service for your subject area for information on credit points and credit transfer.
