Recognition of examination performance


We ask you to adhere to the following procedure:

  • Apply for recognition of the examination performance via the digital application system Paperless. Please note the documents to be attached.
  1. Proof of completion of the examination that you wish to have credited. For external events, practical semesters or similar, the reports/logs must be submitted.
  2. The module description in which the examination performance is described that you want to have credited.

It is not necessary that you visit the lecturer of the course taking place at the RWTH beforehand and talk to him/her about a possible credit.

Your application may take up to 3 months to process. Please submit applications early. When processing is complete, you will be notified by email to your RWTH address.


Recognition of examinations taken abroad

Achievements that you have completed abroad within the framework of ERASMUS (or similar programs) will be recognized 1:1 in our Master's programs as the modules completed there (incl. title, CP, etc.). You can also apply for this via Paperless. Please also indicate the duration of your stay by day.

Information on the conversion of international grades can be found on the corresponding page of the International Office..
