Recognition Events

Exam results from other universities (domestic or abroad) as well as from other studies programs at the University of Tuebingen can be recognized for your current studies program at the Department of Computer Science by the board of examiners. You can file an application for recognition of exam results with the board only if you are currently enrolled in one of the department's B.Sc. or M.Sc. studies programs.

What you need for your application

  • filled-out form of application (see below), including your complete contact information, phone number, e-mail address, matriculation number and studies program/prospective degree.
  • a tabulated overview of your exam results to date in all courses required in your program (see below).
  • proof of your exam results (certificate, transcript of records) – a copy or scan suffices. Please note that ungraded courses will enter calculation as being graded with a grade of 4.0.
  • descriptions of the subject matter of externally obtained exam results: course descriptions, excerpts from module handbooks, content descriptions of classes etc.

What you will need to keep in mind regarding exam results from abroad

  • please use this conversion table (German only) for calculating grades and credit points obtained abroad.
  • if your module descriptions, certificates and documentation are not available in English, French, Spanish, Italian or Turkish – and especially if your documents are written in a different alphabet, such as Korean, Arabic etc. – we ask you to provide notarized translations.
