Recognition of academic achievements
You are here: UHH> International> Studying abroad> Recognition of academic achievements
Procedure in the faculties
The recognition of academic achievements abroad is relatively different in the faculties. It is therefore essential to seek advice from the relevant study office in good time before going abroad. At this point only an initial orientation is offered, which should help you to find the right information and contact persons more quickly.

Legal basis - Extract from the handout of the section Quality and Law of the Department of Studies and Teaching
Since the "Lisbon Convention" of the European Union was transposed into federal law in 2007, universities have generally had to recognize externally provided work. Recognition of externally performed achievements can only be refused if the university can prove that these are not equivalent.
The decisive principle of the Lisbon Convention is that a qualification is to be recognized as a rule. The burden of proof that an application for recognition does not meet the relevant requirements because there is a significant difference lies with the body responsible for recognition, in this case the examination board of the respective degree program at Universität Hamburg. This principle is reflected in § 40 HmbHG. According to § 40 HmbHG and the "Lisbon Convention", competencies acquired within and outside of the university sector must be recognized in principle.
Further information can be found under Handouts from the Quality and Law Unit.
