Apply for crediting and recognition of periods of study and academic achievements in medical studies

Description

If you have already started studying medicine abroad and now want to continue at a German university, you can have your study periods and academic achievements credited.

If you have started a related course of study at home or abroad, you can also have this credited. In this case, it will be checked in advance whether your studies are comparable to a medical degree.

You can only have an entire proof of performance recognised. Partial benefits are not recognised.

If you have studied medicine in Germany, this does not have to be counted.

You have already studied medicine abroad for a few semesters and now want to change university? Find out more here.
