Recognizing Credits and Verifying Degrees

If you have completed part or all of your studies at another university, you can apply to have these credits accredited for your studies at TUM. You can also have TUM-Degrees verified. 

Equivalency

The prerequisite for recognizing previously-earned credits is establishing that no large disparities exist with respect to the skills or knowledge acquired through a course at another academic institute (article 63 of the Bavarian Higher Education Act, BayHSchG). In other words, the knowledge acquired must be equivalent to that received at TUM.
