Examinations which have been successfully competed at a recognised domestic or foreign university, a college or any other post-secondary educational institution, a vocational secondary school, a university-equivalent course, or research activities in the private sector or at a non-university research institution.

This frees students from having to repeat examinations when transferring to a new academic programme. In order to meet criteria, examinations must be equivalent in content and scope to corresponding Austrian examinations, particularly with regard to ECTS credits.
