Nostrification of Degrees

 

Pursuant to § 90 of the Universities Act 2002 (Universitätsgesetz 2002), nostrification is the recognition of a foreign university degree as being comparable to the completion of an Austrian university degree program. Through nostrification, the foreign degree is declared to be equivalent to an Austrian university degree. The holder is then also entitled to use an Austrian academic title.
