You can search for possible courses for your semester abroad on the website of the foreign university you wish to attend. At “Downloads” on this page you will find an overview of subjects at selected partner universities which have been credited 1:1 since 2016. Further information is contained in our lists of free mover universities, which can be sent to you on request or can be viewed at the course planning and advice office
Ms. Höger-Riedel during office hours: Mon – Thu, 9:00 to 12:00.
The overviews are a good guide, but are not a guarantee of recognition, since the course content may vary from semester to semester.
1:1 Recognition of subjects abroad
When selecting your subjects and the 1:1 recognition you would like, you must ensure that the subjects abroad are at the same level as the subjects at HSE (agreement of course content, semester level from the 4th semester, records of performance). Your Learning Agreement must plan for at least 12 credits and you must pass at least one examination.
Mandatory electives undertaken at a university abroad
If you choose a subject which has no exact equivalent at HSE, "WPF an ausländischer Hochschule erbracht” (mandatory elective completed at university abroad) can be selected from the WPF 1 or WPF 2 - the corresponding ECTS are then taken into account. In this case, the title of the subject taken at the university abroad does not appear on the certificate, it says instead "WPF an ausländischer Hochschule erbracht".
You have the option and the flexibility to gain all credits for your mandatory electives by means of subjects taken at universities abroad. To take the subject abroad, you must have chosen a management or economics profile (see overview mandatory electives at “Downloads”).
All subjects must be included in the course planning, even those which you do not wish to have recognised. The German designation in this case is "Zusatzfach". The title of the subject will appear on the final certificate. If you do not want the title to appear, the right-hand column must be left blank.
RECOGNITION OF COURSES:
Binding recognition of your course credits is granted when your course recognition form has been approved: the form, together with the certificate from the university abroad and the course descriptions in English, must be sent to
Christiane Höger-Riedel as soon as your stay abroad ends.
- Grades obtained abroad are not credited.
- A subject which you have already taken and been examined in at HSE may not be taken and examined again at your university abroad.
After the courses you have taken have been checked and recognised, Prof. Mathis or Ms Höger-Riedel signs the form. The international programme coordinator then sends the form together with the certificate to the Examinations Office.
We strongly recommend that you attend the information events on stays abroad which are held by the International Office on a regular basis.
