I. University Doctoral Credit Regulations

(1) Credits may be gained in three different ways in the doctoral training programme (PhD):
- by studies (training), i.e. fulfilling course requirements,
- by pursuing research,
- by undertaking lecturing.
(2) Completion of courses shall be assessed by marks (five-level numeric scale).
(3) Research and lecturing activities shall be evaluated by a three-level scale (excellent-
satisfactory-not satisfactory)
(4) The PhD student’s study scheme determines the number of credits that may be obtained by
completing courses and carrying out research.
(5) The PhD student may also acquire credits by doing lecturing instead of pursuing research
to the extent laid down in the doctoral regulations of the respective faculty.
(6) The number of credits gained by doing lecturing may not exceed one fourth (45 credits) of
the total credit points.
(7) The PhD student may perform less as well as more within a term than the workload (30
credits) designed for one semester.
(8) Rules and criteria of credit allocation and accumulation are set forth in the doctoral
regulations of the faculties.

II. Transfer of Credits
(1) Credits gained in any other domestic or foreign institution of higher education or outside
the auspices of the specific doctoral school where the PhD student is enrolled may be
accepted pursuant to a credit equivalence agreement between the institutions, by a study
agreement entered into with the respective student, or by virtue of statutory provisions
prescribing the recognition of such credits.
(2) The two subject matters shall be deemed equivalent provided the accord between them
covers at least 75%. With regard to the opinion of the doctoral school the extent of such
accord of subject matters shall be examined by the Committee of the faculty established in
particular for being in charge of credit transfers.
(3) Appeal against the decision of the Committee in charge of credit transfers is feasible by
addressing the Rector; such appeals shall be examined by the Supervisory Committee of
Student Affairs.
(4) The maximum percentage of credits (by completing courses) obtainable through credit
transfer is determined by the doctoral regulations of the faculties.

III. Ascribing studies and activities pursued in other doctoral schools, or institutions
(study programmes abroad, study in another HEI)
(1) Studies pursued outside the auspices of the PhD student’s doctoral school where he/she is
enrolled shall be considered as if pursuing a study programme.
(2) The PhD student may enrol in a study programme abroad based on a study scheme –
approved by the supervisor - which provides for the validity of the given academic period in
respect of the doctoral programme of the respective faculty. Approval of the study scheme
may be granted by the respective council of the doctoral school.
(3) In the course of a study programme abroad PhD students may also gain credits for studies
(training courses), research and lecturing.
(4) Marks obtained by PhD students at a study programme abroad should possibly be
converted to ECTS-grades as well.

course, but which conform to such doctoral training, research or lecturing activity qualify as
prior results.

the professional career as credits.
(3) Rules pertaining to the recognition of prior results and the number of study, research and
lecturing credits obtainable by accepting such results are set forth in the doctoral regulations
