Recognition

Examinations taken at other universities can only be recognised as supplementary examination in Latin, if it is the supplementary Examination in Latin of the corresponding university (acc. to § 4 Abs. 1 lit. a UBVO 1998). The determination of equivalence at other universities than MedUni Vienna is subject to the guidelines of the other university, but it absolutely requires a registration as an officially enrolled student at MedUni Vienna at the time of taking the examination.
