Recognition of International Mobility

Recognition of international mobility is a process in which the Academic ECTS Coordinator of CHM determines student records over the course of international mobility and makes a decision on the manner of recognising the records student has obtained in the receiving institution (passed exams, ECTS and grades). Upon recognition finalisation, a Decision on Academic Recognition of Mobility is issued.

The crucial point in mobility is to enable a student to realise his/her academic activities in a receiving institution and to have that mobility period recognized as having been realized in the home institution.

The process of academic recognition is initiated by the student, by submitting a written request for the recognition of mobility. Student is obliged to submit all relevant documentation listed in the document titled Rulebook on International Mobility (section Academic Mobility Recognition Procedure) to the Academic ECTS Coordinator of CHM in accordance with the set deadlines.

If a student has submitted all necessary documentation for the realization of recognition in a proper manner, it is incumbent upon Academic ECTS Coordinator of CHM to issue a Decision on Academic Recognition of Mobility, as well as to provide that Decision to the student and the Student Office at CHM, in a time period of up to seven days before the beginning of the following semester at the home institution, in order for the home institution to finalise all administrative aspects pertaining to student mobility.

Comparison and assessment of courses between CHM and receiving institution are realized by the Academic ECTS Coordinator of CHM, in accordance with the flexibility principle as well as consultations with course professors and the Commission for Student and Teaching Matters. 

Academic ECTS Coordinator of CHM is independent in his/her assessment of the similarity of courses student has submitted in a corresponding form in his/her list of courses at the receiving institution; however, it is a common rule to consult or seek advice from the professor and/or the Commission for Student and Teaching Matters prior to student mobility.

If the courses student has successfully passed at the receiving institution are equivalent to the courses student would have had a chance to take at the home institution of CHM, meaning that scientific fields of study and the acquired knowledge as an outcome of learning are similar in nature, a full recognition of the courses is recommended.

More details on transferring and recognising ECTS and grades, as well as interpreting and aligning the records obtained during the mobility period in a receiving institution may be found in a document titled Rulebook on International Mobility, section Academic Mobility Recognition Procedure
