Recognition of an academic degree from outside Austria: Nostrification

If you have obtained your degree from outside Austria, IMC Krems can verify its equivalence with Austrian degrees. The main reason for obtaining this official verification, called nostrification, is that you require recognition of your academic qualifications in order to further your career or continue your studies in Austria.

You will find detailed information about this in the document Nostrification applications. Good to know: you will need to submit certified copies of all the required documents. These must be translated into German or English by a certified translator.

You can send us your nostrification application, along with all the necessary documents, by e-mail or post.
