What impact will the nostrification have on my academic degree?

A nostrified academic degree has the same legal effects as an academic degree acquired in Austria; it therefore entitles the holder

  • to use the corresponding Austrian (instead of the foreign) academic degree and
  • to exercise all associated rights, in particular to exercise that profession which in Austria is reserved for graduates of a relevant University of Applied Sciences (UAS) degree program.

A recognition procedure (EU/EEA countries) has no effect on the academic degree obtained abroad.
