What is nostrification?

Nostrification (Nostrifizierung) is the accreditation process of deeming a foreign degree to be equivalent to an Austrian one. This not only includes checking that your concluding your course ties in with completing an Austrian degree course, but also relates to the rights and obligations arising from holding a specific course of studies or a degree (e.g. the right to use your academic title or an authorisation to practice in certain jobs).
