Most of our partner universities send the transcripts to the international office. You are responsible for arranging the transfer of your grades and credits.
The convertion of credits and grades you obtained abroad is regulated in the Education and Examination Regulations of your programme. The authority lies with the Board of Examiners of each individual study programme.
Most European universities use the European Credit system (EC) and normally, you obtain 30 EC per semester. For universities that do not use EC, a credit conversion table is available.
For the credits to count towards your degree, you may be asked to provide additional information besides the transcript of grades. Your Board of Examiners may, for instance, require an overview of the number of hours you spent on a particular subject, as well as the study materials used.
Grades you obtain abroad are converted to Pass or Fail. In addition, the original courses and grades are recorded in OSIRIS and printed on the International Diploma Supplement. You can find more information about this in the Education and Examination Regulations.
