For the purposes of Exchange programmes, the RU International Office weights courses as follows:
1 semester of a 1st or 2nd year subject = 7.5 EC
1 semester of a 3rd year subject = 15 EC
1 semester of a 4th year subject = 30 EC
Note that your own exam committee (at the faculty where you study at UU) will decide how many EC they will give for a course, and how the grades are converted. The above may serve as a guideline.
