ECTS Grading Scale

A student’s performance is graded on a scale of 1 to 5, 1 being the best grade. The pass grade is 4. For a better distinction, grades can be differenciated by either 0,3 or 0,7.

 

The Law Faculty uses a different grading scale where a student's performance is graded on a scale of 0 to 18 points.

 

ECTS grades are not awarded to non-degree students (exchange and visiting students), and are therefore not indicated on the transcript or records.

 

Only degree-students will receive with their degree diploma, a diploma supplement that indicates the ECTS grades (A, B, C… F, FX).
