ECTS and Grading System
ECTS and Course workload
The study load of each course is expressed in European Credits (ECs). Most courses are worth 5 EC. One EC is the equivalent of 28 hours of study (preparing for/attending classes, practicals, exams, groupwork etc). An academic year consists of 60 ECs.
Our "regular" degree (MSc, BSc) students take courses for a total of 60 ECTS in a year: 30 ECTS per semester, 15 ECTS per period (one semester has 2 periods). We advise you to do the same, to make sure you have a balanced studyload.
The Dutch grading scale runs from 10 (outstandig) to 1 (very poor), in which 5.5 is the minimum pass mark. Grades 9 and 10 are rarely awarded.
All results of examinations taken by students at the faculty are registered by the Educational Administration after they are handed in by the professor/lecturer responsible.
