ECTS & Grading System at AUAS

ECTS

European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (also abbreviated as EC in the Netherlands)

Sometimes referred to as European Credit Transfer System. The EU introduced this standardised system for measuring study load as a way to facilitate international mobility. One ECTS credit represents 28 hours of full-time study, the standard workload for one semester is 30 credits.

Grading System at AUAS

The AUAS Faculty of Business and Economics applies the Dutch grading system.

On the final transcript of records (i.e., grade list) only round figures and passing grades will be showned where 6 is the passing mark.

Average grades will be rounded up or down. As an example, a grade between 5.0-5.4 will be rounded down to a 5, and a grade between 5.5-5.9 will be rounded up to a 6.

Transcript of Academic Record

A transcript of academic record is an official document issued by AUAS at the end of the semester. A transcript includes basic data on the student, such as name, date and place of birth; basic data on the institution; and a list of the courses and other programme components completed by the student, together with dates and grades.
