Universiteit Hasselt - Knowledge in action


What is a learning account?

The learning account was introduced in 2008-2009. It means that when a student registers for the first time, he/she receives 140 ECTS credits.

Students use these ECTS credits to "pay" for programmes. At the end of the academic year, they then earn back these credits with credits awarded for successfully completed programme components.

Get more information on the website of the Flemish government.

After registration at, students can consult their learning account balance and movements.
