Like Hasselt University students, exchange students are expected to take exams. The exam schedules are published four school weeks before the start of the exam period, and deviation from these dates is not possible. As exams can last until the last day of the semester, we advise exchange students not to plan their return trip until the exam schedule has been published.

Hasselt University grades exams on a scale from 0 to 20 per programme component. These grades should be interpreted as follows:

  • 0-9: unsatisfactory
  • 10-13: satisfactory
  • 14-15: good
  • 16-17: very good
  • 18 or above: excellent

How do Hasselt University grades convert to ECTS grades?

ECTS grade % of successful students normally achieving it Definition
A 10 EXCELLENT: outstanding performance with only minor errors
B 25 VERY GOOD: above average but with some errors
C 30 GOOD: generally sound work with a number of notable errors
D 25 SATISFACTORY: fair but with significant shortcomings
E 10 SUFFICIENT: performance meets the minimum criteria
FX - FAIL X: some more work is required before credits can be awarded
F - FAIL: considerable further work is required

 Based on a statistical distribution of grades, the following scale must be used:  

ECTS grade Hasselt University grade
A 17 or higher
B 15 - 16
C 13 - 14
D 11 - 12
E 10
FX 08 - 09
F < 08

Transcript of records

At the end of an exchange programme, the home institution will receive a transcript of the student's records with the result obtained for each programme component, as well as the number of ECTS credits. Only the programme components mentioned in the definitive learning agreement will be shown on the transcript of records, as the student was only registered for those programme components.
