Grades & Credits

Holar University College uses the ECTS system for systemic expalanation of students' workload.

ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) is based on the principle that 60 credits measure the workload of a full-time student during one academic year.

The student workload of a full-time study programme should be around 1500 - 1800 hours and thus one credit stands for around 25 - 30 working hours.


Grading scale: As a general rule grades are expressed on the 0-10 scale, where the passing grade is 5 and above. Course grades are given in increments of 0.5. Grade averages are computed to two decimal places: 5.00 to 5.99 is graded as Third Class, 6.00 to 7.24 as Second Class, 7.25 to 8.99 as First Class, 9.00 to 10.00 as First Class with Distinction.
