ECTS (CREDITS)

The work activity and the grades acquired during the study period abroad shall be considered valid for the study path of provenance, since you will study in accordance with the Erasmus agreement between your university of provenance and the host one. The european credit system (ECTS) was enstablished by the European Commission in order to guarantee the common recognition procedures for the universitary study abroad and to simplify the mobility of students in Europe.

The italian grading system.

The italian grading system dictates a range between 18/30 and 30/30.

The highest grade is 30/30 cum laude. The exams under the 18/30 grade, are considered "failed".

The credits will be given only when the course along with all the requested assessment activities are completed.

ECTS Grade Approximate percentage of the students who successfully get the grade Grade expressed in number ECTS Definition and evaluation criteria
A 10 29-30 cum Laude EXCELLENT: an excellent work, with only minor mistakes
B 25 26-28 VERY GOOD: some errors, but generally a very good work.
C 30 23-25 GOOD: high comprehension level, with some basic mistakes
D 25 19-22 PASSING: an intermediate work, with some evident mistakes
E 10 18 SUFFICIENT: the work respects the requests
F - Failed exam You need much more study effort.

The ECTS programme (European Credit Transfer System) was developed by the European Commission in order to create a common procedure which is useful not only for the attribution of the academic credits, but also for the evaluation systems – to overcome the complexity of the different evaluation system implemented in each country. The ECTS system offers complementary information on the grades given to the students by their institution of origin, so that they can be "translated" into the local system. At eCampus University the correspondence between the ECTS grades and the italian grading system (expressed in thirtieths) is illustrated in detail in the ECTS Charter.
