ECTS credits are used at UNIL. 60 ECTS credits represent one year of full-time study.
Credits linked to a teaching unit (course, module) are awarded only if the student obtains a pass at the evaluation of the unit (examination, written assignement, continuous assessment, etc.).
Grading scheme from 0 to 6.
6 is the highest grade and 4 the minimum pass mark.
|1.5||almost no performance|
|0||Absence without good cause, cheating or attempt to cheat|
A transcript is sent to the home university, mentioning the credits and grades earned by the exchange student. The transcript is sent within four weeks after the end of the examination session.
UNIL participate in the EGRACONS project. EGRACONS is an online grade conversion tool. It is based of the distribution of grades within the participating institutions, and thus follows the recommendations of the 2015 ECTS User's Guide. Currently about 100 universities participate in this project.
Do not hesitate to join EGRACONS (free of charge) to benefit from a reliable and user-friendly grade conversion tool.
Otherwise, please refer to the distribution of awarded grades at UNIL to facilitate the grade conversion.
