Grading system

The University of Luxembourg uses the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS). ECTS credits are based on the workload students need in order to achieve expected learning outcomes; the workload indicates the time students typically need to complete all learning activities (such as lectures, seminars, projects, practical work, self-study and examinations)

1 ECTS corresponds to 25 - 30 hours workload - 30 ECTS credits are attached to the workload of a semester of formal learning (academic year) and the associated learning outcomes.

All grades are on 20 points, 10 being sufficient to pass a course.

A mark equivalence table is in annex 3 of the Règlement d’Ordre Intérieur of the University of Luxembourg.

Degree grades:

The weighted numerical average is translated into degree classification as follows:

“Excellent” : 18 ≤ weighted numerical average of all modules ≤ 20

“Very Good”: 16 ≤ weighted numerical average of all modules < 18

“Good”: 14 ≤ weighted numerical average of all modules < 16

“Fair”: 12 ≤ weighted numerical average of all modules < 14

“Pass”: 10 ≤ weighted numerical average of all modules < 12
