In agreement with the Bologna process, which seeks to integrate education systems in Europe, the University of Alicante has adapted its credit system to that of the ECTS.
1 ECTS credit at UA equates to 25 hours of work in total: class contact hours (40%) and student independent work (60%); for example, if the course is allocated 6 ECTS, 60 hours are in class and 90 are from independent work of the student.
In the Spanish system, marks are graded from 1 to 10. At present, there is no official equivalence between the Spanish system and the ECTS one. Nevertheless, the folloiwng table can be used as a guidance:
Matrícula de Honor (9-10)
The most outstanding performance
Very good performance
