Grading system and equivalence of credits

ECTS credits

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.

Grades

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:
