Recognition

Taking back credits to your home university – will these be recognised?

In order to receive credits to take back to your home university, you will have to round off your courses in a satisfactory way. The grading system in the Netherlands can be different from the one you are used to. The lowest grade is 1 and the highest grade is 10. The lowest pass grade is 5,5. Fontys School of Sport Studies will provide you with a transcript of records, which will specify your obtained results. The maximum number of credits to achieve is 12. These ECTs are recognised throughout Europe and, possibly with extra required documentation, in most countries in the world.

The agreement between your home university and Fontys University of Applied Sciences includes a paragraph which states that obtained credits are officially recognised and transferred into records and grading system by your home university.
