What's in store for you?

Release date: 10 December 2014

The more mobile students become, the greater the demand for ‘fair’ grades awarded during students’ study abroad experiences. The new Erasmus+ programme (2014–2020) has the objective to increase mobility and improve grading and grade conversion. During this webinar you will gain a solution for performing more accurate grade conversions. You will be given hands-on examples of how to prepare and perform the grade conversion and will be provided with information on the European Grading Conversion System (Egracons) project. You will also receive the ECTS User’s guide (2009 and 2015 versions), a document with instructions for making grading tables, as well as a template for the grading tables.

  • All professionals that work with mobile students and with students that apply for study abroad within their university.
