Danish marking scale

The ECTS marking scale

ECTS credits indicate the student workload required to complete a course. They reflect the relationship between the quantity of work required for each course and the quantity of work required to complete a full year of academic study at Business Academy Aarhus. 

In the ECTS system, 60 credits represents the workload for one academic year of study (two semesters), whereas 30 credits represents one semester. Credits are only granted for completed courses, which must be passed with an exam.
