Grading System and ECTS
A detailed explanation of the grading system for our partner universities is available here: Grading System and ECTS at MU (see the Documents sections). The scale of grades used at Masaryk University is a part of every Transcript of Records, issued for international students at the end of their study at MU. See a sample of Transcript of Records (see the Documents sections).
For detailed information, see the MU Study and Examination Regulations.
At Masaryk University the ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) is used. This means that 60 ECTS represents the workload required for one year’s full-time study, or 30 ECTS/semester. As far as international exchange students are concerned, we require 20 ECTS/semester.
Students of Masaryk University (including exchange students) are entitled to 3 exam attempts for each course (provided that they fulfil the course requirements during the semester). This means that if the student fails the first attempt, he or she can try to pass the course once or twice more. Teachers provide at least 3 exam dates for each course towards the end of the teaching period and students are required to enrol for the exam slots in the Information System. The first exam date sometimes takes place during the last week of the teaching period, the rest takes place during the exam period. An example grade in a situation where the student first failed and then passed can look like this: “FD”. This means that the final grade is a “D”, but the first “F” negatively influences the grade average.
