STEP 3: ACADEMIC TRANSCRIPTS

In order for EABHES to correctly and timely produce student Academic Transcripts, schools need to provide EABHES with the Grades Matrix within 30 days from the end date of each academic period. Within 60 days from receiving the Grades Matrix and upon revision and validation from the school, the hard copy Transcripts must be sent by post to the school to be handed out to the students. The school is required to also send to EABHES a digital copy of all certificates (e.g: internship and additional activities), dated and signed.

For students that complete an internship or work placement, the school shall provide with EABHES Work Placement Certificate duly filled-in and/or a Work Placement Certificate by the company/school in order to have the relevant credits recognised and included in their Academic Transcripts. These documents shall be submitted no later than 30 days after the end of the work placement.

For the production of the Diploma or Certificate of Achievement, EABHES should have received, on time, all required documentation and information regarding the student performance in the programme. The student should have successfully passed all programme courses and required language tests. The Diploma of Accredited Studies needs to be stamped and signed by the school to be valid.

GRADING SYSTEM
ECTS Grading Scale

A student’s grades refer to the student’s assessment results. However, many different grading systems co-exist in Europe. In order to ensure that mobile students are treated fairly wherever their studies are undertaken, an ECTS grading system has been developed to complement the credit framework.
