Verona Academy of Fine Arts uses the ECTS Grading system.
ECTS stands for European Credit Transfer System and is a part of the Erasmus EU programme for mobility of university students. ECTS is a tool for facilitating academic recognition between countries, which is one of the main aims of the Erasmus programme.
ECTS is based on the principle of mutual trust and confidence between the participating institutions. The key elements of ECTS are information (on the institution and on courses available), agreement (between the home and host institution, and with the student), and the transfer of credits.
The number of ECTS credits for each course reflects the total number of hours a student is expected to devote to the course (in the form of lectures, homework, reading, essays, consultations, seminars, etc.).
60 ECTS credits are attached to the workload of a full-time year of formal learning (academic year) and the associated learning outcomes.
At Verona Academy, one credit corresponds to 25 hours of student total work.
1 full academic year = 60 credits
1 semester = 30 credits
The Italian grading system is based on a maximum of 30 points with 18 as the lowest pass mark. “30 cum laude” (the highest pass mark) may also be awarded.
Verona Academy of Fine Arts provides the statistical distribution of grades in its courses in accordance with the descriptions in the ECTS Users’ Guide.
Transcripts of Records, together with the statistical distribution of grades, will be sent to the home institution no later than four weeks after the examinations have taken place.
