Erasmus+ Mobility

In the following tables you can find the most important information on physical Erasmus mobility between YUFE universities. This includes information about the courses offered by partner universities, grading, housing, visas, insurance and other elements that are a part of students’ physical mobility

The information provided on this page is relevant for the academic year 2021/2022. When engaging with course catalogues of partner universities, please bear in mind that some of the institutions have yet to update the overall course catalogue for the academic year 2021/2022. Therefore, these lists of courses should only be used tentatively as a potential guiding factor for selecting a YUFE partner university at which you want to engage in physical mobility.

We also emphasise that these courses in overall course catalogue are only supplemental and additional to those offered in the YUFE course catalogue on the YUFE Virtual Campus. While you are allowed to combine these two groups of courses, we cannot guarantee the same chances that you will be awarded a seat in courses which are not in the YUFE course catalogue, since the procedure for those courses is completely separated from the YUFE programme.

Grading

Institution

Website for information

Maastricht UniversityVaries per UM Faculty. In general though, all courses are assessed with a whole or half grade on a scale from 0.0 to 10.0 or a no grade. It should be noted that a 10.0 is very rarely scored (fewer than 1% of students). A grade of 5.5 is usually considered a pass.
Nicolaus Copernicus University in TorunThe Nicolaus Copernicus University follows the ECTS scheme, which means that ECTS credits are allocated to course units, lectures, practical works, etc. at each faculty. In ECTS, 60 credits represent one year of study (in terms of workload); normally 30 credits are given for six months (a term/semester).

The Polish grading system in higher education is based on the 5 to 2 scale, where 5 is the best mark and 2 is the worst.

Moreover, students can also be marked with additional signs of + and -. Each of them equals half a point: + means 0.5 more. Some courses, however, are not evaluated on such a marking scheme and for these a student may simply obtain zal. or zaliczenie (EN. ‘pass’) which means that their workload was satisfactory and they have passed the course.

Tor Vergata University of RomeExams are marked out of 30:

  • exams that are awarded a mark between 0 and 17 out of 30 are considered as failed ones and must therefore be repeated;
  • a mark between 18 and 30 out of 30 allows students to obtain the credits provided for by the programme structure;
  • examination Board may award “lode” (cum laude) to students who achieve thirty out of thirty (30/30)

University of CyprusAt the University of Cyprus the grading system for each unit module is numeric from 0 to 10 rounded to the nearest half unit and a GPA of 5 is the passing grade.

Excellent: 8.5-10

Very Good: 6.5-8.49

Good: 5.0-6.49

University of Eastern FinlandThe Finnish national credit allocation and accumulation system is equivalent to the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS). This means that credits (opintopiste) are the same as those in the ECTS. One year of full-time studies requires about 1600 hours of work and corresponds to 60 credits (30 credits per semester). Lectures, exercises, seminars, independent studies as well as examinations have been included in this estimate of required workload of a student.

Grading of courses at the University of Eastern Finland follows two basic practices: 1) Pass or Fail, or 2) applying a numerical scale with grading from 0-5 (maximum) for passed courses.

Additional Information

Maastricht UniversityPlease note that Maastricht University uses the Problem Based Learning (PBL) methodology to teach. This requires students to actively take part in the tutorial meetings. The PBL method is explicitly student-centred rather than teacher-centred, and the students are expected to take the initiative. Speaking up and actively taking part in discussions is a crucial part of the system and this will also influence the students’ final grades. Therefore, it is extremely important that incoming students have an excellent knowledge of both written and spoken English (B2 level). More in-depth information about the Problem Based Learning can be found here.

Incoming students are to have had at least two semesters of relevant studies before taking any of the UM courses in the YUFE course catalogue.

Incoming students are only allowed to take master’s level courses if they already have a relevant bachelor’s degree; even then, acceptance depends on the hosting UM Faculty.
