Studies and grades recognition



  1. Academic recognition

    Every student of the European University of the Atlantic who is studying at other university and is taking an ERASMUS+, other international programs or bilateral agreements has the right for the academic recognition of the studies.

    Such recognition would have been previously agreed with the learning agreement, signed by the IRO and the student, in which the subjects that the student will take before the mobility program will be specified, as well as those subjects that will be recognized when coming back to UNEATLANTICO.

    The maximum academic recognition will be a whole academic year, its equivalent or the proportional part of the period during which the stay has lasted. Only the subjects to which the student is enrolled when beginning the mobility program are eligible for recognition.

  2. Grades recognition

    The grades conversion needs the following requirements:

    • Having received all the documentation proving the mobility program has ended, at the IRO.
    • Having received the official transcript of records issued by the host university. These transcripts of records may be submitted in two different ways:
      • In person, in this case, it will be necessary that the document is original and has the seal and signature of the host university.
      • In electronic format, in this case, it will be necessary that the file is submitted by the host university.
    • There must be a total coincidence between the subjects in the transcript of records and those that are in the learning agreement. Any deviation from the aforementioned agreement will not be taken into account.

    When the aforementioned requirements are met, the grades’ equivalence will be established, basing on the rules and procedures below as well as on the conversion table approved in accordance with the chancellor’s approval at September 1st, 2017.

    • The final grade that is obtained will be calculated proportionally to the numeric data available in each grade range.
    • o When there is no detail within a range, the average grade in such range will be used.
    • When several subjects from the host university are equivalent to a subject from UNEATLANTICO, the weighting average basing on the credits from each one will be calculated. The student will need to pass all the subjects, from which the average grade is obtained. If this is not the case, the final grade will be a fail.
    • Due to the different schedules of our universities, it is possible that the grades obtained at the foreign university do not arrive on time for the record of the Spanish subject. For this reason, students of the same subject who have taken that subject during a mobility program will be included in an annexed record, that will be closed once all the record of transcripts have been received.
    • Failed subjects can be passed if the student takes a resit exam in the host university or in UNEATLANTICO, prior notice to the undergraduate’s academic director, as long as the possible calls have not been exhausted. The maximum number of calls a student can have, be in UNEATLANTICO or the host university, are two.
    • In many countries, Higher Education institutions have a great autonomy to grade. Hence, it is possible to find different grading systems inside one university system. The grading conversion table tries to gather such variations but it is possible that some cases are not collected in such table. In case such a situation may arise, it will be taken into account to convert the grades and the table will then be modified as appropriate.
