Grading and Certificates

Credits and Certificates

The Winter School gives ECTS credits for its courses. If you want to transfer your Winter School grades to degree programmes at your home university, check with your university advisors about transfer policies and procedures before registering for Winter School courses. The ECTS credits will show on the official transcript of records of the University of Jyväskylä.

The official transcripts will be sent to the students in March. 


At the Jyväskylä Winter School, courses are credited on a pass/fail basis. Sometimes grades are conveyed on a scale of 0 to 5. Grade 0 denotes failure. To obtain a grade of 5 (excellent), a student usually needs to show a strong interest in the class and acquire relatively large amounts of information regarding the topics discussed in the class. For more information on grading, please see the University of Jyväskylä Examination Regulations.
