The UNISCA grading system is consistent with the system used by the Political Science faculty at the University of Amsterdam. This grading system, ranging from 1-10 (1 = very poor, 10 = excellent), stipulates that a 5.5 average is needed in order to pass all of the aforementioned assignments, as well as to complete this course successfully. As mentioned before, students who successfully complete the entire course are awarded 6 ECs (European Credits) by the University of Amsterdam. Completion of the course requires approximately 168 hours of study.
If you are not registered at the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences (FMG) of the University of Amsterdam, you will (in most cases) need permission from your examination commission or study councillor in order to receive credits.
Most faculties in the Netherlands acknowledge the academic value of UNISCA and recognize its 6 ECs. However, students studying at universities other than the University of Amsterdam should note that each university is entitled to award its own amount of study credits for participation in the UNISCA course.
If you are not sure about the recognition of UNISCA at your university, please contact your study councillor or the UNISCA Foundation for more information.
