Grading system


The academic credit system adopted by the Italian universities is based on “CFU” (acronym for “Crediti Formativi Universitari”). A CFU corresponds to 25 hours of work per student, including time for personal study. For each didactic activity, the student gains a determined number of CFU. The European University of Rome generally recognizes the equivalence 1 CFU = 1 ECTS and adopts an ECTS mark conversion scale:

UER Grades ECTS Grades Decimal Grades
30 e lode/30 A+/A 10
29/27 B+/B- 9
26/25 C+/C 8
24/23 D+/D 7
22/18 E+/E- 6/5
<18 F 5/4
