Grading System

Your coursework will be graded in accordance with the German grading system (“1”–“5”, with “1” being the best and “5” the worst grade. If a course is graded with 4 or above then you have passed.

Not all courses are graded (non-graded lectures). If you need to have grades for the courses you take, in order to receive credit for the courses from your home university, speak with your lecturers early in the semester to see if it will be possible to get numerical grades for the courses.
