If a student receives grades for studies or exams abroad, these foreign grades must be recalculated to be credited at RWTH. The faculties' examination boards or the persons they authorize are responsible for recalculating the grades. The recommendations below are for the individuals, who recalculate the grades. They should help to make the recalculation of foreign grades transparent, fair, and consistent throughout RWTH.

The table for grade recalculation is updated as needed by the RWTH International Office. If adjustments have been made that lead to a worse grade in individual cases, students can request for the old version of the grade recalcuation table to be used, if the currently valid table published on this page is dated after they had begun their stay abroad.
