    In Denmark, courses and exams are measured in ECTS (The European Credit Transfer System). One semester is 30 ECTS, one full year is 60. The system aims at improving the academic acknowledgement of studying abroad as well as improving the acknowledgement of foreign transcripts.

    The confirmation of enrollment is valid either for the spring semester (starting 1 February) or the autumn semester (starting 1 September).

    Academic transcript

    Your academic transcript outlines the course of your education at Aalborg University. In STADS self-service, you can view and print out the exam results you have obtained during your enrollment at AAU.

    An academic transcript is divided into two parts:

    The first part describes the "parts" that your programme consists of, and the second part outlines your exam results, including any credit transfers.

    In STADS self-service, you can choose different types of transcripts:

    • "Success in English" = only passed exams will feature on the transcript
    • "Total in English" = all exams results are featured, including all attempts.

    If you need to have the transcript verified, e.g. in relation to an employer, please contact your study secretary.
