Grades and Credits at Brno University of Technology

Similarly to other Czech universities, BUT uses the European Credit Transfer System. The number of ECTS credits is a value allocated to a course to describe the student workload. The students are awarded the credits if they complete the course successfully. The ECTS grading scale is based on the rank of a student in a given assessment, that is how he/she performed relative to other students.

However, the Czech educational system does not require that all students be graded after completion of a course. Therefore, a big proportion of courses taught at Brno University of Technology are conceived in such a way that the students are awarded credits but no grade – either they pass (P) and are awarded the credits, or fail (F) and are awarded no credits.
