On this website you will find:

You will follow the examination procedure at the host institute, which can involve written and/or oral exams.
Exams take place in the language chosen by the host university.
The number of exams to take at the host university will depend on your study contract.


Recognition of your study trip abroad is guaranteed by your study contract, or Learning Agreement.

As well as the list of classes taken abroad, this document must indicate the number of ECTS (European Credits Transfer System) credits as follows:

- 60 ECTS credits for one academic year,

- 30 ECTS credits for one semester,

- and 20 ECTS credits for one quarter.

Your learning agreement must be validated by the Erasmus+ coordinator at your faculty/school/institute before your departure.

At the end of your mobility period, the host University will provide the University of Lille with a transcript of your grades based on the local grading system, the number of ECTS credits and the grades achieved based on this ECTS scale:

Grades ECTSStudents rankings
