Academic recognition of mobility

All the training modules followed by an Incoming student at the HELdB are confirmed with the number of credits (ECTS) provided for in the learning agreement. The learning agreement is subject to consultation, analysis and validation between the HELdB and the partner.

These training modules are an integral part of the student’s curriculum. They are subject to examination and/or assessment. The results appear in the transcript of records following the equivalence table.

The HELdB will send the Transcript of Records to the student and his/her home institution within five weeks of the end of his/her stay/evaluation.

When it is not possible to establish a conversion table, the following credit transfer system is applied:

– Grades expressed in figures are transcribed as such in the student’s HELdB report card.

– Letter grades are subject to the grading scale available here according to the destination country.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to welcoming you to one of our departments🙂.


Looking for accomodation

The HELdB does not run its own student residences, so you will have to find a room on the private housing market.

However, we work actively with two partners (Citycampus and Erasmusplay) who can find a solution to your needs :
