The Rectorate of the University of Liechtenstein has decided that the cross-faculty electives shall be evaluated with numerical grades in the future, beginning with the winter semester 2019/20. Prior to the winter semester 2019/20, the achievements had been assessed simply as “passed/failed”.


What happens with the cross-faculty elective modules that were satisfactorily completed before the winter semester 2019/20?

  • These academic achievements (“passed/failed”) remain unchanged and will also be indicated in this form in transcripts of records and in the Diploma Supplement.

 Will the numerical grades be taken into account when calculating the grade average and the overall grade?

  •  Yes, the numerical grades awarded from the winter semester 2019/20 onwards for the satisfactorily completed modules of the cross-faculty electives will be indicated and taken into account in the calculation. The average or overall grade is calculated as the arithmetic mean of the module grades weighted by credits.

 What happens with those cross-faculty elective modules that have been successfully completed in addition to the credits required by the curriculum?

  • All successfully completed modules and achievements will be indicated in the Diploma Supplement. Upon successful completion of the study programme, students can choose which of the surplus modules from the cross-faculty electives will be identified as “extracurricular academic achievements”. These achievements will not be taken into account when determining the overall grade. Unless decided otherwise, those achievements that were completed most recently will be identified by default as “extracurricular academic achievements”. In the case of surplus modules from the cross-faculty electives, the staff from Study Services will be pleased to assist you.
