Grading of Study Modules

In most university studies, the degree structure is based on modules for which module grades must be applied. These modules include the basic and intermediate studies of bachelor’s degrees and the advanced studies of master’s degrees. The 30–60 credits covered by doctoral studies also form a module for which a module grade is required.

The module grades help both you and the university staff gain a clearer view of the progress of your studies. In addition to this, you may require a module grade for a specialisation (studies in a subject you intend to teach, for example).

Apply for a module grade for each study module you complete, once you have completed the desired courses and they have been registered. Check the courses encompassed by your study module in the curriculum guide.

Always apply for the module grade with the degree programme that includes the relevant studies.

If you have completed studies under a module that is not connected to any degree programme (e.g. Sustainable Development Module, Russian Studies), please view the module grade instructions in the curriculum of the relevant module.

If the module is evaluated with an actual grade, the grade is calculated based on the course grades as an average weighted by the number of credits.

Before graduation, you must also obtain a module grade for modules that will not complete. As a general rule, elective modules at least 15 credits in scope can be added to the degree certificate.

After you have completed a module you can apply for a module grade. Module grade is an official certificate of completed module. If the module is evaluated with an actual grade, the module grade is calculated based on the course grades as an average weighted by the number of credits. You don't receive module grade automaticly, you always have to apply for it.
You can apply for module grade in Nettirekka or by contacting avoin@uta.fi.
