Grading

Students are permanently evaluated through their active involvement in class 

and conferences, quizzes, reports, written exams and other special
assignments. Evaluation procedures and tools and their relative value are
established by each professor at the beginning of each term and detailed in the
corresponding syllabus. In addition to academic performance, evaluation also
takes into account the ethics and sense of responsibility students demonstrate
in class.
At the end of the period of study, ESAN provides the home institution with a
report of the courses taken and grades achieved by each exchange student.
Transfer of academic credits is determined by the home institution. If students
are required to report their grades at their home university in GPA terms, ESAN
would provide the home university with enough information to convert grade
scales.

workload would be 12 credits per academic semester.
