Requirements for passing
The HES/FHS gateway is made of two blocks. Each block weighs a given number of ECTS credits. Each block contains several subjects. Each subject weighs a given number of ECTS credits. The complete HES/FHS gateway weighs from 57 to 60 ECTS credits.
A block is passed (and thus all the credits associated with the block are acquired) when all the subjects it contains have been examined at least once and the weighted average of the block is 4,00 or above.
Failed subjects (final grade below 4,00) in a failed block may only be repeated once, in the academic year following the failed exam. Passed subjects (final grade 4,00 or above) and failed subjects in a passed block may not be repeated.
To pass the HES/FHS gateway, a student must:
- have acquired at least 30 credits at the end of the second semester of the HES/FHS gateway and
- have acquired all the required credits at the end of the fourth semester of the HES/FHS gateway.
