Credits allocated in recognition of extra-curricular activities

How it works

The UAB offers you the opportunity to obtain recognition of academic credits from degree programmes by undertaking activities that are not part of the curriculum, these can include activities that are cultural, sports-related, that involve student representation, charity/solidarity, cooperation, are related to the promotion of a healthy lifestyle, or to promote sustainability.     

These credits will be added to your academic record as optative credits, with a qualification of a pass but will not be taken into account when calculating grade averages on your academic record.

If you choose this option, you must obtain recognition for a minimum of 6 credits, which can be the result of adding together different activities, and you can acquire recognition for a maximum of 10% of the credits in your degree programme.

If you would like to know which activities you can receive recognition for this year, please check the full list of activities with academic credit recognition.
