Grade Point Average (GPA) system
From September 2017, the University of Hertfordshire is introducing a Grade Point Average (GPA) system, alongside the Honours Degree classification, to provide further evidence of the achievement of our students.
This is one of the many ways in which the University is achieving its aim to be internationally renowned as the UK’s leading business-facing university.
A Grade Point Average (or GPA) is an internationally recognised measure of student achievement. It is used to indicate progress during students’ studies and as a final measure of achievement upon the completion of a degree programme.
The University will award a 0-100 grade for each module studied along with a ‘Grade Point’. The GPA is then calculated as an average of the Grade Points for all of the modules on the degree programme.
