Assessment and evaluation

Dance study programmes at the Academy of Theatre and Dance use a study load system that corresponds with the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). A full-time HBO study programme of 240 study credits (EC) is equivalent to 1680 hours of study annually, according to the Wet op het Hoger Onderwijs en Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek (Act governing Higher Education and Scientific Research) (WHW), in a combination of supervised and unsupervised learning.

Per semester, every dance study programme works with an integrated study range which focuses on programme components from various clusters. For that reason the semester is integrally evaluated. This means that students are awarded study credits on the basis of participation and quality throughout the whole semester and not only per subject. On condition their results are satisfactory, students receive 60 study credits per year (30 per semester).
