item Collecting Credits
As international student at the Department of Automotive and Aeronautical Engineering you will attend courses. The lecturers will send your grades of each course to the Studenten Sekretariat of the HAW. Your results of each course will be displayed via MyHAW.

item Transcript of Records from Hamburg University of Applied Sciences
At the end of your stay you can obtain a "German Transcript of Records" from "Helios" (see above). Send a copy of this form to the International Office and ask for a translation towards an "International Transcript of Records". The transcript of records should show your courses, the amount of ECTS credits and your grades according to the ECTS. Ask to get your translated transcript of record signed.

item Translation of Grades
The German grades that you receive originally will be translated into ECTS grades using the table below (as long as no other table exists). Your home institution will then translate the ECTS grades into grades according to your local grading scale. In this way you can get credit for the courses that you took in Hamburg.
