Conversion of German university grades into GPA (USA)

Hello,

can someone please tell me what a German intermediate diploma 1.7 as a GPA in the USA is worth. Didn't find a decent official conversion table on the internet. Maybe someone has experience from their stay abroad.

thanks

I think the link below reflects that quite well:

www.uni-erfurt.de/foreign/studiumausl/UmrechnungUSA.pdf

The results also fit very well with my experience with grade conversion from the USA

Have fun in the USA

Re: Conversion of German university grades into GPA (USA)

Hello,
there is no official conversion table. Apply with the intermediate diploma at the university, they already know what the value is. Possibly a list from your university of how many people have achieved a given grade.
The grades in the USA tend to be very generous. E.g. at San Diego State University nobody gets below 1.0 :-)

Re: Conversion of German university grades into GPA (USA)

Thanks. I will probably do it that way with an intermediate diploma and a list of the placement in the semester, because with the conversion from Erfurt, which I can understand and have also used on a trial basis, you only get 3.3 and this is a joke in the USA whereas in Germany a preliminary diploma of 1.7 is above average. I think that the conversion is rather bad ...

By the way, there is an official conversion authority www.wes.org, where I found the overview for converting school grades where an average of up to 2.5 in Germany is a smooth A. And this is not a German shop. So the German notes are pushing quite a bit upwards ...

Re:

The Erfurt system, however, tends to transfer American notes into US notes and does not take into account that German notes are significantly harder. In my opinion, it is therefore not applicable backwards.

Hi,
how do you do that with the intermediate diploma?

do you mean to send a copy of the German intermediate diploma and hope that someone in the USA will understand?
So I would have tried to translate everything (certificates + grades + job references). Since I can't assume that they understand the German notation system.

Re: Conversion of German university grades into GPA (USA)

can tell you about my university. But only the other way around, had a B (master level) in the USA, which was credited to me as 2.3 in DE. As a GPA, B is a 3.0. So 1.7 would be something like 3.4

Re: Conversion of German university grades into GPA (USA)

Hey
So I'm studying in the USA and my Abi was 2.7 and was rated in the usa by wes.org with a 1.8 GPA. So please do not say that a 2.5 Abi is graded with an A.
I study finance in the usa at a private university and it is definitely not easier in germany. A friend with a degree came from Germany to do his master's degree at my university and can hardly keep up.

So to all of those who are jealous, don't talk without having a clue !!!!!

The Germans always like to make their grades weaker than they are. Here is the other side:

Bavarian formula:

(TopWert-ErreicherGPAindenUSA) / (Topwert-MinimalwertUmStudiumZuBassieren) the whole plus 1 then you have converted your average in Germany.

So, if you assume that the maximum value is 4.0 and the minimum value to get through is 2.0 / 1.0, then you can calculate the whole thing very easily.

Re: Conversion of German university grades into GPA (USA)

GPA 4.0 is 1.0 in the German grading system GPA 3.9 is 1.1 ....

The universities in the USA calculate in the same way

reply

Re: Conversion of German university grades into GPA (USA)

Never ever! Undergraduate grades in the USA are MUCH better than grades at German universities. I was at a US top 20 university for an exchange.

There is no general conversion formula. In general I would say: GPA 4.0 = to 1.4; GPA 3.9 = until 1.7

reply

Re: Conversion of German university grades into GPA (USA)

So 3.16 / 4.33 was credited to me as 2.0 in Germany. However, I also believe that grades in North America (especially the USA) are a little more generous. But I don't care, because I am in a much better position in competition with other business administrators in GER.

Re: Conversion of German university grades into GPA (USA

A lot of garbage is already being written here. There should be separate conversion tables for different classes (depending on the level of difficulty). I studied at a top 15 university in the USA and was also at the University of Bayreuth for a semester. The USA was much more difficult than Bayreuth and in the USA the average across all subjects is 3.2 - which one could quickly rewrite to 3.0 in Germany. Unfortunately, the note inflation in Germany is a joke and the business administration average in the USA was closer to 3.0. Here is my suggestion:
USA-> DEU
4,0 - 1,0
3,7 - 1,4
3,5 - 1,7
3,3 - 2,0
3,0 - 2,3
2,7 - 2,5
2,5 - 2,7
2,3 - 3,0
2,0 - 3,3
It's roughly right for a top university. Of course, you can argue about the nuances.

Re: Conversion of German university grades into GPA (USA)

I did a semester abroad in the USA.
I had my transcript of records translated by the examination office beforehand and sent it to the American International Office.

They then sent it back to me as a scan. Here everything up to 2.5 was an A.

For allegedly all of you having studied at top American universities, you really have no idea about science. Otherwise you would actually know that one should not infer the general from the individual case. So all the money was totally worth it.

The elite University of Oxford receives a record donation of almost 170 million euros from US billionaire and Blackstone CEO Stephen A. Schwarzman. Oxford University announces unprecedented investment in the humanities and an institute for ethics in artificial intelligence (AI). In order to conduct interdisciplinary research, the departments of history, linguistics, philology and phonetics, languages, music, philosophy, theology and religion are brought together.

The International Student Identity Card - ISIC for short - is the only student ID that is recognized worldwide. With the card, students receive discounts in over 132 countries around the globe. The international student ID has been around for 60 years.

The current IEC Study Guide 2019 will help you for a semester abroad or to study abroad. Prospective students can find helpful tips on 120 universities in more than 20 countries in the free study guide for studying abroad. Questions about financing, application, grade recognition, university rankings, study countries and partner universities are answered in detail.

Anyone who wants or has to prove their knowledge of foreign languages ​​in a student or professional environment will sooner or later not get around an official language certificate. However, it is not always easy to find your way through the flood of information on the subjects of “language tests”, “language exams” and “language diplomas”. If you want to take a language certificate, you should first find out exactly which proof is required in the specific case and how you can best prepare for the respective language exam.

A year abroad can have many incentives, better language skills, the desire to develop personally or simply the desire to travel. Regardless of whether it is a student exchange, language trip, au pair stay, internship abroad or study abroad, in a global world of work, career opportunities increase with every experience abroad.

Studying abroad or a semester abroad can be expensive. Saving the change you need for this can be done through part-time jobs or the parental allowance. However, the savings are often far from being sufficient. There are numerous options in Germany for financing your studies abroad. Auslandsbafög, education loans, scholarships, Erasmus & Co - WiWi-TReFF shows what support there is.

Whether greater self-confidence or increased language skills: a stay abroad during your studies ensures improvement in many areas. Children from non-academic families perceive this effect to be even more pronounced in certain areas. This is shown by an analysis by the CHE Center for University Development.

In 2015, almost 140,000 German students were enrolled to study abroad. The most popular host countries include Austria, the Netherlands, Great Britain and Switzerland. Popular destinations for short semesters abroad are Great Britain, the USA, France and Spain. Currently, more than a third of all students spend part of their studies abroad. In 2017, more than 355,000 foreign students were enrolled at German universities for the first time.

More and more German students want to study internationally: In 2014 137,000 students went abroad. The neighboring country Austria is the most popular, followed by the Netherlands, Great Britain and Switzerland. Business students are particularly drawn to the Netherlands.

The goal of learning a language intensively and up close is a great side effect of studying abroad. But before the acceptance at a foreign university is successful, prospective students must first prove whether they already speak the language. The six levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages ​​(GES) provide information about the extent to which the understanding of a foreign language is sufficient. For this purpose, various language certificates have been developed that are recognized by universities, companies and other institutions for applications. Depending on which country comes into question, a certificate in TOEFL, IELTS, DELF, DALF or DELE must be proven.

The university rectors from Germany and Great Britain expect devastating consequences for studies and research after a possible Brexit. The EU facilitates collaboration among researchers, the sharing of resources and the exchange of important data. Students from both countries also benefit from this. There are currently 13,765 degree-seeking students and 4,428 Erasmus students from Germany in Great Britain.

English master’s courses are in great demand among companies and business students. A business master's abroad helps to orientate your studies internationally. Native-speaking master’s programs such as those at Griffith College Dublin in Ireland impart excellent knowledge of English in addition to economic content.

The number of stays abroad by students and university members continues to increase despite the noticeable financial crisis in several European countries. The mobility figures are stable and the number of internships in particular has increased significantly. This is shown by the study "Student and staff mobility in times of crisis" initiated by the DAAD.

Many economics students dare to move to a university abroad. How long do most of them stay there and which study countries are particularly popular?

Stays abroad are considered a plus point in the application. Anyone who has studied abroad demonstrates flexibility and organizational skills and understands the language and culture of the country. In addition, stays abroad are funded through numerous programs and grants.
