What are ECTS credits?

 

ECTS credits are a numerical value allocated to course units to describe the student workload needed to complete them. Each value reflects the quantity of work a course unit requires in relation to the total quantity of work necessary to complete a full year of academic study at a given institution. All forms of study are taken into consideration: lectures, tutorials, practical work, seminars, home assignments as well as examinations and other assessment activities.

In ECTS, 60 credits represent the workload of a year of study; normally 30 credits are given for a semester. It is assumed that all ECTS courses are mainstream courses of the participating institution, as followed by home students under normal regulations. It is up to the participating institution to assign credits for the different courses relative to their workload. Internships (practical placements) and optional courses which form an integral part of the course of study also receive academic credit. Non-credit courses may, however be mentioned in the transcript of records.

Credits are allocated to courses and awarded to students who successfully complete those courses by fulfilling all requirements and passing the examinations.
