ECTS credits – European Students
The European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) is a standard means for comparing academic credits, i.e., the “volume of learning based on the defined learning outcomes and their associated workload” for higher education across the European Union and other collaborating European countries.
More about the recognition of learning experiences abroad.
60 ECTS credits are the equivalent of a full year of study or work. In a standard academic year, these credits are usually broken down into several smaller modules. A typical ‘short cycle qualification’ typically includes 90-120 ECTS credits. A ‘first cycle’ (or bachelor’s) degree consists of either 180 or 240 ECTS credits. Usually a ‘second cycle’ (or master’s) degree equates to 90 or 120 ECTS credits. The use of the ECTS at the ‘third cycle’, or Ph.D. level, varies.
ECTS credits are used to facilitate transfer and progression throughout the EU. ECTS also includes a standard grading scale, intended to be shown in addition to local (i.e. national) standard grades
