E.C.T.S. Credits

The European Credit Transfer System (E.C.T.S.) is a student-centred system based on the workload students have to undertake in order to meet the objectives of the programme, which are defined in terms of learning outcomes and skills to be acquired.

The E.C.T.S. makes it easier to understand and compare study programmes for both local and international students. It also facilitates international mobility and academic recognition.

  • A numerical value that reflects the overall amount or work to be provided by the student in order to meet the programme's objectives is attributed to each Teaching Unit.
  • Each degree requires that a specific number of credits be obtained and the duration of studies is expressed in E.C.T.S. credits;
    • 180 E.C.T.S. credits for a European Bachelor's degree
    • 60 E.C.T.S. credits for a Level I European Master's degree - admission requirements: Bachelor's degree
    • 120 E.C.T.S. credits for a Level II European Master's degree - admission requirements: Bachelor's degree
  • These credits are registered throughout the year and are recorded at the end of each year on an annual Transcript of Records.
  • With respect to ongoing studies, the annual Transcript of Records that each student receives enables an easier future recognition of their degree, regardless of the country they choose to continue their studies in.
