EXTRACURRICULAR CREDITS

EABHES Accreditation recognises credits for extracurricular training and activities that students decide to engage in to enrich their studies (also called additional credits). Generally an extracurricular activity accounts for 1.5 ECTS credit. The total number of extracurricular credits that can be awarded to an individual student is limited, and they do not replace, in any case, other academic credits. The school decides the maximum amount of extracurricular credits that a student can be awarded; EABHES suggests to establish a limit range of 3 to 6 ECTS credits for extracurricular training.

The school decides the type of activities, training or learning experiences that are eligible for awarding additional credits to their students. This information will be shared with EABHES and will be included in the Course Catalogue for students’ reference. The following training and learning experiences are typically recognised for the award of additional credits:

Internships
Internships not stated in the Course Catalogue as part of the curriculum or any internship that lasts beyond the original duration as stated in the Course Catalogue must be accounted for as additional credits. The duration stated in weeks and the country in which the internship took place will define the number of additional credits to be awarded. For the recognition of internship additional credits, the school shall provide EABHES with a photocopy of the work placement certificate or employment certificate. Internship agreements are not official proof, as they do not confirm that the internship has actually been completed.

Official European Foreign Language Certificates (except English tests)
Students that have official European foreign language certificates can be awarded additional credits. For this purpose, students must have at least level B2 on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages for the European Bachelor’s degree and level C1 for the European Master’s degree.
