European credit transfer system (ECTS)top

The European Community Course-Credit Transfer System (ECTS) was developed to provide common procedures to guarantee the academic recognition of studies abroad. It is based on the principle of mutual confidence and trust between the participating higher education institutions.

ECTS credits are a value allocated to course units to describe the student workload required to complete the course. They reflect the quantity of work each course unit requires in relation to the total quantity of work necessary to complete a full year of academic study at the institution. This includes lectures, practical work, seminars, tutorials, fieldwork, private study - in the library or at home - and examinations or other assessment activities. ECTS is thus based on a full student workload and not limited to contact hours only. In ECTS, 60 credits represent the workload of an academic year of study; a semester is normally 30 credits. One credit is awarded to 25 to 30 hours of student work. Credits are awarded only when the course has been completed and all required examinations have been passed.

All study programmes of UP FAMNIT are credited in accordance with the European Community Course-Credit Transfer System.
