The European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) is a tool of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) for making studies and courses more transparent and thus helping to enhance the quality of higher education. Its objective is to facilitate the planning, delivery and evaluation of study programs and student mobility by recognizing learning achievements and qualifications and periods of learning. Credit transfer is the key to successful study mobility. Institutions, faculties, departments may make agreements which guarantee automatic recognition and transfer of credits. The use of ECTS credits is facilitated and quality enhanced by the supporting documents (Course Catalogue, Learning Agreement, Transcript of Records and Work Placement Certificate). ECTS also contributes to transparency in other documents such as the diploma Supplement.

ECTS Credits

1 full academic year = 60 credit points

1 full semester = 30 credit points

3 months semester = 20 credit points

After passing a subject and getting at least a satisfactory result, an international exchange Erasmus+ student will be given ECTS credit points as it was stated in the Learning Agreement for Studies.
