ECTS Guide

By completing a course, seminar, module etc. you get awarded with ECTS-credit points. Every ECTS credit point stands hereby for a certain amount of work load. Typically, one year corresponds to 60 ECTS-credits. A 3-year Bachelors programme has therefore usually 180 ECTS-credits; a 2-year Masters programme usually 120 ECTS-credits.

Thanks to ECTS it became considerably easier, to get courses from different universities or summer schools acknowledged so it is not necessary to do courses already completed all-over again. We have a guide how to get ECTS during summer*!
