European Credit Transfer System (ECTS)
European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System
The European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) is an academic credit system for higher education widely used throughout the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). It is a central tool in the Bologna Process, and increases the transparency and understanding of qualifications within the EHEA.
How does ECTS work?
ECTS credits express the volume of learning based on the achievement of defined learning outcomes and their associated workload. The credits you accumulate are transferable, meaning you may be able to use them towards another programme offered by the same institution or by another institution.
The ECTS value of our degrees is displayed on our course pages. The typical credit ranges are 90-120 units for Master's degrees. The ECTS does not apply to doctoral programmes.
