What is the ECTS?

The Erasmus programme has proven to be not only an enriching experience and the best opportunity for you to travel, to broaden your horizons, and to gain insight into a different way of life, language and culture, but also an important and increasingly valuable asset to enhance your academic development and improve your employment prospects.

In order to ensure that students get the most out of their placement abroad, the European Commission introduced the ECTS (European Credit Transfer System). ETCS is a tool that facilitates the recognition of students’ workload and credit transfer when returning to their home institution, although this system also functions within a single institution or between institutions of the same country.

The ECTS is based on three key features:

  • Information on study programmes and students’ learning outcome   
  • Mutual recognition between member institutions and the student
  • Use of ECTS credits to measure student workload.

ECTS does not regulate contents, structure or equivalences for study programmes. These quality issues are to be determined by the higher education centres themselves when establishing bilateral or multilateral cooperation agreements. The ECTS allocates the number of credits so that students know how many subjects they are required to study in order to successfully complete a study programme.

The ECTS ensures the full recognition of studies. This is what makes ECTS different from any other student mobility programme.
