What is ECTS?
ECTS stands for European Community Course Credit Transfer System. ECTS is a pilot project forming part of the ERASMUS Programme (European Community Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students). One of the main aims of ERASMUS (now SOCRATES) is the promotion of academic recognition throughout the European Community - and, as from the academic year 1992/93, between an EC Member State and any country belonging to the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) - in order to allow students to follow part of their study programme abroad.
ECTS is a decentralised system based upon the principle of mutual trust and confidence between the participating higher education institutions. The few rules of ECTS, concerning Information (on courses available), Agreement (between the home and host institutions) and the Use of Credit Points ( to indicate student workload) are set out to reinforce this mutual trust and confidence. Each ECTS department will describe the courses it offers not only in terms of content but also adding credits to each course.
