What are ECTS credits?

ECTS credits are a numerical value (between 5 and 20) given to course units to describe the student workload required to complete them. They reflect the quantity of work each course unit requires in relation to the total quantity of work necessary to complete a full year of academic study at the institution. Lectures, practical work, seminars, tutorials, field work, private study (in the library or at home) and examinations are included when estimating the quantity of work required for a course or a project.

How many ECTS credits are required for full-time enrolment?

30 ECTS credits for one semester and 60 ECTS credits for two semesters.
